Rome Sentinel: Meyda lights way for SUNY teams
YORKVILLE — As renovations were implemented at the Marcy campus of SUNY Polytechnic Institute, the college’s engineering clubs were unclear of the fate of their 2017 season for extra curricular programs and competitions.
During “Manufacturer’s Day” at SUNY Poly, Max Cohen of Meyda Lighting met several engineering students who expressed concern for the lack of a location to build their projects. SUNY Poly is currently upgrading the machine shop and labs in Donovan Hall, removing the machines and placing them in storage -- leaving club members and other students without a place to work on their application projects, capstone projects and club competition entries. The Baja and Bridge Builders needed a place to fabricate their car and weight-bearing bridge projects.
