The company, which had a relationship with Greg Bartholomew, executive director of network, infrastructure and cloud services at the University, has been in business for over 30 years. Chuck Veth, president of CVM, says the business was “made on an idea and an entrepreneurial spirit.

“It is an honor to use our equipment to spark the interest of future engineers, IT managers and other professionals in such a growing part of our economy,” he said. “We hope our story will have an impact on students over the next few years. ”

Nicholas Bellinger ’20, a systems engineer for CVM who earned a degree in computer science, also helped facilitate the donation. CVM staff say they are excited about the opportunities it will offer students.

While these are no longer the newer models, Veth says the equipment the company donated has similar architecture to the newer models. He is convinced that it can provide a platform for experimentation, testing and learning.

“By donating this equipment, we can hopefully spark the interest of computer science students at the University,” he said. “Many of our engineers were inspired by developing an understanding of equipment like this during their time at school. ”
