The Way forward for Engineering Schooling: Classes from 20 Years of Experimentation at Olin Faculty

The New Horizons in Engineering Distinguished Lectureship Collection at Clarkson College is proud to announce that Dr. Richard Miller will communicate on September 20 at 8 pm in BH Snell Corridor 213 and through Zoom

In an effort to remake engineering training, beginning in 1999, Olin Faculty, with $460 million of assist from the F.W. Olin Basis, started an effort to start out over in engineering training. What does it imply to be an engineer within the twenty first Century? What does it imply to be “educated” at the moment? 

With the mission to develop into an vital and fixed contributor to engineering training in America and all through the world, Olin has now influenced greater than 800 universities from greater than 50 nations within the final 10 years and was recognized in 2018 within the prime 2 engineering program on the earth (in two classes) in a world benchmark examine printed by MIT.  This was achieved by making a tradition of daring experimentation and collaboration: no educational departments or tenure, and a philosophy that the whole lot has an “expiration date.”

The common Olin graduate at the moment has accomplished greater than 20 design-build group tasks and explored beginning a enterprise. Reflecting again after 20+ years, we now notice that the observations and insights obtained should not restricted to engineering. They apply to all types of training. This discuss will replicate on classes realized that time the way in which for the way forward for undergraduate training in each self-discipline.   

Richard Ok. Miller was appointed President and the primary worker of Olin Faculty of Engineering in 1999; in June 2020 and have become President Emeritus and Professor of Mechanical Engineering; He then served because the Jerome C. Hunsaker Visiting Professor of Aerospace Programs at MIT (2020-2021). In 2017, he co-founded the Coalition for Life-Transformative Schooling the place he continues to function Chair of the Steering Committee.  Beforehand, he served as Dean of Engineering on the College of Iowa, Affiliate Dean of Engineering at USC in Los Angeles, and assistant professor of engineering at UCSB in Santa Barbara. 

Miller is an elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences (AAAS) and the Nationwide Academy of Inventors (NAI), and a Member of the Nationwide Academy of Engineering (NAE).   

He’s a co-recipient of the NAE Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Know-how Schooling twice—in 2013 and once more in 2022—the one individual to win this award greater than as soon as.  He additionally acquired the 2017 Brock Worldwide Prize in Schooling and the 2011 Marlowe Award from the American Society for Engineering Schooling.  In 2014, he acquired the Caltech Distinguished Alumni Award and in 2002 he acquired the Distinguished Engineering Alumnus Award from the College of California at Davis.

Miller has served as Chair of the Board on Greater Schooling and Workforce of the US Nationwide Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medication and as Chair of the Engineering Advisory Committee of the US Nationwide Science Basis.  He has additionally served on advisory boards and committees for Harvard College, Stanford College, the U.S. Navy Academy at West Level, the Lemelson Basis, the Asian College for Ladies, the Milken Middle for the Development of the American Dream, and others. As well as, he has served as a guide to the World Financial institution within the institution of recent universities in growing nations. Miller earned his B.S on the College of California, Davis, his S.M. from MIT, and Ph.D. from the California Institute of Know-how.

Dr. Miller would be the twentieth Distinguished Lecturer in Clarkson College’s New Horizons in Engineering collection, which is devoted to bettering the understanding of vital points dealing with engineering and society within the 21 Century.
