Dean, College of Engineering and Computing, Miami University

Miami University, the second oldest public institution in Ohio—and one of the eight Public Ivies— invites applications and nominations for the Dean of Engineering and Computing. The University seeks a strategic and innovative leader to expand a thriving college and sharpen its strategic focus by capitalizing on its current strengths and identifying new areas of potential synergy and innovation. In strengthening the college, the Dean will further Miami’s image and standing as a nationally recognized, student-centered public research university.

Miami University’s main campus is located in Oxford, Ohio, an attractive small city situated just an hour outside of Cincinnati and Dayton. Miami’s regional campuses are in Hamilton and Middletown, respectively located 13 and 22 miles from Oxford. The College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) enrolls over 2,245 undergraduate and 66 graduate students, with about 91 faculty members and 28 staff members. The College is comprised of four academic departments: Chemical, Paper, and Biomedical Engineering; Computer Science and Software Engineering; Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. CEC prepares students for their chosen careers by integrating Miami University’s strength in liberal arts education with fundamental engineering and computing technical concepts, modern technologies, and scholarly research taught by renowned faculty in CEC’s classroom and labs. CEC educates engineers and computer scientists to be prepared to address both the technical and social dimensions of engineering work; what CEC calls Socially Engaged Engineering and Computing (SEEC).

Reporting directly to Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs, the Dean is the chief administrative, academic, and budgetary officer for the College of Engineering and Computing. The Dean serves as a role model of integrity, and a champion of diversity and inclusion for the College’s faculty and is accessible to both undergraduate and graduate students. The Dean collaborates closely with other deans and others across the University, the region, the nation, and the globe to coordinate academic programs, interdisciplinary initiatives, and traditional and cross-disciplinary scholarship.  The Dean will also work collaboratively with the College to advance, create, and implement programs consonant with the University's strategic plan launched in July 2019.

The Dean will hold an earned doctorate in one of the College of Engineering and Computing’s general fields of study and have achieved a distinguished record of scholarly, professional achievement for appointment as a Full Professor in one of the programs within the College.
