Brewing…On a College Campus?
In April 2018, Colorado State University (CSU), with support from both the university and industry companies like Malisko, opened a new hands-on brewing lab and industry showcase that will give students practical experience for careers in the brewing and fermentation industries. The lab is part of CSU’s state-of-the-art Fermentation Science and Technology (FST) program.
Automated brewing processes and precise control technologies to maintain product consistency and quality, while satisfying the discerning palates of the consumer base is nothing new to large multi-national and regional breweries. Today, smaller craft brewers are increasingly investing in these technologies for the same reason. Check out this video created by Colorado State University, featuring Malisko’s Dan Malyszko, that highlights the collaboration between industry and education to bring this state of the art brewery to campus.
A Major Donor to the Project
We have learned over the years that giving back to the community is a great source of inspiration and motivation for our team members. By combining our spirit of volunteerism, specialized skills, and economic resources, we knew we could be an asset to CSU students to set up the automation “brains” of the Lory Student Center and Gifford breweries. The students’ work is all part of a senior design project called “Brewery Design and Automation” sponsored by Malisko Engineering.
|“I recalled my own senior design project at CSU and thought, ‘How cool would it be to involve some of these engineering students in such a unique application?’ I wish I’d had exposure to industrial manufacturing design in college, but now being part of providing the platform and coaching the students is very rewarding.”
