VANCOUVER RESIDENT HONORED AS 1999 SDSM& T OUTSTANDING RECENT GRADUATE IN ELECTRICAL & COMPUTER ENGINEERING
Vancouver resident Scott Bracken was recently honored by the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) as the 1999 SDSM& T Outstanding Recent Graduate in Electrical & Computer Engineering. Bracken currently serves as production engineering manager for Hewlett- Packard.
After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from SDSM& T in 1988, Bracken started his career at Rockwell- Collins Commercial Avionics where he developed several test plans for new Boeing 777 avionics products. The DFT guidelines that he published were recognized within the company as the standard for avionics designs resulting in the receipt of Rockwell’s highest engineering honor.
Bracken then took these skills into the high volume consumer electronics business at Hewlett- Packard’s ink jet printer products division. The DFM guidelines that he developed are now used for all new printer products in the division. He was named the lead engineer responsible for the cross- functional R& D/ Manufacturing team that was introducing the product that is the highest volume product in the division. His leadership in the creation of the SPARK program in Iowa is his most notable volunteer achievement.
SDSM& T officials established the Outstanding Recent Graduate Award to recognize alumni for their professional achievements and civic involvement within ten years of graduation. Scott and his wife, Lori, have four children – Hailee, Kelsey, Jenna and Cody.
