Amerikam/Ferris State University Engineering Project 2022 – Celebrating a 50 Year Legacy of Learning

Wednesday, April 27 was presentation day for the 50th annual Amerikam/Ferris State University Engineering project. Ferris State University’s Manufacturing Students visited Amerikam for a full day of project presentations, lunch, and a guided tour.

The Amerikam-Ferris Project tests students’ knowledge by assigning each team an Amerikam product. Teams analyze ways to manufacture the product, from design and tooling to equipment. Students then develop costs and sale prices for products. After weeks of hard work, each team presents their solutions to Amerikam managers and engineers and Ferris faculty. During the visit to Amerikam and at the conclusion of the presentations, managers and engineers lead students on a tour of the manufacturing facilities, lending insight into Amerikam’s production processes. Students also have opportunities to speak with representatives from the company’s purchasing, human resources, and quality assurance departments.
