Benjamin Harman

Benjamin Harman, from Weston, will graduate with a degree in global supply chain management and a minor in marketing. He has served as a mentor for the WVU Honors College, student ambassador for the Chambers College of Business and Economic and is a member of Phi Beta Lambda.

Harman has also served as the president of the Supply Chain Management Association, a rhythm guitarist for the WVU Bluegrass and Old-Time Bands, and a volunteer musician with 4-H camps.

A technology enthusiast, he was selected to travel to Silicon Valley as part of a WVU delegation to identify cutting-edge hardware and platforms to bring immersive virtual reality experiences, tours and learning to the Wehrle Global Chain Lab in the new Reynolds Hall

Harman was also selected by faculty to join a team of researchers from the Davis College, Statler College and WV Department of Agriculture to conduct a consumer market analysis in the implementation of agricultural robotics and automation to help empower small farmers in West Virginia.

As an independent researcher, he has studied extended reality technology such as the use of digit twins in warehouses and other facilities to minimize errors and increase productivity—operations not feasible to prototype in the real world.

Propelled by his entrepreneur spirit, he is the co-founder of 3D Realty WV LLC. Serving the Greater Morgantown Area, his company focuses on bringing back local business to West Virginia by offering premium custom real estate 3D Matterport virtual tours and a wide range of other multimedia services.

After graduation, Harman plans to work for Northrop Grumman, and ultimately, he plans to bring his industry experience back to West Virginia, a desire that grew even stronger while conducting research on smart agriculture in the Mountain State.
