Moving Forward with Engineering

with one comment

The Otterbein Senate voted on November 20 to approve the creation of a new program in Systems Engineering.  This is an innovative, integrated engineering curriculum based on foundational courses in mechanical and electrical engineering, and advanced courses on industrial and complex systems analysis.  Profs. Dave Robertson and Aaron Reinhard of the Physics Department were leaders in this development, and Reinhard has assumed the position of Interim Director of Systems Engineering.  A national search is underway to hire a full-time Director, who will start this coming August.  The goal is to admit our first cohort of students in Fall 2015.

The 3+2 Cooperative Engineering program run by the Physics Department will continue, allowing students the opportunity to pursue areas of engineering other than systems.
