EKU's Department of Applied Engineering and Technology, along with the School of Applied Arts and Technology, is pleased to announce that Mr. Mark Klee has been selected as their departmental distinguished alum for 2013.

Mr. Klee was honored during a presentation on Friday, April 5, 2013, at the annual College of Business and Technology College to Careers senior recognition luncheon.

The honor is reserved for special alumni who have distinguished themselves in their professions through excellence, dedication, and service.

Mr. Klee graduated in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology and went on to earn a Masters in Industrial Technology from Purdue. 

Since that time, he has taught, published, and quickly advanced in his career field.  Mr. Klee is currently the Manager of Powertrain Production Engineering-Engine Group, for Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing in Erlanger, Ky.  Since joining Toyota in 1994, he has become well acquainted with Toyota production methods – even returning to his alma mater to deliver lecture and lab based training to EKU students.

Among his significant achievements are planning and installation of multiple machining and assembly lines, development of KPIs for human development, as well as personal development and self-reflection.

Congratulations Mr. Klee on being selected as the 2013 Distinguished Alum representing the Department of Applied Engineering and Technology.
