“Trine University students represented their alma mater in exemplary fashion as co-hosts of the 2011 National Convention,” said David Finley, Ph.D., Trine’s vice president for academic affairs, who served as master of ceremonies for the initiation and awards banquet during the convention.
Trine’s Tau Beta Pi chapter president Patrick Campbell, Sam Swerdlow, Jeremiah Hardwick and national convention assistant arrangements chair Chris Propp represented Trine University at the convention. Propp received special recognition for selecting the conference giveaway. Trine engineering students received recognition for designing the convention souvenir.
Attendees participated in focus groups tasked with identifying ways to improve member communication, increase alumnus involvement and enhance the experience of being a member of Tau Beta Pi.
Numerous companies and graduate schools attended the convention and discussed employment opportunities and graduate programs with engineering students. Recruiters from Cummins, Raytheon, Sandia Labs, Electro-Motive, EMC, International Paper, ITT, MIT Lincoln Labs, Oak Ridge National Lab, and the U.S. Navy, and graduate programs at Columbia, George Mason, George Washington, Iowa State, Kansas, Keck, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Purdue and Rutgers were on hand.
