New Ohio State University Technology Labs Focus on Ag & Construction

Jun 01, 2023

The Ohio State University has received a gift from Trimble, a technology company, to establish technology labs for the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences(CFAES). This gift of software and hardware represents the largest philanthropic gift-in-kind investment to support teaching, research and outreach in the history of CFAES.

The multidisciplinary labs at Ohio State will enhance teaching, research and outreach activities in food and agricultural engineering, construction management and natural resources. The Trimble technology labs will be located on the Columbus campus and Ohio State ATI on the CFAES Wooster campus. The labs will be the first to include Trimble agriculture solutions.

The centerpieces of this gift are customized training workstations that simulate the use of Trimble agriculture hardware and software in the classroom environment. This technology will instruct students on machine guidance control and steering in the classroom, as well as field leveling and water management systems. The workstations will enable students to interact with technology in the classroom before they begin working with equipment in the field.
