ENE Names 2018 Interdisciplinary Engineering Outstanding Alumni: Russell P. Troyer (BS IDE '72)

Russell P. Troyer began his Purdue education in the fall of 1968 with hopes to one day design spaceships to Mars - or at least fighter planes - with a degree in aeronautical engineering. It was about halfway through his degree that he learned what aeronautical engineers were actually doing in the field. The jobs didn’t have anything to do with design or anything else as exciting as he had anticipated. Russ knew he needed to make a decision, which is where his story with Interdisciplinary Engineering began.
