The Gene Haas Foundation donates funding on an annual basis for scholarships awarded to selected ME Instructional Machine Shop student shop workers. The Gene Haas Foundation Fellows receive additional training on the CNC mill, and through a multi-year process they become “train-the-trainers” for the shop’s mill. The machine shop, located in the basement of Brown Hall, is home to two Haas CNC mills. Gene Haas, founder of Haas Automation Inc., started the Gene Haas Foundation in 1999 to support efforts to introduce students to careers in machining and related technologies. That goal is primarily accomplished by funding student scholarships for graduating high school students, displaced workers and military veterans. Based in Oxford, California, Haas Automation is America’s leading machine tool builder.
