Ian Young (B.S. Physics)


I received my B.S. in Physics under Professor Jim Kakalios, after graduation I worked at Dayton Die Cushions.

Now I am a Mechanical Design engineer in Eden Prairie. I'm a rock climber, Olympic-style weightlifter and an avid reader. I work at a small engineering firm making industrial machinery for metal stamping processes. I remember fondly working on my MSPII experiment with liquid helium. My favorite classes were MSPII, Quantum I with Kakalios and Quantum II with Professor Dan Cronin-Hennessy
