Professor Swami Karunamoorthy and Professor Terrence Kelly Appointed Department Chairs
Professor Swami Karunamoorthy has been appointed chair of the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and Professor Terrence Kelly has been appointed chair of the Department of Aviation Science; both appointments are effective July 1, 2010. As all of you know, Dr. Swami has been a long-term member of the Parks Community. Therefore, it is no surprise that he was recommended by the Department faculty. He has great enthusiasm for mentoring tenure-track faculty, building Parks graduate programs and strengthening assessment efforts. Professor Kelly has been in the interim chair position since last fall and has done a very good job of advancing the departmental priorities. Moving forward, he is excited about the graduate program, renewal of AABI accreditation, and development of both undergraduate programs.
