BLOOMSBURG—Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s first graduating class of electrical and electronics engineering technology students will be recognized for their achievements at a luncheon Friday, May 12, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Monty’s Assembly Room.
“This program was designed to prepare students to go into careers in industry with hands-on experience,” according to Peter Stine, chairperson of the department of physics and engineering technology.
The EEET major is a five-year program that includes six-month industry work experiences. “These cooperative education experiences not only broadened students’ academic and industrial perspectives but also played a significant role in getting most of the May graduates already placed in a job,” said EEET program coordinator Biswajit Ray.
May EEET graduates are Matthew Colosimo, Catawissa; Matthew Dunkelberger, Mohrsville; Gregory Kehoe, Millville; Kyle Noss, Honey Grove; Christopher Root, Danville; and Owen Wesstrom and Jonathan Wolfe, both of Bloomsburg.
Graduating seniors, their parents, members of the Industrial Advisory Board, campus administrators and faculty members will be in attendance at the banquet. Members of the press are welcome to attend.
Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 8,000 students and offers 65 bachelor’s, 17 master’s and one doctoral degree.
