Milton E. Mohr Awards Program
The Milton E.

He was President and CEO of Quotron Systems, formerly Bunker Ramo Corporation, an electrical engineer, corporate executive and philanthropist. He was named America's Most Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer in 1948. The Milton E.

The scholarships and fellowships are made possible through an endowment to the University Foundation.
