Dean’s Message

Dr. Daniel J. Pack

Greetings from the beautiful campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga,

The college is in full swing of the Spring semester with accomplishments of students and faculty (and alumni) abounding.  In this edition of the eNews, you will find stories about outstanding work of our students in and out of classroom, a national recognition of applied research received by Computer Scientist Dr. Dalei Wu, new college-wide STEM initiatives, and an accomplished college alumnus.

You will also find featured stories of Dr. Ofoli, a beloved electrical engineering professor and Kathryn Rouse, an undergraduate student leader in the college.  Stories of new applied research projects performed by students and faculty in the college in partnership with Baylor School and the university, and the inspirational life of Mr. James W. Rogers, whose legacy will continue to live on in the lives of student recipients of scholarships named after him, will warm your heart.

The students, staff, and faculty of the college are blessed with so many opportunities to learn, grow, and excel.  We are also fortunate to have accomplished and supportive alumni and friends.  Together, we can and will accomplish much.

Finally, I invite you to the inaugural Technology Symposium to be held in the University Center at UTC on Friday, 20 April.   The Symposium will showcase innovative undergraduate and graduate student and faculty applied research projects, conducted across multiple disciplines including civil, chemical, electrical, mechanical engineering, engineering technology management, and computer science.  The event is free and open to the public. For more information about the Symposium, please contact Dr. Li Yang, Assistant Dean at  I hope to see you at the event.
