CSUN Dedicates New Engineering Lab Named for Alum

Facility Will Enable Undergrads to Work With State-of-the-Art Machinery

Cal State Northridge acquired two new pieces of equipment in dedicating a College of Engineering and Computer Science lab in honor of Oxnard businessman and CSUN alumni Gene Haas on Tuesday, Oct. 6.

The Gene Haas Engineering Laboratory, named for the president of Haas Automation, Inc., will give undergraduate students the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art machinery that allows them to manufacture engine components with precision and accuracy.

"Haas Automation has agreed to allow CSUN students to use its equipment for nearly two years." said Larry Caretto, dean of the college. "They will provide all equipment upgrades and maintenance. It is quite unlikely we would have ever been able to afford to purchase these machines."

The equipment pieces, valued at more than $180,000, are completely computer-automated machines that can do different machining operations such as milling, drilling, tapping and boring. They will be used in the university's mechanical engineering program. Mechanical engineering professor Stewart Prince said the machines create the cornerstone of his academic program.

"Manufacturability is an increasing concern in engineering design," Prince said. "The college will be able to improve its instruction in design. Students will be able to see how modern manufacturing with computer controls is used to improve the production of their designs."

Haas, who was a business major here, worked his way through school at a machine shop. Eventually, he started his own machine shop and then Haas Automation, Inc., in 1983 to manufacture his own line of machine tools.

Haas is now the largest machine tool builder in the U.S. with annual revenues of more than $300 million. The company also is one of the largest employers in Ventura County.
