Eric and Carin Stevens Anderson
Northern Arizona University
Providing students with real-world technology
Eric Anderson, 1981 BSE, and Carin Stevens Anderson, 1982 BSE, say they would not be successful in either their business (SEAKR Engineering, Inc.) or their careers as electrical engineers, “if it wasn’t for our time at Northern Arizona University.”
As the top-notch specialists that they are, they saw a critical need in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department for equipment that meets modern workforce standards. Thus, they endowed an equipment fund and took the lead in encouraging other alumni to support the department’s technology needs.
In addition to establishing this fund, they have supported capstone projects, Eric sits on the Electrical Engineering Advisory Board, and he has also served as a judge for the College of Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences annual Research and Design Symposium. According to Dr. David Scott, the Chair of Electrical Engineering, “Alumni like the Andersons inspire future graduates in many ways.”
