The Society of Military Engineers Greater Kansas City Post, along with the School of Computing and Engineering at University of Missouri – Kansas City, hosted the 2nd Annual Industry Day event. The event was a huge success for the Post. It exceeded the 2009 event with over 250 representatives from the architectural/engineering, construction, US Army Corps of Engineers, and students from across the country in attendance. To thank UMKC and the School of Computing & Engineering, on April 28th, COL Roger Wilson (KC District), Mr. Chris Prinslow (KC District), Mr. Jason Meyers (Burns & McDonnell) presented a check to the UMKC’s SCE “Dean’s Discretionary Fund”. Accepting the check for UMKC included Dr. Kevin Truman (Dean of SCE), Dr. Appie van de Liefvoort, (Chair of Computer Science Electrical Engineering Department), Ms. Megan Foster, President of SAME Student Chapter and Dr. Mark McClernon (Chair of Civil and Mechanical Engineering Department). The contribution to the School of Computing & Engineering will be used to procure additional equipment for the school’s civil engineering laboratory. The post will begin planning for next year’s event in the near future. We’re looking forward to another successful event in Jan 2011!
