Senior Stephen Hatch earns Rockwell Automation’s Student Associate Innovation Award

Rockwell Automation named senior Stephen Hatch one of its three Student Associate Innovation Award winners. Hatch, a computer engineering major, is doing a co-op at Rockwell Automation, during which he developed an automated way to compare icons for several hundred devices against a known baseline. His work “was important to guarantee the quality of the software in a fast and easily reproducible manner, and ultimately promote a positive user experience,” his manager said. The award honors three students who demonstrate leadership skills and develop creative solutions to business challenges.
