Domo arigato: robotics Colorado

Dan is a 2013 OSU Welding Engineering graduate who moved to Ft. Collins, Colorado, to start his Welding Engineering career at Wolf Robotics.  There, he joins recent OSU WE alumni Jared and Adam.

The transition from being a student to becoming an engineer has been pretty sweet. It was weird, at first, having all this free time with no WolfRoboticshomework or studying. I am glad I chose Wolf Robotics to be the place to start my career.

The people here are all pretty great, and I seem to fit in fine. The majority of my time has been spent training to ready me for on-site support at John Deere in Dubuque, Iowa. I have been sent to Lincoln Electric twice now for their Fanuc Robotics training classes. For my on-site support I am being relocated to Iowa for six months. The relocation is kind of a pain, but I’m excited to get the hands-on experience in a production atmosphere.

In addition to getting ready for relocation I am part a team putting together a capstone project for this year’s OSU Welding Engineering seniors. It is interesting being on the sponsor side of things and getting to see how much really goes into these projects. This is another experience I am glad to be a part of.

Moving to Colorado has also been pretty awesome. Having spent my entire life on the east side of the country, it has been a real eye-opener to what else is out there. Fort Collins is way smaller then Columbus, but there is always something to do.

I have been taking the dogs on hikes and swimming in the river, riding my bicycle all over, and when I just want to relax there are like 13 breweries in this town.

    Dan,

    I also did my internship at Wolf Robotics. I got to meet a lot of great people and gained some valuable work experience. I also loved Ft. Collins and thought that Colorado was great.

    Good luck in your future!
