Industry Recognition for Engineering Alumnus

Manufacturing Engineering magazine has named Lee College of Engineering alumnus Chris Tyler as one of its "30 under 30" industry professionals who has demonstrated "exceptional talent and leadership in science, technology, engineering or mathematics, which are the essential underpinnings of manufacturing."

Tyler, who earned a doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University in May, accepted a position with Boeing in St. Louis to continue his research on difficult-to-machine materials, according to the article.

The magazine pointed out that Tyler’s research into the creation of a database that contains ideal conditions for milling and turning based upon type of material, tool geometry and tool wear has earned high praise in the manufacturing industry.
