On Friday, April 30, 2010, family, friends, colleagues, and classmates of Thomas W. Powell '62 gathered to watch as he christened the Powell Marine Engineering Complex of the Mitchell Campus of Texas A&M University at Galveston. The Powell Marine Engineering Complex is the center of activity for Texas A&M University at Galveston’s two engineering programs – Marine Engineering Technology and Maritime Systems Engineering. This 55,509 square foot complex provides classrooms, offices, and laboratories for these programs.
A long-time supporter of Texas A&M, Mr. Powell established the Thomas W. Powell ’62 Chair in Engineering and Technology in 2007.
