A Day of Revolutionary Thinking

Rutgers marked its 250th birthday with A Day of Revolutionary Thinking, a universitywide showcase of alumni expertise and knowledge. Accomplished graduates—designated as Rutgers 250 Fellows—returned to campus to present new ideas, discoveries, and practices that are shaping our world today. Topics included: Fighting Ebola on the Frontlines, From Black Holes to Dark Energy, Rock 'n' Roll and Rutgers, The Magic and Science of Cooking, and many more. Through these lectures and presentations, Rutgers graduates are passing wisdom to the next generation of Rutgers students.

Five School of Engineering alumni were selected to participate as fellows: Michelle Dickinson (MSE), Raymond Iezzi, Jr. (BME), Thomas A. Kennedy (ECE), Edgar Sandoval (ISE), and Gene Sarganese (MAE). 

Presentations were open to the university community and the public.
