Engineering professor | Carnegie Mellon | Class of 2004

For Rahul Panat’s money, you can’t beat Talbot Laboratory — “and the study hall on the second floor of that building."

"I used to meet with other graduate students and solve problems for advanced mechanics courses," says the Carnegie Mellon engineering professor, a member of the UI's Class of 2004.

“I can associate this place with the most pleasant memories of being exposed to beautiful math theories that explained the working on engineering systems.

“I also remember the renovation of the Quad and Green Street in early 2000s that transformed these areas with opening up of many new eating options.”
