Technology programs get $177,500 boost By Melissa Karren Signpost staff writer As technology advances in the manufacturing of new products, Weber State University competes with the best of them. IntercimCorp., an international computer-integration corporation, recently donated more than $177,500 in software and resources to WSU's mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology programs. Professor of manufacturing engineering technology Larry Leavitt said representatives of Intercim from Minneapolis, Minn., installed four state-of-the- Final recommendations by They have a long day ahead of them. Tomorrow at 8 a.m. while the Weber State University campus is at a virtual standstill members of the nine-member Student Fee Recommendation Committee will be seating themselves around a table in the Miller Administration Building to hammer out a final student fee recommendation.The final recommendation by the committee for the allocation of more than $4.3 mil I ion dollars will be decided at this day-long meeting.After weeks of hearing pleas rebellion industry software packages. They also provided access to the company's databases-One software package installed is FACTORYnet IS, a system that completes communication from a designer's computer system to a machine tool which creates the designed product, Leavitt said. He said that another package, Automatically Programmed Tools (APT), is a software language program used to give instructions to a machine tool used in part manufacturing.AutoPRO is a program which allows the transfer of a drawing created in AutoCAD (computer-aided drafting program) to a com by various fee-recipient groups on campus, the SFRC, co-chairecl by WSU Vice President of Student Services Marie Kotter and ASWSU president Chris Hatch, will discuss where the money will benefit the campus the most, Hatch said. "With an enrollment shortfall student fees have to go up 4 percent even without an increase," Hatch told the WSU Board of Trustees Thursday morning. "Most every group did ask for an increase. This year's meeting will prove to be lengthy." One of the hottest topics on the agenda will most likely beathletics. O puter-aided manufacturing program, he said. The STATNet2 is a quality assurance program which computerizes stress testing, component failure probability and component compatibility, Leavitt said. Stephen Reed, director of the WSU Technology Assistance Center, was instrumental in getting this grant for WSU. While he was the director of the Technology Assistance Center at Chattanooga State University, he established relationships with some Intercim representatives. Reed said this allowed WSU to use their technology to solve manufacturing problems and pro SFRC decided Saturday The Athletic Department asked for an 18 percent increase in student fees to pay for Title XI defaults. This has the university and the SFRC walking a tight rope: If the SFRC does not allocate the $150,000 requested by athletics to enhance women's sports and the Office of Civil Rights passes a negative judgement on gender equity progress at WSU, then the university could lose up to $20 million in federal funds. If the committee does toss athletics the total request, WSU students will have a hefty student fee bill tacked onto already-spiral ing tuition costs, and in the history of BRIAN NICHOLSON THE SIGNPOST vide educational opportunities on the new software for Utah industries through its Technology Assistance Center. "Larry Leavitt and I asked Intercim if they would be interested in establishing a partnership with Weber State whereby the university would have access to their hardware and software, in turn for being able to apply training to our students as well as the industry," Reed said. WSU is now serving as Intercim's regional training center in Utah.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
