Alumnus Lee Gatton returns to campus
We are proud to have had Lee Gatton, a 1971 graduate of the electronic engineering technology program, back on campus! Lee was here to give a presentation on healthcare robotics which brings together the worlds of social work, family studies and human services and engineering technology.

Lee is the owner of Gatton Research and Development and was the campus's 2012 Alumni Fellow.

Innovative Manufacturing Club president collaborates with the Technology Student Association
The polytechnic campus's Innovative Manufacturing Club lends a helping hand to the Technology Student Association! 

During the TSA's state of Kansas competition a few weeks ago, the club was challenged by TSA advisor, Carolyn Cole, to design and create a 3D printed object with the TSA logo on it. In less than one hour, club president Tyler Montgomery finished a fun 3D printed keychain (in purple, of course). This is another example of how our students' education is practiced in the professional world.

Pictured left to right: Dustin Keiswetter, engineering technician at K-State Polytechnic; Carolyn Cole, Kansas TSA advisor; and Tyler Montgomery, senior, and Innovative Manufacturing Club president.

A high-five is one of the most recognizable ways two people can share excitement or celebrate a job well done. Kansas State Polytechnic's CEO and Dean Verna Fitzsimmons awards her high-five each week to honor faculty, staff and students for their dedication to the university.
High-Five to our polytechnic faculty who attended the Transformative Learning Conference!
A big high-five to the polytechnic faculty and staff who attended this year's Transformative Learning Conference in Oklahoma City as another way to help advance our campus and the education we provide.

Thank you for your dedication to providing the best learning experience for our students and for representing our campus so well!
