A Message From the Dean

Welcome to the 2012-2013 edition of the College of Engineering’s Faculty Directory. I am honored

to present the distinguished individuals who carry on the teaching and research missions of

the college. We look to them to continue the valuable work of educating our country’s future

engineers and pioneering research activities, methods and products that will keep abreast of

technology and bring about added quality of life for our citizens.

The mission of the UT College of Engineering is:

Mission Statement

• To provide high quality education in the major engineering disciplines from the undergraduate

through doctoral levels through a creative balance of academic, professional and

extracurricular programs;

• To foster and maintain mutually beneficial partnerships with our alumni, friends, industry

and local, state and federal governments through public services assistance and collaborative

research; and

• To be a major contributor to our nation’s technology base through scholarship and research.

The Center for Intelligent Systems and Machine Learning (CISML) is a collaboration

of faculty from three colleges and five academic departments at the University

of Tennessee (UT) and is part of the College of Engineering on the Knoxville campus.

Beginning as a simple faculty initiative to create a unified curricula, CISML evolved

(in October 2010) into an official UT research center that studies the theory and application

of intelligent systems and machine learning. In addition to UT faculty, the

center’s affiliated research staff is comprised of experts from Oak Ridge National

Laboratory (ORNL).

CISML’s focus is on designing computer-based systems that exhibit intelligent behavior,

operate autonomously, and adapt to environmental changes. Examples of the

diverse research activities in this area include pattern recognition, robotics, artificial

intelligence, biologically-inspired cognitive architectures, bioinformatics, and data

mining, to name a few.

About the Center:

The Center for Materials Processing (CMP) was initiated as a Center of Excellence in

1985 through the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. The CMP’s mission is to

foster and promote research on materials with the objective of providing technology

that can be the starting point for new product development or provide solutions to

problems related to the performance of materials that will improve industrial competitiveness.

The mission is achieved by support of interdisciplinary research in departments

across the campus. CMP funds are matched by support from industry and

governmental agencies and are primarily used to support students or for the purchase

or upgrade of equipment. Industrial support is provided through CMP memberships,

research contracts, and gifts.

Materials of interest include materials used in advance energy systems, including

materials found as components in the solar and nuclear industries and materials used

in high performance applications including materials found as components in the

aerospace and refractories industries. Biomaterials are also a focal point of many of

the researchers associated with the CMP.

In addition to supporting graduate fellowships, the CMP encourages and supports a

variety of research experiences for undergraduate students.

About the Center:

The Center for Transportation Research (CTR) was created in 1970 to foster and facilitate

interdisciplinary research, public service and outreach in the field of transportation.

It began operating full-time in 1972 and since then has contributed greatly to the

overall research program of the university. The center is a university-level organization

administratively positioned within the College of Engineering. The center’s multidisciplinary

staff includes approximately 100 full-time researchers and technicians

augmented with numerous faculty and students.

The center has three goals. The first is to conduct a program of research in transportation

that is recognized for its excellence, comprehensiveness, innovation, productivity

and national leadership. The second is to develop and sustain the technical expertise

for high quality transportation research by the faculty and students within the various

departments and colleges of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. The third goal is

to serve the transportation research, service and training needs of state and local government,

business and industry in Tennessee, the southeast region and the nation.
