IRVINE, Calif. – FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc. hosted 16 California State University, Fullerton students Friday, November 2nd, 2012 at their Irvine Headquarters office.

Shortly after the release of FUTEK’s involvement with the NASA JPL Mars Rover Curiosity mission, CSUF’s Academic English Program approached FUTEK for an on-site visit and company overview for several of their engineering and computer science students.

FUTEK, an industrial manufacturing house specializing in the design and development of test and measurement sensors, gladly accepted this request and arranged for the students and faculty of the program to spend an afternoon at their home office.

With 16 students in attendance, FUTEK team members (those of whom also attended and graduated CSUF) shared their responsibilities and projects within FUTEK.


Richard Walker, Technical Director, and John Vargas, Project Manager, briefly led everyone through an overview of FUTEK, as well as presented an in-depth analysis on FUTEK involvement with aerospace projects, including the Curiosity mission. Students and faculty in attendance were given the chance to touch several of the sensor units that will be instrumental in an upcoming NASA project.

As the afternoon continued, Titan pride filled the hallways of FUTEK as Business Development Associate and CSUF alumnus Ehsan Mokhberi guided the students through FUTEK’s production line. During this tour, students were able to experience the machining of sensor flexures to the wiring and calibration of FUTEK’s sensor units.

With a thorough understanding of FUTEK’s daily practices, all alumni, students and faculty gathered outside of FUTEK’s office for a communal photo op.

FUTEK would like to express their sincere gratitude to Professor Luster, Professor Azimi, and all the students who graciously took time to visit their facility. What an inspiring way to meet the future of the engineering community. Go Titans!
