College of Engineering & Science - Louisiana Tech University

Integrated Engineering and Science Education Building

Dear Dean Hegab:

I am a 1976 Electrical Engineering graduate of Louisiana Tech. Thanks to the outstanding education I received at Tech, I have been fortunate to have a very successful career in the oil and gas industry. I believe this University produces some of the finest engineers and scientists in the country at the lowest possible cost. As a member of the Engineering and Science Foundation Board, I have seen first-hand how the integrated curriculum pioneered by the College of Engineering and Science is producing students that are well trained and capable of immediately working collaboratively in diverse project teams.

Because of the success of the College, we are attracting more and more high-quality students. Our facilities, however, are older, undersized and not optimal for the integrated teaching programs. It is critical in this time of strained state budgets that alumni and friends pitch in to make this critically needed building a reality. I have personally donated $500,000 toward the building.

Thank you for your support of Louisiana Tech.
