WKU Engineering Reunion - 10 years of Graduates

 





Dr. Julie Ellis and the WKU Department of Engineering
invite you to celebrate the
10th Year of Graduates from the WKU Engineering Programs.

The first class from our engineering programs graduated in May 2004, following many years of great graduates from our earlier engineering technology programs.  As of May 2013, there will be more than 450 graduates of the WKU Engineering programs and more than 1000 graduates of our engineering technology programs. All these folks are out in the world, making a difference. We want to celebrate this accomplishment and our fine heritage with a good old-fashioned family reunion.

Please plan to join us!
