Students Tour Amazon Robotics!

 On Friday October 28, 32 freshmen enrolled in Honors IT101 accompanied Prof. Mark Frydenberg to Amazon Robotics in North Reading, MA. Amazon bought Kiva Systems, a robot manufacturer, in 2012, to gain control of the supply of these robots to streamline and automate the operations of Amazon’s fulfillment centers. Students toured the manufacturing facility to learn how the bots are assembled. Bentley alumnus Chad Wright M’01 Senior Director of IT, gave a presentation about the technology (and career opportunities in technology) that contribute to Amazon’s e-commerce success.
