‘HUG’ competition encourages students to embrace process manufacturing solutions
The Honeywell Users Group (HUG) student competition is now open to students in North and South America. It challenges students to design automation solutions to common problems facing process manufacturers.
This year, students can choose to design a plan that solves critical plant issues using either wireless technology, or simulation software. Selected students will present their winning entries to leading manufacturing companies and potential employers at the annual Americas Honeywell Users Group Symposium customer conference, held each June in Phoenix.
“The HUG student competition is part of Honeywell’s overall initiative to help nurture the talent that will drive the future of our manufacturing industries,” said Norm Gilsdorf, president of Honeywell Process Solutions and a Purdue alumnus. “Our customers operate some of the most critical facilities in the world, and the goal of this program is to give students a taste of some of those real-world problems that require critical thinking and cutting-edge technology.”
