Keith Stegath

Keith Stegath received his first degree in 1978 and started a diverse career as a licensed auto mechanic. In 1979 he became a machinist and CNC programmer then in 1980 entered the CAD/CAM/CAE industry. The hardware and software industry kept him challenged for nearly fifteen years with experiences as a CAD designer, programmer, instructor, sales support engineer, technical support engineer, and product developer. In 1993 he returned to his roots as a mechanic and started a business restoring vintage automobiles. Seven years later the love of technology beckoned him to merge his computer, mechanical, and electrical experiences into a unified field: robotics. To fulfill his passion, in 2005 he obtained a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and a Masters Degree in 2007 from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the University of Florida.
