A Triton Feast

UCSD alumnus William J. Proffer ('76, '78 M.S. Applied Mechanics), center, hosted a Triton Table event at Muir College.

Jacobs School of Engineering alumnus William J. Proffer ('76, '78 M.S. Applied Mechanics) recently came to campus to host a "Triton Tables" event for a group of current engineering students. Triton Tables events connect established alumni to students and recent graduates with the aim of strengthening the Jacobs School network of alumni, and to encourage a tradition of support among alumni. At the event, Proffer, who works for SAIC, was joined by fellow UCSD alumni Richard Kasbo ('87 M.S. Electrical Engineering) and Priyank Saxena ('07 Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering). "We felt like we all were able to get a one-on-one connection with industry," said Triton Tables attendee Osayi Edigin, president of the National Society of Black Engineers at the Jacobs School.
