Alumnus generosity revitalizes high bay

June 24, 2015

Thanks to the generosity of automotive executive and alumnus, William Kozyra ’80 B.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering, the flooring in the high bay recently was upgraded with a new professional epoxy finish.

Kozyra is an advocate for the College of Engineering & Science serving on the Dean’s Advisory Board.  In March, he was the keynote speaker at UDM motivating young engineers to pursue careers in the automotive industry.  Kozyra graciously provided the resources to enhance the high bay space, which serves a dual purpose for the student hands-on research and University events.

Dr. Gary Kuleck, Dean of the College of Engineering & Science, is grateful to Kozyra for his gift.  It will have a direct impact on student learning and public events.  “Students use the high bay for large scale projects and is probably one of the most utilized venues on campus for public events such recruiting and graduation,” Kuleck said.  “This is the first of many changes planned for this space in the coming months and years.”

Plans are underway for construction of the Center for Automotive Systems Engineering Education (CASEE) scheduled to begin later this year.
