All Poly Alumni are invited to join us for a casual after work reception with Department Head and Computer Science & Engineering Professor Keith Ross.  Poly alumnus Allan Kleinman ('66 EE) and his wife, Joan, will be hosting the event at their beach house in La Jolla.

 

Keith Ross, the Leonard J.
