Family honors longtime ceramic engineering department head with naming

Room 3010 in Engineering Building I on NC State’s Centennial Campus is occupied by the head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). Dr. Donald Brenner, Kobe Steel Distinguished Professor and MSE department head, is the current occupant. Gerald Kriegel hopes that whomever sits in that office adopts an open-door policy for students. After all, that’s what his father did.
