T The department celebrated its 40th and 45th anniversaries the weekend of Engineers’ Day and Homecoming—Oct. 17 and 18—with an open house brunch at the Engineering Centers Building and several other activities. The occasion marked the 40th anniversary of the nuclear engineering undergraduate program and the 45th anniversary of the graduate program. In addition to the brunch, alumni had the opportunity to tour the college's nuclear reactor and department laboratories.
