From 3D technology to mixed reality, energy sustainability to national security, our distinguished alumni are global leaders in technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. They are mentors, inventors, and investors who haven’t just turned heads – they have changed the world! Join us for a chat with the 2023 class of Alumni Award for Distinguished Service Recipients and hear about their Grainger Engineering experiences, lessons learned from their careers, and advice for current students.
This year's event will be held in a hybrid format. We welcome you to join us in person at the NCSA Auditorium or virtually via Zoom. Please click here to register for the event.
