Emerson Inducted into Hall of Fame

ST. LOUIS — Emerson Climate Technologies was recently inducted into the University of Dayton’s School of Engineering Hall of Fame. Emerson was part of the inaugural class of honorees, who were recognized in February during the engineering school’s 100-year anniversary celebration.

Emerson’s support of the University of Dayton spans more than a decade and includes a long legacy of contributing to educational and community programs including the Minority Engineering Program, the Design and Manufacturing Clinic, and the Innovation Center.

“Our business is built on a passion and commitment to lead, and the University of Dayton shares our values,” som the strengthening of our community. We are honored to be recognized by the University of Dayton in the inaugural class of their engineering hall of fame.”

Ed Purvis, executive vice president, Emerson Climate Technologies, gives a speech after the company’s induction into the University of Dayton’s School of Engineering Hall of Fame.

In 2007, Emerson Climate Technologies, and its parent company, Emerson, made a $1 million investment in the School of Engineering’s Product Innovation Laboratory to provide opportunities for engineering and business students to work on new product development, potentially spurring the creation of new businesses. Students participating in the program are exposed to the various facets of the engineering field, including technical product issues, intellectual property potential, market evaluation, and business plan development.

“Emerson’s support of our Innovation Center has helped it become ‘best in class,’ according to a national foundation,” said Tony Saliba, dean of the School of Engineering. “Not only has Emerson lent its financial support to helping the School of Engineering develop entrepreneurial engineers, it has provided support to our students by providing jobs and serving as advisers and mentors.”
