Eight mechanical engineering students...Mechanical Engineering, graduates

CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University will award diplomas to eight students who will have the distinction of being the first EWU graduates to earn degrees in mechanical engineering during the 2012 Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, June 16, 2012, at Roos Field.

The mechanical engineering curriculum, first offered in the fall quarter of 2009, builds on concepts studied in physics, math and the sciences. It prepares students to be knowledgeable in their fields and effective problem solvers.

In addition to the mechanical engineering degree, Eastern also offers a degree in electrical engineering, making it unique among the regional universities in the state of Washington.  

"This is really a monumental achievement for the university," said Judd Case, dean of the College of Science, Health and Engineering. "This new degree opportunity represents EWU's commitment to student success, as highly-qualified graduates are prepared to enter a high-demand field."

Case also points out the ME graduates reflect Eastern's commitment to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. Such STEM-related fields are considered to be a driving force in economic recovery and global competitiveness, which is why the state has directed higher education institutions to expand enrolments STEM programs

The ME graduates are:

  • Tomas Armenta
  • Scott Brandon
  • Joseph Cluever
  • Aron Eaton
  • Timothy McDowell
  • Kyle Murray
  • Brandt Porter
  • Saleh Tafesh

This year, commencement ceremonies are divided by colleges, and the eight mechanical engineering graduates will receive their degrees from Eastern during the 2 p.m. ceremony.
