SWOSU physics alumni, students, faculty, administrators, family and friends are invited to attend the 28th annual Physics Spring Banquet this Saturday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in the East Ballroom of the SWOSU Memorial Student Center.

This year's speaker is alumnus Joe Beisel, a 1997 physics engineering graduate. He spent several years in Malawi working for the African Bible College in Lilongwe.  While there, he was involved in civil engineering work including construction of hospitals, schools, staff houses, and one radio station.  Upon returning to the United States, Beisel returned to graduate school where he studied solid mechanics, elasticity, and instrumentation at the Web Handling Research Center in Stillwater and received his doctorate in 2006. 

Beisel works for Halliburton at the Duncan Technology Center, where his work focuses on Finite Element Analysis, modeling, instrumentation and data analysis.  His accomplishments include conference presentations, journal articles, and pending patents.

Tickets are $12 per person and may be paid for at the door.  However, banquet organizers need a head count so please call Dr. Terry Goforth at 580.774.3109 or by email at by April 16.
