For alumnus Dennis Murphy (BS, Civil Engineering, '94), the concrete laboratory is what made his education come alive. Like many Wildcats, the CEO of Hayden Homes points to his outstanding faculty and the University's commitment to project-based learning as the keys to his success. That's why he teamed up with industry partners to help today's students engineer their dreams!
