The Gordon Tribute is a high-tech interactive archway in the center of campus honoring engineering leaders, including its namesake, an innovator and Northeastern benefactor. Located between the Egan Research Center and Snell Engineering Center, the Gordon Archway uses lights and graphics to honor 10 groundbreaking engineers.
Gordon, considered to be the father of the high-speed, analog-to-digital conversions that make much of today’s modern life possible, donated $20 million to Northeastern in 2006 to launch the Gordon Engineering Leadership Program, which seeks to identify and prepare the next generation of engineering leaders. The archway, dedicated to Gordon, aims to inspire even more with the life stories of prolific engineering pioneers and leaders. The custom 8” diameter x 60” long stainless steel bollards form a barrier that is both sturdy and attractive, increasing safety without sacrificing aesthetics.
