Pennsylvania College of Technology Celebrate Donors

Press Release
Cambridge Vacuum Engineering Amongst Heritage Society Honourees

Pennsylvania College of Technology (PCT) recently honoured its donors after a ‘best-ever’ philanthropic year. Amongst the list were Cambridge Vacuum Engineering (CVE), who partnered with Penn College in early 2020, resulting in PCT acquiring a CVE electron beam welding machine.

The event saw Penn College recognise honourees for their unwavering support that ignited a record-setting year for institutional fundraising.

The annual event took place in front of the Penn College Donor Wall, which pays permanent tribute to those whose contributions of gifts, pledges, donations and entrustments of equipment and technology significantly empower students – including CVE who feature under the Heritage Society section.

CVE Support the Welding Expansion Project

The recognition is a result of the $2m Welding Expansion Project that added 35,000 sq. ft. of space to the College’s instructional lab, as well as new systems and technologies. The state-of-the-art welding lab features a CVE welding machine – believed to be the only electron beam welder used for instruction in U.S. higher education. Next door to the welder, you can find advanced laser welding and cutting processes (including CNC plasma cutters) and a full lab of automation and robotics.

Principal supporters for the expansion project included Cambridge Vacuum Engineering, BAE Systems, Kuka Robotics Systems, Lincoln Electric and more.

As a result, the College can enrol up to 60 more welding students annually – more than 300 in total. The welding lab was first extended in 2010 but has had to be expanded again due to the programme’s popularity and growing demand for graduates in the industry.
