Tau Beta Pi is excited to announce that Don McMillan, PA A ’81, will present his “Engineer@Heart” show for attendees on Thursday night at the 109th Convention of Tau Beta Pi in Spokane, WA. McMillan is an engineer and comedian with Technically Funny, Inc. He joined Tau Beta Pi as an undergraduate at Lehigh University. He then went on to get a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
Afterwards, he spent more than 10 years working in Silicon Valley as a chip designer and manager. In 1993, he won the $100,000 Star Search Comedy Grand Champion competition and decided to become a stand-up comedian. “But in his heart he’s still – and always will be – an Engineer.” His “Engineer@Heart” show celebrates the ways engineers think, live, and interact. Using solid engineering methods to generate comedy, Don has filled his show with graphs, charts, formulas, and complex robust models. Through an Engineer’s eye, Don addresses everything from relationships to statistical analysis to shopping.
