1995 Distinguished Engineering Alumni

The 32nd Annual Distinguished Engineering Alumni Convocation
Friday, April 21, 1995

There is something very special about Purdue Engineers. Their reputation precedes them, and their accomplishments set them apart. The men and women who have earned the right to call themselves Distinguished Engineering Alumni include leaders in their profession, in business, industry, education, science, and government. They have founded corporations, built cities, and walked in space. They prove that a Purdue degree is only the beginning of a lifetime of education and high accomplishment.

Each year the Schools of Engineering look for graduates whose achievements are truly outstanding. There is never a shortage of qualified candidates. In recognizing them, Purdue reminds itself and its students that our standards must always be high and that the future is ours to build.
