Ramesh to Chair Mechanical Engineering for Part-Time Programs
Kaliat T. Ramesh, a professor of mechanical engineering in the Whiting School of Engineering, has been appointed program chair for Mechanical Engineering in the university's part-time Engineering Programs for Professionals.
Ramesh has been an instructor in EPP's Mechanical Engineering program and taught the first online course — Tribology — offered by EPP.
"Overall, mechanical engineering is the largest engineering discipline, and it is the one leading the rapid change in engineering, especially with respect to nanotechnology and health care," Ramesh said. "Most of our students in the program come from industry, and some from government agencies. I want to draw in those students who want professional advancement, exposure to the cutting edge in this field and a fresh way of thinking."
