ICON's Shop Departments Provide Expertise to USU Engineering Students

USU's Engineering Department has found a friend in ICON's shop departments. USU reached out for help with components for battle bots that were going to competition in Colorado. The shops machined and fabricated many parts for the bot, as well as all of its weapons.

USU's battle bot fared well in competition. It defeated last year's champion and this year's champion, but for reasons unknown to us, was unable to go in the championship round.

The second project USU sought assistance with was an ATV competition in California. The engineering students designed the ATV and our shops built the hubs, gears, and sprockets.

Not only do the employees of the shop departments have a full plate of work of their own, but they make time to assist and be part of our community. Way to go guys! Thanks for representing ICON.
