Lennon Rodgers

Director, Engineering Design Innovation Lab | University of Wisconsin | Class of 2003

Given where he ended up, it’s only fitting that Lennon Rodgers put in as many hours as he did at the Grainger Engineering Library — “either completing assignments or catching up on sleep before exams.

“The quality of the library and engineering campus in general inspired me to work hard and learn a lot in short period of time,” says Rodgers (BS ’03, mechanical engineering).

“To come full circle back to a Grainger-donated facility, I recently joined the College of Engineering at UW-Madison as the director of the Grainger Engineering Design Innovation Lab, where we help provide interdisciplinary, hands-on design and prototyping experiences to engineering students.”
