Walter Hansen is a mechanical and systems engineer at The Ohio State University’s Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME). He joined CDME in March of 2018. Walter has over 20 years of experience in industrial manufacturing, research and development, and process automation.

He has helped build and grow the Artificially Intelligent Manufacturing Systems (AIMS) Lab, where industrial manufacturing partners are provided with a low-risk means to develop and test new manufacturing solutions, and students have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with industrial robotics, computer vision and A.I.

“The projects we undertake at CDME are often very ambitious, requiring us to develop cutting-edge technology and constantly learn new skills. Aside from the thrill of learning and satisfaction of personal growth, being able to share those experiences with the next generation of engineers is immensely rewarding.”

He attended The Ohio State University, where he received both his B.S. and M.S. degrees in mechanical engineering.

Walter was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, the city where he now resides.
