David Penwell graduated from KSU in 1997 with a degree in Physics. After leaving KSU he obtained an MS degree at the University of Missouri at Kansas City and went on to work at Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as a systems engineer. Rockwell Collins is a large corporation and David worked in the Government Systems division which produces among other things GPS receivers for the US government and our allies.
David recently contacted us with some opportunities for students with quantitative degrees (obviously this includes physics) at Rockwell Collins. As you might imagine business in the defense sector has been good and many companies need employees.
We appreciate David contacting us and encourage other alumni who know of opportunities for someone with a physics degree to contact us.
