On Our Camera Roll: Our History

A new celebration wall of notable Penn Engineering alumni adorns the West Entrance of the Towne Building.

Penn Engineering continues to enhance physical spaces in the School to ensure that they reflect a more balanced and truthful picture of the past while also inspiring and empowering future innovators, leaders and problem-solvers. In breaking down gatekeeping-based measurements of scientific impact and significance, the School can honor its history while acknowledging that there is still more to be done.

The Ruia Foundations Timeline

Penn Engineering is grateful to Atul A. Ruia (EAS’93, W’93, PAR’25, PAR’27) and Gayatri Ruia (PAR’25, PAR’27) for their generous support of a new historical timeline display in the Moore Building. This installation celebrates the achievements of the past while the School works toward attracting a more diverse, inclusive student body that reflects — and will help lead — a diverse world.
