History of E-Expo
Engineering Exposition (E-Expo), formerly known as E-Days, is an annual event sponsored by the Speed School Student Council (SSSC). This event is a long-standing tradition that dates back to 1970’s. E-Expo aims to expose local K-12 students to STEM fields, to showcase student competitions and research, and to promote the University of Louisville, the J.B. Speed School of Engineering (SSoE), and the Speed School Student Council to the local community. In past years, the event has included networking opportunities, corporate representation, departmental showcases, STEM demonstrations, and competitions for K-12, undergraduate, and graduate students. Each year, a new theme is selected based on the keynote speaker’s industry focus/area of interest. Examples of previous themes include 3D printing, automotive, sustainable energy, and transportation.
I have three degrees from UofL: Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Applied Math (1984), Master of Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering Math (1985), and Master of Science in Physiology and Biophysics (2009). I was an Operations Analyst at McDonnell Douglas / Boeing for 15 years, working on a variety of projects, including the F/A-18E/F and JDAM development programs. After leaving Boeing, I spent two years as a stay at home dad. Then took a job as the operations manager of the Paris Simulation Center at the UofL Medical School, where over seven years I grew that lab to one of the busiest patient simulation centers in the country. I then returned to Boeing again as an Operations Analyst, where I have been for 14 years. I work in a fee-for-service group, which is like an internal consulting position within Boeing. Outside of work, I ride bicycles, putting in about 2000 miles each year, and I volunteer with a group that takes visually impaired children on bike rides using tandem bikes. I also volunteer with a high school robotics team, where I “ask them questions and then don’t answer them.” I also am an avid board gamer, playing with a regular group from work and attending a local annual board game convention.

In order for this event to become a reality, many students, professors, and faculty provide their input, professional hours, and volunteer outside of classes. E-Expo is organized and run by the Speed School Student Council, which is one of the largest and most active student councils of the University of Louisville’s student body.
