DEAN'S NOTE

Dear Lehigh Engineers,

It’s hard to believe that Commencement 2016 has come and gone, and with it another academic year has drawn to a close. We wish our new graduates the very best as they wield their energy, enthusiasm, and education beyond our campus walls. I've been fortunate to meet many of them at Honors Convocation and other end-of-year events around campus; being surrounded by this caliber of capable, intelligent young minds certainly makes one optimistic for our future.

DEAN'S NOTE

Dear Lehigh Engineers,

It’s hard to believe that Commencement 2016 has come and gone, and with it another academic year has drawn to a close. We wish our new graduates the very best as they wield their energy, enthusiasm, and education beyond our campus walls. I've been fortunate to meet many of them at Honors Convocation and other end-of-year events around campus; being surrounded by this caliber of capable, intelligent young minds certainly makes one optimistic for our future.

And to our returning students: we implore you to use the summer to recharge your intellectual batteries – September's round of "4 o'clock exams" will be upon us before you know it!

As the University continues the search for the next engineering dean, I'm pleased to be able to support the transition by continuing in an interim dean capacity. It is an honor and a pleasure to have served in this role over the past year, and I look forward to further collaboration with our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends in this regard.

I'm delighted to announce that Wojciech Z. Misiolek, Loewy Chair in Materials Forming and Processing and director of the newly-launched Loewy Institute at Lehigh University, has been named chair of the University's department of materials science and engineering, effective July 1. Wojciech, a recognized global leader in advanced materials and processing research, succeeds Helen Chan, New Jersey Zinc Professor of materials science and engineering. Helen was recently awarded a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program grant to teach in Austria throughout the 2016-2017 academic year. On behalf of the entire College, I thank Helen for her years of service to the department, and wish her great success in her new international endeavor.

Keep an eye out this summer for the Lehigh student team participating in SpaceX’s highly-anticipated Hyperloop Pod Competition. Led by engineers but comprised of students from all three of Lehigh's undergraduate colleges, our team placed 10th -- out of an initial field of 1,200 entrants -- in the qualifying round. On June 30, they will vie against the 21 other finalist teams from places like MIT, Delft University of Technology, University of Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, UC Irvine, and other top-tier engineering schools. Go Lehigh Hyperloop!

Please drop me a line with your feedback and, as always, thank you for your support of Lehigh Engineering.

Sincerely,
dean's signature
John P. Coulter
Interim Dean
