Dr. Nariman Farvardin, new president at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, visited MICRO on Monday, July, 11th. MICRO is a high precision, high technology contract manufacturer located in Somerset, New Jersey—specializing in disposable medical devices.
Hosted by Frank J Semcer, Sr., chairman of MICRO, Dr. Farvardin conducted a brief meeting with the many Stevens alumni engineers and co-op students employed at MICRO. Dr. Farvardin expressed his goal to openly communicate with students on campus and to stay in touch with past alumni—inviting them to return to Stevens to visit the campus any time.
Mr. Semcer of MICRO, a 1965 graduate and avid supporter of Stevens, explained at the meeting how beneficial it has been over the years to employ Stevens educated engineers—for their regimented work ethics and problem solving abilities. Mr. Semcer then conducted a tour of the manufacturing facility and explained to Dr. Farvardin how the various departments and equipment functioned together to create precision components and instruments.
