Massachusetts State Representative Vitolo earned Bachelor’s Degrees of Science in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, and Economics. His aptitude for solving mathematical applications and drive to address community problems led him towards operation research. At Boston University, he connected the dots. In 2011, he graduated from BU with a Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering and the know-how to make a difference in the world.

The College of Engineering honored three alumni for their career achievements and for the support they have given their alma mater and community during BU Alumni Weekend ceremony in September. After a welcoming address from Dean Kenneth R. Lutchen, two current students introduced the three 2018 honorees – Larry Leszczynski (BME ’85, ’87), Anne Hines (BME ’85) and Tonie Leatherberry (ME ’85).
MSE alum Roa Mulpuri (’92, ’96), CEO of View, has created dynamic window glass that can lower a building’s energy consumption by about 20 percent, and can be controlled by an app.
When engineering students learn early how to design a solution—whether it’s a new medical device or a streamlined warehouse design—and take into account factors like sustainability and commercialization, solutions can become innovations.
There can be a wide gap between new medical devices doctors need and the ones companies decide to make. This disconnect can leave doctors accepting something like a surgical instrument that hasn’t been redesigned in half century even when it can cause medical problems. Now, what started out as a year-long practical course for master’s students in Boston University’s biomedical engineering department, has turned into a way to help close that gap.
