Erie Engineering Firm to Expand After Move to Knowledge Park

Process and Data Automation, an Erie-based engineering and data-services firm, will relocate to Penn State Behrend’s Knowledge Park this spring. The company, which provides full-service industrial control systems for the food and beverage, metals, pet food and wastewater industries, withdrew a bid to purchase the vacant Ridgefield Elementary School in November.

Plastics Engineering Technology Student Produces a Winning Video

Stephen Levy, a senior plastics engineering technology major, produced a video that finished third in a student video contest sponsored by the Society of the Plastics Industry.“There's a great future in plastics.” It’s an iconic line from the 1967 classic film "The Graduate."

But for Stephen Levy, it's more than just a line in a movie. It’s a primary reason the Pittsburgh native chose to enroll at Penn State Behrend.

'Open Lab' Brings New Partners to Knowledge Park

Sometimes 1 mile can be 1 mile too far.

It was only 1 mile that separated Cybersonics Inc. from Penn State Behrend in 2009, but according to Jeff Vaitekunas, vice president of research and development at Cybersonics, being located across the highway from the University just wasn’t cutting it.

“I looked across that street, and when I saw those buildings I knew there was a great opportunity,” he said.

Wearable Computers no Longer just for Jetsons

Google Glass had nothing on the VuMan 3, a portable computer worn by Marines at Camp Pendleton in 1993. The system – a processor worn on a belt and wired to a headband display – led mechanics through a 50-page inspection checklist for amphibious tractors.

The checklist had 600 data points, which took six hours to complete. A second Marine then had to transcribe the notes.
