Alfred To Receive $10 Million From Kyocera For School Of Engineering

Kyocera Corp. will give $10 million to Alfred University to endow its School of Engineering. The university intends to rename the school the Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, in honor of Dr. Kazuo Inamori, the founder and chairman emeritus of Kyocera. With the income from the endowment, Alfred will hire four additional faculty members specializing in the processing of advanced materials, particularly those for biomedical and photonic applications, to create a fine ceramics/nanotechnology research center. University faculty and students and Kyocera engineers will be linked in ongoing research and technical exchange programs as they develop and explore new applications in advanced materials.
