Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering

Calling today’s celebration a “momentous occasion in the nearly 170-year-history of Alfred University,” Robert R. McComsey, chairman of the AU Board of Trustees, officially renamed the School of Engineering at Alfred University in honor of Dr. Kazuo Inamori, founder and chairman emeritus of Kyocera Corporation.

The decision to name the school for Dr. Inamori arose from a $10 million gift the Kyocera Corporation in Dr. Inamori’s honor. The gift will create an endowment for the School of Engineering that will be used to support four faculty members in nanotechnology research. Additionally, the University will create a fine ceramic materials museum to showcase the advances made by Kyocera Corporation in the field of materials.
