Statues on the North and John Bardeen Engineering Quad

The Statue: "Quintessential Engineer"

"The Quintessential Engineer," located outside the Micro + Nanotechnology Laboratory on the north Engineering Quad, is the product of a campaign started four years ago by Engineering alumna Sakshi Srivastava. The statue was created by Chicago sculptor Julie Rotblatt-Amrany and was financed by Texas Instruments (TI) to hopefully inspire both current and future female engineering students at the University. More information about the sculpture can be found through the resources below.
