      SWE Central Indiana's Cummins Technical Center Tour

      Join us from 4:00pm-6:00pm on Tuesday, July 23 for a guided educational tour of the Cummins Technical Center (CTC) in Columbus, IN followed by networking and dinner at Upland Brewing Company. This is a great way to learn more about the engineering at Cummins, as well as a way to network with SWE and non-SWE professionals around Indiana! The Cummins Technical Center, employing approximately 600 engineers and support personnel,  is responsible for the creation and application of technologies for component, subsystem, engine and total system product development to meet future emissions and energy efficiency demands. Complimentary business units design, manufacture, distribute and service a broad portfolio of power solutions from diesel and natural gas engines to hybrid and electric platforms, as well as related technologies, including battery systems, fuel systems, controls, air handling, filtration, emission solutions, and electrical power generation systems. The  Cummins Technical Center opened in 1967 and played a key role in developing products including the Big Cam engine, V Series engine, and technologies around emissions measurement and control. The building was designed by Harry Wees Associates of Chicago in 1968 and has 60,000 square feet of floor space, including 88 test cells for testing power units up to 2,000 hp under a complete range of environmental and special test conditions.
