Engineering students get first tour of OSU DISCOVERY building donated by Baker Hughes
Friday, October 2, 2020
This week, six OSU engineering students were given the first student tour of the Baker Hughes building in the OKC Innovation District now known as OSU DISCOVERY. Led by OSU College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology Dean Dr. Paul Tikalsky and Jason Angolano, Baker Hughes laboratory operations manager, the tour included an exclusive look at the high-tech lab where hands-on, experiential learning will soon be taking place.
OSU DISCOVERY is the result of an exciting tech collaboration with Baker Hughes, an energy technology company. The facility is the centerpiece of this arrangement and will grant students from OSU’s College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT) hands-on access to world-class labs, technology and industry expertise.
The collaboration will bring industry and academic experts under one roof, creating experiential learning opportunities for OSU students and supporting Baker Hughes researchers in applying technology-driven solutions for energy and industrial sectors. Additionally, OSU students will work with Baker Hughes experts and technologists to advance key technologies in the areas of aerospace, mechanical, electrical, chemical and petroleum engineering. OSU will also host classes for its Master of Petroleum Engineering program at the center and provide hands-on experience in a state-of-the-art lab facility.
