For more nearly 30 years, Winona State University has been educating and graduating students from the only undergraduate engineering program in the United States devoted to the study of composite materials. Since 1947, when Ben and Rudy Miller began mixing high-quality cotton fibers with plastic resins, composites material engineering has been a recognized knowledge cluster in Southeastern Minnesota. The Miller Brothers early development efforts inspired numerous companies and spin-offs, building on their successes. The WSU-Miller Brothers School of Engineering boasts about their graduates now applying their acquired knowledge throughout North America and around the globe.
