Mechanical engineering 1977 - 40th reunion

Class of 1977 at th reunion
  • Grad year: 1977
  • Program: Mechanical Engineering

We were very impressed with the tour, discovering the high level of technology that has developed since we graduated with only slide-rules and basic calculators in our last year. The cutting edge of robotics using hologram programming awed us all. We thought the integration of course theory into projects was a brilliant idea instead of graduating only with a lot of theory – far more practical. The Alumni group filled in all the blanks in order to coordinate the day for us. With the cooperation of the weather, we thought the Ideas Lounge venue and the food were excellent.
