JARED SCHATZINGER

BSME '15

I AM CONSTANTLY WORKING ON SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND HAVING MY PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS TESTED. EACH DAY IS FUN AND EXCITING.

Jared Schatzinger, BSME ’15, has always been intrigued by the idea of giving machines human characteristics. He added the robotics concentration to his mechanical engineering major to learn more about this exciting field. At ONU, he became involved in many clubs and activities. He loved participating in the Polar Robotics Club and taking on the Fighting Irish each spring. Today, he’s a robot programming engineer for Applied Manufacturing Technologies in Michigan. He currently designs new automation cells for Ford so that a large volume of car parts can be produced efficiently and safely.
