With a $1 million donation, Lincoln Electric (Cleveland, Ohio) has co-funded the first endowed professorship in welding engineering at Ohio State University. Lincoln Electric also donated or consigned nearly $420,000 worth of welding equipment and technology for use by Ohio State students and faculty. As part of the university’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the professorship will recruit a new faculty member for the 2015-2016 academic year.

In addition to those of the welding engineering program, students and faculty in mechanical and aerospace engineering, integrated systems engineering and agricultural engineering will be able to use Lincoln Electric’s donated arc welders, training simulators, fume extraction units, plasma cutters, software and safety equipment. Manufacturing research collaborations and partnerships will also use the technology.
