Mechanical Engineering 1976 - 40th Reunion

class of Mech Eng '76 at the reunion
  • Grad year: 1976
  • Program: Mechanical Engineering

We had 23 attendees, which was nearly two thirds of our graduating class. Many travelled to join in - Doug from Chicago and Lloyd from Norway racked up the most air miles. We toured the Museum of Anthropology, had lunch and beer at the Point, followed by fantastic tours through the Mech Eng and Clean Energy facilities. These facilities are of course all new since we attended 40 some years ago. Dr. Steve Rogak and a number of his students showed us through their Mech labs and projects, which we felt was really above and beyond considering it was a Saturday afternoon. Then Dr. Arman Bonakdarpour and his students, again, in on a Saturday, toured us through their Clean Energy Research Centre facilities. We then headed to Mahoney and Sons for dinner, beer and time to catch up on who’s been doing what for the last 40 years.
