Matthew Mench has been selected to serve as the next dean and Wayne T. Davis Dean’s Chair of the college beginning July 1.
“Dr. Terpenny’s expertise in engineering design and smart manufacturing will be invaluable to the college and the university as we continue to emerge as a leader in the fields of advanced materials and high-performance computing,” said Provost David Manderscheid. “With her track record as an academic leader who can foster collaboration, advance research, and build on the college’s already excellent reputation, I am certain that Dr. Terpenny will be a great asset to the university.”
The search for the new dean for the Tickle College of Engineering has been suspended and will restart in the fall.
“It’s an honor for me to lead the college during this time of transition,” said Parker, a professor in the Min H. Kao Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. “I look forward to working with TCE colleagues to maintain the momentum of the college until Dean Davis’s successor arrives.”
