Trying to see how a panoramic photo shows on Facebook so any feedback on the format will be helpful!
Hello friends and family of ONU Technological Studies. I am one of the few people doing the move this summer from Taft to Biggs. I will be doing my very best to keep everyone up to date on the progress here on out as well as post pictures and video of some of the more interesting things. If you have any sort of questions I will do my best to either answer them myself or get the answer from someone who knows better than I.

Ohio Northern University's Department of Technological Studies We are an academic department in the Getty College of Arts and Sciences educating students in manufacturing technology, robotics, construction management, and technology education.

Operating as usual


Another successful ATMAE robotics contest in Charlotte, NC: 2 first places and 2nd place overall! Good job to Kiana Curtiss, Karsyn McGinn, Jordon Bailey, Dakota Pier, and Sam Pencil!


The Communications and Marketing Crew working on the assist to bring the Sustainability Lab to life.


It was good to see four of our fine Technology Education Grads at the Ohio Technology and Engineering Conference at the Point in Westerville this morning! These four are really making a difference in their respective schools.


Tech Studies students help break Guinness Book of World record! With this record, of 1000 pairs of individuals from Ada K-12 schools and Ohio Northern tossing footballs at the same time!

We have a very involved board that does an amazing job of promoting our department and assisting in the growth of all three of our majors. Friday, the board worked with the faculty on strategic planning and our upcoming accreditation.
One our founding board members Jon Bennett, who has been instrumental in out Technology Education initiatives and gave service from 2003-2019, is moving on to bigger things. The faculty and students thank Jon for his service and wish him all the best moving forward.


Homecoming cookout on Friday with the students and the Technological Studies Industrial Advisory Board. Great to be a “Techie”


CM students getting the “construction guy” ready for homecoming. Come by and get your picture taken with “Bob the Builder” during homecoming. Go Bears!

Time to get rid of the unwanted and start the clean up process.


The James Halderman sustainability lab renovation is getting started and the CM students are demoing and discussing next moves.


Just wanted to throw this photo out from the Germany trip and enjoying the salt mines with faculty and alumni. Something to look forward to as a tech major at ONU - the Germany tour of industries!


Well things continue to come together on the move. Students are pitching in and labs are taking shape.

It is great when you see students working in groups and learning outside the classroom.


Getting ready for the great spaghetti challenge in the new plastics lab.


Hi All,
Been a few days but everyone is working hard in Tech Studies to open up classrooms, labs, offices. Here is the first in a series of photos as our transformation is taking place.


Hey in the midst of moving and setting up, thought I would throw a few pictures out there to the masses as we are down to the finish line with a long way to go. The student organization rooms, material science room and the office are standing tall with a little more work.


The labs are coming together and looking to be finished up. The “emerging Technologies” lab is getting squared away along with many others.


Things are starting to move rapidly for the new home of Tech Studies. Classrooms are ready to go, computer labs are being set up, labs are being stocked and with a little over a week to go. Mike Zembower, TJ Sturgill, and Kruse Ranley have done a yeoman’s undertaking and have continued to amaze. Take a look, look past the boxes and see the work that has been done.


Production lab and the machine lab have undergone their changes and found a new home, just have a few things to move around as you can see


Things are starting to move. Starting to work on welding and casting lab.
