The engineering lab at UWM at Washington County has received another equipment donation from one of its foremost industry supporters, Hydro Electric Devices, Inc. (HED). HED is a global provider of leading-edge electronic control modules for on-vehicle applications. Their donation includes top-of-the-line oscilloscopes, professional quality soldering and de-soldering stations, and related soldering components.

The company, which is based in Hartford, WI, has a long-standing and much-appreciated tradition of supporting the campus’ engineering program. Carlee Morrison, a former engineering student at UWM at Washington County, spearheaded equipment donations as an engineering intern at HED. Since winning departmental honors in engineering on our campus in 2020, Carlee has transferred to UWM’s main campus where she is completing her degree in electrical engineering.

“That the forward-thinking, industry-driven R&D folks at HED continue to contribute to our program in such sizable and substantial ways is a tremendous benefit to both our students’ hands-on experience and to our future curriculum development,” said Engineering and Physics Lecturer, Julie Cease. “We greatly appreciate HED’s timely and generous support and look forward to our continued partnership!”
