“I have a vison of printing an entire robot that would walk off the printer,” said Pallavi Dhagat, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Oregon State University and president of the IEEE Magnetics Society.

Beyond 40 Hours

The thrill of taking a last-second shot is one of Joshua Gess’ indelible memories from playing wheelchair basketball at Auburn University. With 6 seconds on the clock — and down a point, 40-39, against Shepherd Spinal Center — Auburn called a timeout to map one last play. The team fanned out and jockeyed for position. Gess rolled off a pick and snagged the inbound pass at the right edge of the free-throw line.

Three seconds.

Although Tom Weller’s degrees are all in electrical engineering, he was not one of those kids who grew up taking apart electronics.

“I grew up cutting grass and painting houses,” Weller said of his Midwestern upbringing in Battle Creek, Michigan, known as “Cereal City,” the birthplace and headquarters of Kellogg’s.

Johnson Hall: Dedicated to Student Success

Oregon State University’s newest building is dedicated to the success of engineering students, and it bears the name of one of the College of Engineering’s most prominent alumni. 

Johnson Hall, named in honor of longtime college supporters Peter and Rosalie Johnson, serves primarily as home to the School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering. The $40 million, 58,000-square-foot facility, located on Oregon State’s central campus in Corvallis, also houses college-level programs geared toward student recruitment, retention, and success.
