Godfrey, Kneeland, Jr. (ed.) / The Wisconsin engineer
Volume 59, Number 6 (March 1955)

[Cover] The Wisconsin engineer,   pp. [unnumbered]-4



Robert L. Land, Jr., Class of '51,
speaks from experience when he says,
         U.S. Steel offers thorough training...
         exposes the graduate engineer to many
         interesting phases of the steel industry
ROBERT L. LAND, JR., graduated with a
B.S. in Chemical Engineering in Febru-
ary 1951. He had previously been inter-
viewed by U.S. Steel college recruitment
representatives and had been offered a job.
He began working in the Coke Plant at the
Gary, Indiana Works of U.S. Steel immedi-
ately after graduation.
  After extensive training and several pro-
motions, Bob was made General Heater
Foreman on November 1, 1954. This ex-
ceedingly important job makes him re-
sponsible for the proper heating and the
quality of all coke produced at the Gary
Works-the second largest coke plant in
the world-with 16 batteries of coke ovens
producing 15,000 tons daily. He has a crew
of 60 and 8 foremen working under him.
  Bob feels that U.S. Steel really gets the
young graduate engineer off to a good start
with a well-planned and complete training
program. He says, "U.S. Steel offers the
graduate engineer an excellent chance to
work in a number of different fields."
This enables the graduate who has not
decided on his exact field to look around
the big steel industry from within and to
find the type of work that suits him best.
After a man is given the chance to really
find himself and has been adequately
trained, "U.S. Steel offers security and an
unlimited possibility of advancement pro-
viding the engineer shows initiative and
the willingness to work."
