Construction Starts on John Tickle

Engineering Building

Construction on the John Tickle Engineering

Building began on July 29, 2011. Messer

Construction is responsible for building the facility

and Grieves and Associates are the architects. The

building is currently projected to be substantially

completed in 20 months, by the end of March

2013, which will enable academic activities to

begin in the building by the Fall 2013 semester.

Associate Dean Bill Dunne was very pleased to

learn about this completion timeline.

“We are fortunate that the construction

contractors, Messer, believe that they can

substantially complete the project four months

sooner for the end of March 2013, because we will

be able to put the building in service one semester

earlier,” Dunne said. “This timeline also provides

a great opportunity for us to feature the building

to our college alumni and friends during events

around the home football games of fall 2013.”

After completion, the building will house

the Department of Civil and Environmental

Engineering on the first four floors and the

Department of Industrial and Information

Engineering on the fifth floor.

Along with the completion of the Min H. Kao

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Building, which is scheduled in September of 2011

with move-in beginning in October, the Tickle

building will provide much-needed expansion

space for the college.

The $23.1 million new Tickle facility is made

possible through major private support from John

Tickle, an industrial engineering alumnus and

the chairman of Strongwell Corporation, and his

wife Ann, and public funding from the State of

Tennessee. Additional gifts from Chad (BS/IE

’70) and Ann Holliday (BS/CCI ’70), Jim Gibson

(BS/IE ‘71) and Eric Zeanah (BS/IE ’84) as well

as from the chancellor’s office have created a true

public/private partnership for the new building.

I am writing this letter the day before the

start of the FY12 fall semester and reflecting

on semesters past. University enrollment has

remained at approximately 27,500 students for

many years. However, our college has grown

significantly in both size and quality. Eight

years ago, engineering students were 8% of

the UTK student population. Three years ago

that figure was 10% and last fall engineering

students comprised about 3,250 students—nearly

12% of the total UTK student population.

Last year’s engineering enrollment included a

30% increase in the freshman class. This year’s

new student enrollment is about the same, so

growth will continue in our sophomore, junior

and senior classes for some time to come. We

also had a 25% increase in the number of Ph.D.

students last fall, an increase that is likely to

be maintained for this new academic year, as

our faculty continue to be very successful in

obtaining external funding.

This week’s freshman engineering students

enter with an average high school GPA of 4.0

and an average math ACT score of 30.5—also

a new high! The growth over the last three

years has occurred in a period when the

university’s budget was reduced by about 30%.

Our growth, in large part, has been sustained by

the diligence, hard work and increased efforts

of our faculty and staff and by the philanthropic

support of friends and alumni.

Those philanthropic efforts have resulted in

the Min Kao and Tickle buildings (for webcam

progress and information visit http://www.

engr.utk.edu/). But beyond those tremendous

gifts are several thousand other individuals

and companies whose combined giving makes

a real difference. Endowments for the Jerry

E. Stoneking engage program enable us

to advance first-year engineering education.

Faculty endowments have given us the ability

Now Available Online!

to recognize exceptional achievement and keep

some of our excellent professors at Tennessee.

Naming rooms in several of our buildings offers

us the opportunity to recognize donors and also

builds departmental endowments.

As I think back on my own education, I

am keenly aware of the faculty and alumni

who provided me the opportunity for higher

education. My undergraduate degree was

financed in part by a four-year Alumni

Scholarship. I still contribute to that university

on an annual basis, because without the

philanthropy of the alumni who created that

scholarship, I would never have been able to

complete my degree. My graduate education was

funded by graduate research assistantships that

were a direct result of faculty efforts in securing

externally funded grants and contracts. Today,

25% of our undergraduate students receive

scholarships funded by friends and alumni and

the majority of our graduate students are on

graduate teaching or research assistantships.

Clearly we, as alumni, are indebted to those

who have come before us and contributed to the

college’s success through support of the college’s

programs.

As I reflect back on what an engineering

education means to those of us fortunate enough

to have had this rigor, I am so grateful for the

generosity of many who make it possible. I am

also challenged by a simple fact–only about 12%

of our College of Engineering alumni give back

to their university on an annual basis and only

40% of those give to one of our college programs.

I issue the challenge to all of our alumni and

friends to help us educate the next generation of

engineering leaders.

2 THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE KNOXVILLE, COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING • www.engr.utk.edu

COE Names Two New Department Heads

Chancellor’s Research Award in 2007, the COE

Research Fellow Award in 2006 and 2009, the

Moses E. and Mayme Brooks Distinguished

Professor Award in 2005, the COE Teaching

Fellow Award in 2005, and the Allen & Hoshall

Engineering Faculty Award in 2002.

Hines’ research areas include applied artificial

intelligence, surveillance and diagnostics,

instrumentation and controls, modeling and

simulation and maintenance and reliability

engineering. He currently serves as the director

of the college’s Reliability and Maintainability

Engineering Program, which offers an

interdepartmental M.S. degree in reliability and

maintainability engineering through a joint

relationship between the engineering college

and the Department of Statistics, Operations and

Management Science.

Hines will succeed H.L. (Lee) Dodds, who will

continue as department head until the vice

chancellor search is successfully concluded. Dodds,

who has been a nuclear engineering faculty

member for thirty-five years—including fifteen

years serving as the nuclear engineering department

head—plans to retire December 31, 2011. The

nuclear engineering department is currently ranked

ninth in the nation by U.S. News and World

Report and has experienced dramatic increases in

enrollment due to renewed interest in the nuclear

engineering profession.

“We have grown extensively in terms of students,

faculty and research over the last five years,” Hines

said. “Our faculty has doubled in size and our

research has tripled. We are currently constrained

in terms of space and support services, but a plan

is in place and we will be receiving 5,000 square

feet of additional space and an additional support

person within the next six months. These resources

will remove the bottleneck and allow us to

continue our growth in academic productivity.”

The NE department has achieved a number

9 national ranking (number 8 among public

universities) from initially being unranked, and

we’ve become the third largest nuclear engineering

program in the U.S.,” Dodds commented.

“We’ve also had a very successful long-term

relationship with ORNL for over 35 years. These

accomplishments are due entirely to the hard work

of our faculty, staff and students.”

Hines said his tenure as Interim Vice Chancellor

for Research has provided opportunities to

collaborate with ORNL, Y-12, EPRI and other

important partners.

“I have learned a great deal about their strategic

goals and see how to more effectively align with

them to grow our research enterprise,” Hines added.

“With limited state resources for near term growth

in terms of faculty and facilities, strengthening

these strategic partnerships enables us to work

continued from page 1

with their scientists and utilize their facilities.

Leading the Top 25 Research initiative has given

me the opportunity to understand the campus

goals and work with faculty and administrators

at all levels to put plans in place to achieve these

goals. This experience of strategic planning and

implementation will be directly applicable to the

departmental level.”

Hines received a B.S. in electrical engineering

from Ohio University, Athens, in 1985, an M.S.

in nuclear engineering and an M.B.A. from Ohio

State University in 1992 and a Ph.D. in nuclear

engineering from Ohio State University in 1994.

Dr. Kurt Sickafus, former Project Leader at Los

Alamos National Laboratory, has been named as

the Alvin and Sally Beaman Professor and Head of

the University of Tennessee (UT) Department of

Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), effective

August 1, 2011.

Sickafus has been associated with Los Alamos

since 1989. He was a part-time faculty member

at the University of New Mexico Extended

University-Los Alamos Center. He has authored

or co-authored more than 200 publications and is

the recipient of numerous awards, including the

Los Alamos National Laboratory Distinguished

Mentor Performance Award and the Los Alamos

National Laboratory 2001 Fellows Prize. He was

named as a Fellow of the Los Alamos National

Laboratory in 2008.

Sickafus received his B.A. in physics and

mathematics from Ohio Wesleyan University in

1978. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in

materials science and engineering from Cornell

University in 1981 and 1985, respectively.

Sickafus is a member of the advisory editorial board

of the Journal of Nuclear Materials.

Research areas for Sickafus include the behavior of

complex oxides in extreme radiation environments.

Sickafus succeeded Dr. George Pharr, a UT

Chancellor’s Professor who served as both MSE

department head and director of the Joint Institute

for Advanced Materials (JIAM). Pharr stepped

down as department head on August 1, 2011, to

take on full-time duties at JIAM, a joint UT-ORNL

institute for advanced materials multidisciplinary

research. Construction on the new JIAM building,

which is being built on the university’s Cherokee

Farm Campus, is expected to commence later in

2011.

The primary role of the JIAM Director is to

bring together UT and ORNL scientists in a

way that fosters advanced materials research in a

multidisciplinary way. We are fortunate to have a

large number of very capable materials researchers

in this area, largely because ORNL is the leading

DOE laboratory for advanced materials research.

At UT, we have many very capable faculty with

materials research expertise distributed through

several engineering departments and in physics

and chemistry,” Pharr said. “We are all waiting for

ground to be broken on the new JIAM Building,

which will be the flagship facility on the new

Cherokee Farm Campus. Plans for the building are

now complete and awaiting approval at the state

fire marshall’s office. Once that approval is in place,

the construction bidding process will begin and

take a couple of months. Hopefully, the building

should be ready for occupancy in mid-to-late 2013.”

Sickafus has high expectations about the potential

to interact with Pharr and other researchers in the

JIAM program.

“I look forward to working closely with George

and to helping position MSE to be a major player

in JIAM,” Sickafus commented. “I hope that MSE

faculty and students will take advantage of this

unique program, especially the new cutting-edge

facilities and equipment that will be located in the

building and will facilitate new interdisciplinary

research collaborations with the other departments

participating in JIAM.”

He is also excited about the opportunity to head up

the MSE department.

The Los Alamos research experience that I had

involved working on fairly large research teams,”

Sickafus said. “I believe this background will help

me to lead large, ‘center-based’ research proposals.

My sense is that university faculty more typically

write small team research proposals. One of my

roles will be to help with the larger, crosscutting

proposals. I also hope to mentor successfully the

next generation of scientists and engineers and

encourage many of them to embark on careers

in disciplines such as materials science. I would

like to recruit many new undergraduate students

into the MSE department, and I want to foster

diversity in our MSE faculty and help make UT

a leading research institute in advanced energy

technologies.”

“I have known Kurt for a long time and am very

happy to see him come to UT after 20+ years of

research and scientific leadership at Los Alamos,”

Pharr said. “I have always felt that Kurt belonged

in academia based on the very instructive and

educational talks he gives at conferences. I expect

under his leadership the growth in research funding

in the MSE department will continue in the near

future, since there have been several important

recent additions to the faculty who are still coming

up to speed on their research programs.”

The MSE department is scheduled to move

to Ferris Hall in 2012 after the Department of

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

moves its laboratories, offices and classrooms from

their current location in that building to the new

Min H. Kao Electrical Engineering and Computer

Science Building in the fall of this year.

“for the application of ultrasonics to condensed

matter physics.”

Keppens’ research focuses on using ultrasound

to understand fundamental properties of

materials. She has co-organized special sessions

at the ASA meetings and given lectures at the

Physical Acoustics Summer School (PASS) the

past few years.

Keppens will be featured in the Journal of the

Acoustical Society of America and honored at a

meeting in San Diego in November of this year.

The ASA is dedicated to increasing and

diffusing the knowledge of acoustics and its

practical applications.

Dr. Benjamin Blalock, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Dr. Benjamin Blalock, associate professor in

the Department of Electrical Engineering and

Computer Science (EECS) said it was the

“twinkle” in his father’s eye that contributed to his

passion for engineering.

Blalock’s father was a University of Tennessee

(UT) engineering professor, so he remembers the

stories his dad would share at the dinner table after

Blalock’s mother asked about his day at work.

“His enthusiasm was contagious,” Blalock said.

“His eyes would light up, and he would describe

his latest research progress or something significant

one of his students had recently achieved.”

His father’s excitement for engineering, coupled

with the enjoyment Blalock received as a teaching

assistant in the undergraduate electronics lab as

a senior electrical engineering student at UT,

opened his eyes to the possibility of becoming an

engineering professor.

“This made me realize that I would truly enjoy

teaching electronics and working with students,”

Blalock said. “Ultimately it confirmed my decision

to pursue a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and a

career in academia.”

Blalock received his B.S. degree in electrical

engineering from UT in 1991, and his M.S. and

Ph.D. degrees, also in electrical engineering, from

the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1993 and

1996, respectively. He then joined the faculty

at Mississippi State University as an assistant

professor in electrical engineering.

What attracted him to UT was its strong legacy in

analog electronics.

“Coming to UT represented a unique challenge

to perpetuate that legacy,” Blalock said. “I was

attracted to the strengths of the EECS department,

both in teaching and research. You always want

to surround yourself with strong individuals, as

they will challenge you to keep growing. And

admittedly, as a UT undergraduate alumnus, I have

a soft spot for UT. I have always appreciated the

foundation my teachers at UT provided.”

Blalock is the director for the Integrated Circuits

and Systems Laboratory (ICASL), where much of

his research takes place.

“My research focus is primarily analog/mixed-signal

integrated circuit design for extreme environments

(both wide temperature and radiation) on CMOS,

SOI CMOS and SiGe BiCMOS technology

platforms; high-temperature/high-voltage gate

drive circuits for power electronics; multi-channel

monolithic instrumentation systems; mixed-signal/

mixed-voltage circuit design for systems-on-a-chip;

and analog circuit techniques for sub 100-nm

CMOS,” Blalock said.

One of the ICASL’s recent accomplishments is

its quad op amp microchip for the NASA and

Dr. Ben Blalock (left) works with students Matt Laurence (center) and Austin Womac (right) in his ICASL laboratory.

Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Mars Science

Laboratory (MSL) Rover. This analog chip has

been flight qualified by the JPL. More than 200

copies of the chip are used throughout the MSL

Rover.

“This long-range rover is due to be launched to

Mars in the near future,” Blalock said. “Developed

within the ICASL, the quad op amp microchip is

capable of enduring daily extreme temperatures

cycling from minus 140 degrees Celsius to 120

degrees Celsius for at least 500 days, which is the

MSL Rover’s mission life target.”

To meet this challenge, two of Blalock’s ICASL

research students, Stephen Terry and Robert

Greenwell, developed new analog design

techniques and strategies to ensure long-term

reliability within extreme environments.

In the classroom, Blalock says he hopes to instill

a strong understanding of fundamental concepts

and principles and sufficient self-confidence in

applying them toward problem solving.

“I hope my students will have the tools they need

to tackle new analytical challenges throughout

their careers,” Blalock said. “This is part of the

reason why my electronics colleagues and I believe

strongly in a project-oriented curriculum with

open labs for specification-driven hardware design,

development and testing, rather than curriculum

with cookbook recipe-style laboratory exercises.”

Blalock says working with students remains at the

top of his list when it comes to his job.

“I genuinely think it is fun to teach electronics

and enjoy an interactive classroom,” Blalock said.

“A colleague of mine once said, ‘I teach for free,

but they must pay me to grade.’ I wholeheartedly

agree with that statement.”

Blalock enjoys working with students through

research, too.

“For me, most of ‘academic freedom’ is the freedom

to pursue research you find exciting and/or

beneficial to the students on your research team,”

Blalock said. “I have been fortunate that most of

the research my team has conducted has provided

valuable experience for the students prior to

graduation. Research is an important aspect of the

educational process, both for students and faculty.”

The students and faculty will soon continue

that research in the new Min H. Kao Electrical

Engineering and Computer Science Building,

which is projected to be finished and turned

over to the university in September. The EECS

department is scheduled to migrate its offices and

labs into the building after the start of 2012.

The new building will help us expand our

research efforts,” Blalock said. “And our teaching

efforts should benefit from the new classrooms.

The new building certainly represents an

unprecedented opportunity for our department and

college. My hope for the EECS department is that

we would fully capitalize on this new opportunity

toward providing a world-class program for our

students.”

Blalock has received many awards while at UT,

including his recent 2011 College of Engineering

Teaching Fellow Award. In 2009, he received

the Gonzales Family Award for Excellence in

Teaching, and in 2007, he received both the Moses

E. and Mayme Brooks Distinguished Professor

Award and the Chancellor’s Research and

Creative Achievement Award.

When he’s not in the lab or the classroom, Blalock

enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons.

As an assistant scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop

179, he recently completed a 10-night, 68-mile

backpacking trek at Philmont Scout Ranch in

northeastern New Mexico.

ASCE Student Chapter Wins First Place at Southeast Student Conference

Dr. Dayakar Penumadu (fifth from right) and Dr. John Ma (third from left) celebrate with ASCE students from UT and Tongji University.

The University of Tennessee took home 1st place at the 2011 American

Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Southeast Student Conference

hosted by Tennessee Tech University on March 25-26. Approximately 50

undergraduate students from UT’s Department of Civil and Environmental

Engineering (CEE) took part in 15 competitions and prepared for these

events most of the academic year. These competitions are designed to

explore student creative thinking in extending academic knowledge to

solving practical civil and environmental engineering problems.

“This is a significant accomplishment for our department and the College of

Engineering (COE),” said Dr. Dayakar Penumadu, CEE department head.

“We competed successfully and won against 26 participating universities

such as Florida, Vanderbilt, Auburn, etc. Many of our faculty and staff

were involved in helping the student groups on related competitions. They

provide an excellent opportunity to integrate classroom knowledge to

practical aspects of our profession.”

The event takes place every year, and the last time UT brought home

the first place overall trophy was in 2005. The UT conference chair was

Marianne Hutson, and the faculty advisor was Dr. John Ma.

Each year, UT invites Tongji University (Shanghai, China) to compete in

the competition. The university’s students flew into Knoxville and traveled

to Cookeville with UT students. Tongji University took home 3rd place at

the overall event. Drs. Baoshan Huang, Lee Han, Greg Reed and Ma were

instrumental in developing this international partnership with Tongji over

the past five years.

Following is a list of individual UT awards with the respective captains:

• Concrete Cubes – 1st: Patrick O’Leary

• Mystery Competition – 1st: Caleb Williams

IIE Shares Summer Program with Tecnológico de Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico

The Department

of Industrial

and Information

Engineering (IIE) at

the University of Tennessee has helped companies

within the renovation process by applying the

right tools for the right processes and helping

them to develop a sustainable culture. Based

on that experience, IIE developed a program

created specifically for students from Tecnológico

de Monterrey, that focuses on the development

of comprehensive experience in the Lean

methodology and its applications. The concept

of Lean has emerged as a feasible solution to

transform organizations, gaining competitiveness

by the wise use of available resources.

Along with the coursework, students in the

program, which began May 30th with 20 students

on the UT campus from June 4th through July

• Environmental Competition – 1st: Melissa MeKenzie and Reese DeBlois

• Surveying Competition – 2nd: Logan Johnson

• T-shirt Design – 2nd: Amanda Cruzen

• Transportation Competition – 2nd: Wesley Stokes

UT’s steel bridge team, led by Chris Haynes and Matt Hart, won 3rd place

overall, which qualified them to participate in the 2011 ASCE/AISC

National Student Steel Bridge Competition hosted by Texas A&M on May

20-21. The primary sponsor and co-sponsor of the event were the American

Institute of Steel Construction and ASCE, respectively.

The opportunity for as many team members as possible to make the trip in

order to represent the COE at a national competition was important to Ma.

With roughly a month between competitions, he began seeking sponsors

for the trip. The Knoxville branch of ASCE has been very supportive of

the student chapter over the years and decided to step in and help, which

resulted in lead sponsorship. Representatives from this branch agreed it was

a “natural response” to support its future members. In addition to ASCE

Knoxville, other co-sponsors included Professional Engineers, Inc., ASCE’s

Tennessee Section, the Middle Tennessee Section of the American Society

of Highway Engineers (ASHE), Britton Bridge, The Blalock Companies,

Chris Rhodes (BS/CE ’95, MS/CE ‘01) and Stephen Steele (BS/CE

’79). Their support collectively garnered $6,200 in necessary funding.

A total of seven students, as well as Larry Roberts (CEE design technician)

and Ma, were able to make the trip. UT placed 20th out of 48 schools,

placing higher than teams from many strong civil engineering programs

including Texas A&M, University of California, Berkeley, University of

Texas, Virginia Tech, University of Wisconsin and Penn State.

1st, were able to apply the concepts in a real-life

situation, working on a project with the help of

the faculty and research staff at the department.

The experience offered an excellent instruction,

a hands-on practice project to ensure the learning

process, and a cultural-recreational experience

to let them have a taste of the American college

life for the participants. IIE hopes to expand

the program to other international academic

institutions in the future.

COE Sponsors 2011 Smoky Mountains Regional FIRST Robotics Competition

The University

of Tennessee

(UT) College of

Engineering (COE),

along with several

other companies,

sponsored the 2011

Smoky Mountains

Regional: FIRST

Robotics Competition

at the Knoxville

Convention Center

March 31 through

April 2, 2011. Forty-six robotic teams from 14 states were in attendance.

The FIRST Robotics Competition is a long-standing challenge to inspire

curiosity and create interest in science, technology, engineering and

mathematics among high school students. Each year, the teams receive a kit

of parts and have six weeks to design and build a robot based on the team’s

interpretation of the game scenario provided by FIRST. Besides dimension

and weight restrictions, the look and function of the robots are up to each

individual team.

This year’s game was “LOGO MOTION.” Two alliances of three teams

competed on a 27-by-54-foot field with poles while attempting to earn points

by hanging as many triangle, circle and square logo pieces as possible. Bonus

points were earned for each robot that could hang and assemble logo pieces

to form the FIRST logo. Robots also deployed mini-bots that climbed vertical

poles for a chance to earn additional points.

These student teams competed for honors and

recognition in design excellence, competitive

play, sportsmanship and outreach toward

schools, area businesses and communities.

This year, the Hawks of Hardin Valley

Academy took the Rookie All Star Award

and the Highest Rookie Seed Award and Participants at the FIRST Robitics event

advanced to the championship held in St.

Louis, Mo. The Robowolves from Cordova High School in Memphis took the

Judges Award, and the Webb School of Knoxville student, Ishi Keenum, was

awarded as a FIRST Dean’s List finalist. The Seymour High School team took

home the Rookie Inspiration Award.

LJ Robinson, the Tennessee FIRST Regional Director, was recently appointed

to this position to develop the supportive committees and infrastructure of

Tennessee’s annual Smoky Mountains Regional event, as well as to procure the

financial support for its fruition. Robinson handles team recruitment, mentor

training, networking sponsorship for team support and coordination of FIRST’s

programs.

FIRST was founded in 1989 by inventor Dean Kamen to inspire participation in

science and technology among young people. COE alumnus Bryan Haynes (BS/

AE ’85, MS/AE ’87, PhD/ME ’91), senior manager for research and engineering

at Kimberly-Clark Corporation, and his wife, Connie, the FIRST regional

director in Georgia, were instrumental in bringing the program to Knoxville.

Connie Haynes believes FIRST has an incredible impact on students.

The FIRST program does two things for these students,” she said. “It reinforces

what they want to be, and it changes their minds on what they can be.”

Governor’s Chair Professor Discusses

Lessons to be Learned from Nuclear Disaster

On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0

earthquake struck the northeastern coast of

Japan, followed by a roughly 10-meter tsunami

that inundated the coast. This immense

human disaster is the cause for approximately

25,000 people dead or missing.

The high water level of the tsunami

overtopped the seawall at the Fukushima

Dr. Howard Hall

Daiichi nuclear power plant, compromising

the emergency generators and wiping away

most of the civil infrastructure. The multiple loss of cooling incidents at the

nuclear reactors has caused an ongoing crisis.

Dr. Howard Hall, Governor’s Chair professor of Global Nuclear Security in

the Department of Nuclear Engineering (NE), addressed some of the issues

related to this natural disaster.

Hall said the earthquake and tsunami that caused such damage at Fukushima

Daiichi were examples of accidents that exceeded what he calls the “design

basis accident scenario” for the plant. He said when the disaster occurred, the

plant was in trouble because its emergency safety systems were either damaged

or destroyed.

But Hall mentioned that even with these facts on the ground, the reactor

containment largely worked despite facing earthquake and flooding well above

the expected level. According to Hall, the highly radioactive spent reactor

fuel, even though some has clearly melted, remained within the facility.

Because of this, Hall believes it is critically important the public not let fear –

or false confidence – drive response to the accident.

“I understand the public’s anxiety,” Hall said. “Nuclear issues and risk from

exposure are difficult to understand. It doesn’t help that media reports are

frequently sensationalized, and all parties seek to slant media coverage. We

need to have the discipline to develop objective assessments and use those as

our basis for policymaking.”

Since the natural disaster occurred, U.S. nuclear plant operations have

undergone a number of immediate safety reviews by the U.S. Nuclear

Regulatory Commission. The U.S. has also gone through two major natural

disasters itself – the southeastern tornados and the Midwest flooding that

threatened to flood the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant in Nebraska.

The official inquires into the Fukushima accident will be concluded soon, and

we will see if there is anything additional in them,” Hall said. “Some of the

issues are likely to be relevant to plants in the U.S., and we will take a hard

look at them.”

Most of Hall’s work focuses on controlling and safeguarding nuclear materials

and technology for prevention of nuclear incidents that develop into national

or international disasters.

The approaches are different, but there are certainly areas of overlap,” Hall

said. “Many of these overlaps are at the interface of science, technology and

policy – and hence, our work with the Howard H. Baker Center for Public

Policy is a critical piece of the overall effort. We are looking at technological

TENNESSEE engineer • Fall 2011 • www.engr.utk.edu

solutions – better detectors, smarter algorithms, better integration with

emergency personnel and first responders, for example.”

So far, only Germany has declared it will exit the nuclear power business for

electricity production. Most other nations that are looking at expanding or

developing nuclear power programs are continuing on.

“If you care about carbon dioxide and the possible effects on global climate,

there’s really no other option for base load electricity than nuclear power,” Hall

said.

Back in March 2011, UT hosted a panel of nuclear experts to discuss the

accidents at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. Hall moderated the event.

Most of the discussion was based around the questions of health effects of

radiation.

“We were very happy that we were able to bring the medical experts that could

answer those questions to the panel and let the public interact with them

directly,” Hall said. “As you would expect, there was also a lot of interest in

Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) nuclear power plants, and having a senior

executive from TVA on the panel was very helpful there.”

Hall’s current research includes an effort to better understand how to measure

the effectiveness of complex, regional/national level systems for nuclear

security, specifically around interdicting threats.

“This is complicated because the ‘metrics’ for those systems usually focus on

the easy-to-measure data – how many detectors we have, how many officers are

trained, etc.,” Hall said. “Those numbers are useful but limited in terms of their

meaningfulness. What we would really like to know is what level of security we

gain from one system as compared to another. That’s a lot harder to measure

because many of the factors that go into it are poorly understood or are closely

tied with human factors — motivation, intent, risk-tolerance, etc. Ultimately,

we want to achieve deterrence — convincing the bad actors, be they terrorists

or proliferators, that they don’t want to engage in nuclear mischief or that we

are too hard a target.”

He said the framework of this research should be applicable to assessing options

in setting up emergency management architectures as well.

Overall, Hall admits there is much to be learned from the Fukushima incident.

“I think the lessons of Fukushima clearly highlight that we need to focus on

plant safety and emergency response over a broad range of potential accident

scenarios and make sure we have really robust community, regional and

national response plans for dealing with disasters,” he said. “Had the plant

owner, TEPCO, been able to get an alternate source of backup power to their

cooling pumps in time, this accident would have been largely averted.”

Hall said the lessons learned from the incident will spread to the classroom as

well.

“I think we will definitely be studying this accident for a long time, and the

lessons learned from it will be in the curricula for the foreseeable future,” Hall

said. “Strengthening our curricula on accident scenarios, emergency planning

and redundancy of safety systems and their backups will be an outcome. As we

get into the dismantlement and failure analysis of the plants, we’ll learn even

more that will influence our teaching and research efforts.”

COE Alumnus Works to Provide Positive Impact on

Lives of Others

Terry Douglass (BS/EE ‘65, MS/EE ‘66, Ph.D./EE

‘68) has focused his life and career on making the

world around him a healthier, better place.

Douglass was born in Jackson, Tenn. in 1942 and

lived in the same house until he left to attend

UT Knoxville in 1960. Douglass had always been

interested in science, math and building new

things, so engineering was a natural fit. UT’s strong

Cooperative Engineering Scholarship Program

also provided a financial incentive for Douglass to

attend the institution, as it offered a way to pay for

his education.

“I had a very blessed period of my life during my

years at the university,” Douglass said. “I found

that I could do well in my classes and enjoyed the

learning experience. Making the UT experience

even more gratifying, I had an interesting and

useful co-op job in my home town, where I got to

see my future wife frequently. We were married

in the last quarter of my junior year and lived in

student housing for four years until I got my Ph.D.

We had our first child around that time and made

many good friends, so I remember it very fondly.”

Douglass was employed at EG&G Ortec (Ortec)

from 1968 until 1983, and he served as the

company’s president during his last three years of

service. In 1982, Douglass began working on the

development of a new company; and in 1983, he

began collaborating with former Ortec employees

Ron Nutt and Kelly Milam, along with Mike

Crabtree, who was still employed at Ortec. Ortec

was planning to sell off its medical diagnostic

imaging division, and the four decided to purchase

it to form their own company, that was to become

CTI Molecular Imaging (CTI). The development

of CTI was to have historic consequences for

improvements in medical diagnostic imaging.

“Ron Nutt asked me on July 5, 1983, ‘what are you

going to do with the rest of your life,’” Douglass

recalled. “And I said, ‘let me tell you an idea that

I have for a new business.’ We all put our heads

together and began team meetings on Saturday

mornings. My wife would cook a great Southern

breakfast to encourage us to get together, and Ron

came over to my house many late afternoons to

discuss the plans for what became CTI Molecular

Imaging (CTI).”

After much hard work and financial risk, the

fledging company took off and soon established

itself as a leader and strong competitor in the

development and commercialization of positron

emission tomography (PET) technology, including

the development of PET scanner and cyclotron

technology and PET radiopharmaceutical delivery.

Douglass served as president and CEO of CTI

from its formation in 1983 until 2003. He also

was instrumental in the

development of Medicare

reimbursement for PET

services.

CTI eventually became a

public company in 2002,

and Douglass served as

Chairman of the Board for

CTI Molecular Imaging,

Inc. until 2005, when

Siemens acquired it.

“CTI made the major

strategic and engineering

changes necessary to make

PET a clinical reality,” Douglass commented. “We

had some major engineering changes, including

higher performance, cost-effective PET and PET/

CT scanners that used new detector technology

and higher performance cost-effective cyclotron

and automated chemistry devices. PET’s use in

clinical diagnostic imaging is now obviously

important.”

Once his affiliation with CTI ended, Douglass

turned his attention toward the development

of a world-class healthcare program, located

at the Provision Health Alliance at Dowell

Springs. Provision Health Alliance (http://

www.pvhealthcare.com/) is a coalition of

related companies, institutions, partnerships

and relationships whose interests include the

development of new, innovative, comprehensive

healthcare product and service solutions that

will make major improvements in patient care,

outcomes and value; establishing a healthcare

provider model in which the patient is better

served through physician and hospital system

cooperation and partnership; and offering a focus

on personal wellness, choice and accountability

through preventative, personalized, predictive and

participative healthcare.

Douglass serves as president of Provision

Healthcare, LLC and Provision Trust, Inc. and is

Chairman of the Board of Provision Foundation,

Inc. (http://provisionfoundation.org/). Provision

Foundation and Provision Trust are 501c3

charitable organizations with a focus on serving

others through ministry, research, healthcare, and

education. Particular areas of focus include China,

Haiti and Guatemala.

The primary mission of Provision Health Alliance

is to build a world-class, comprehensive innovative

cancer program that is unmatched anywhere and

to use this capability to positively impact the lives

of individuals both in our area and around the

world. The cancer program will have all of the

available diagnostic and therapy tools necessary for

state-of-the-art cancer care,” Douglass said. “We

are providing an equal balance between clinical

and medical, research, academic and commercial

capabilities that will function at the highest level.”

In addition to his involvement with ProVision,

Douglass has served or is serving on the following

boards: YMCA, Knoxville Chamber of Commerce,

Hope Resource Center, Young Life, the UT

College of Engineering Board of Advisors, the UT

Chancellor’s Associates, and the CTI Biomedical

Research Center at the UT Medical Center. CTI

established a $1 million endowment to initiate

the CTI Biomedical Research Center at the UT

Medical Center.

In 2006, Douglass and the other CTI partners gave

an additional gift of $1 million to the university

to establish a new CTI Chair in the Department

of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

(EECS). The announcement of the gift was made

at the college’s Honors Banquet where all four

partners were reunited to present the funding. Dr.

Kevin Tomsovic, head and professor in the EECS

department, is the current CTI Chair.

In April 2011, Douglass received the Nathan W.

Dougherty Award, the College of Engineering’s

most prestigious honor, at the Faculty and Staff

Awards Dinner at the Foundry.

In his remarks, Douglass said that he was “honored

and humbled by the award” and added that he

was “blessed by and thankful for all the many

contributions made by the university and its staff

to his education and career.”

Douglass is married to Rosann Bobbitt Douglass;

and they have three married children (Deborah

and Lance Robinson, Melissa and Norris Hill and

Dean and Lesli Douglass); and 10 grandchildren

(Wesley, Luke, Aaron, Bailey, Brianna, Alexandra,

Anna Rose, Truman, Walker and Mamie).

Douglass isn’t sure about any future UT graduates

among the grandchildren yet, but says it is “very

likely.”

College of Engineering Holds Spring 2011

Commencement

The College of Engineering Spring 2011 graduation ceremony took place

on Wednesday, May 11, with over 253 engineering graduates participating

in the ceremony. A group of approximately 2,300 parents, friends and

relatives attended the event, which took place in Thompson-Boling

Arena on the UT-Knoxville campus at 11:30 a.m.

Dr. Wayne Davis, dean of engineering, led the academic procession that

signaled the beginning of the ceremony. The procession included associate

deans, department heads and faculty representatives. Dr. Jimmy G. Cheek,

chancellor of the UT-Knoxville campus, also attended the ceremony.

Mr. Spruell Driver, a 1987 industrial engineering alumnus, was the

commencement speaker. Driver, a practicing attorney who received his

law degree in 1991 from Duke Law School, is a current member of the

UT Board of Trustees and was president of the UT National Alumni

Association from 2004-2005. He also served as National Chair of the

association’s Annual Giving Program in 2005-2006 and is a former

member of the College of Engineering’s Board of Advisors.

Driver told students to always strive to reach their goals, to stay close to

family and friends and to give back to their communities.

The college’s top student, David Christopher Flowers, a chemical

engineering major, was also recognized.

In addition to the commencement activities, the event also featured a

military ceremony, where Lt. Colonel Michael S. Angle, a professor of

aerospace studies at UT, officially commissioned four COE graduates into

the U.S. Air Force. The new second lieutenants are Joshua Coughenour,

Jonathan Crow, Timothy McLerran and Alexandra Pattenn.

A highlight of the event was when Jacob Okumu Oyier, a student from

Kenya, and Mark Edmund Tominey, a student from England, received

their degrees at the end of the ceremonies. The two civil engineering

majors had just been granted status as U.S. citizens in a ceremony that

took place at 8:00 a.m. in Greeneville, Tenn. and had to rush back to

Knoxville to get to their graduation event.

The coincidence of the two events being on the same day was a very big

blessing to me,” Oyier said. “It was exciting.”

“It was a little nerve-wracking, but very exhilarating,” Tominey said. “My

parents had traveled all the way from England to see me graduate and my

wife and two sons were there too, so I was really happy it worked out so well.”

NE Student Receives

Goldwater Scholarship

Mark Walker, a nuclear engineering

major, has been named a 2011

Barry M. Goldwater Scholar. The

Goldwater Scholarships are awarded

on an annual basis to sophomores and

juniors pursuing research careers in

mathematics, the natural sciences or

engineering.

Walker is a member of the Chancellor’s Honors and Haslam

Scholars programs. He has been actively researching at

the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) since the summer

after his freshman year. He also had an internship with the

Department of Energy in Washington, D.C., last summer.

Walker’s most current research at ORNL involves nuclear

safeguards, and he hopes to continue his research and

pursue policy development in nuclear security after earning

his Ph.D. in nuclear engineering.

In 2011, the Goldwater Foundation awarded 275

scholarships nationwide out of a pool of almost 1,100

applicants. Students who compete for the award must be

nominated by their academic institution. All three students

nominated by UT received Goldwater scholarships, and

UT received more awards than Yale, Caltech, MIT and

Georgia Tech.

Announcing Engineering Gift Recognition Societies Outright Gifts

With growing support from alumni, corporate leaders,

and other friends, we in the College of Engineering

wanted to create a way to recognize these important

philanthropic investments. From annual gifts of every

size to million dollar gifts your support is important to

the advancement of engineering education. We want to

say thank you for the gifts and the givers to the College

of Engineering.

Dorothy Bryson New plaques in Perkins Hall celebrate our three new

societies, the Dean’s Circle and Jerry E. Stoneking

engage program support. Come by and see! And while you are here, come

and visit with me, Brian, Patrick, Adlai or Julie in the Development Office

to discuss

how you can

support the

progress of

the College of

Engineering

through an

annual gift, an

endowment,

or an estate

gift!

The 1838 Society

When engineering became a part of the curriculum at the University of

Tennessee in 1838, the industrial revolution in the United States was just

starting. Innovation and ingenuity applied through engineering and driven by

engineering education helped transform this country into one of the greatest

economic powers in history. Cash gifts of $1 million or more to the College of

Engineering have that same potential to dramatically strengthen the power of

engineering education in Tennessee. In the 1838 Society we proudly recognize

the individuals and industrial partners whose cash gifts to the College of

Engineering total $1 million or more.

Estabrook Society

The foresight of University of Tennessee president Joseph Estabrook

established the courses that would lead to the College of Engineering at the

University of Tennessee. The individuals who include the college in their

estate plans through wills, bequests, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance

and gift annuities exhibit that same vision by providing resources that will

enhance engineering education at Tennessee far into the future. It is fitting to

recognize donors who, through their estate plans, provide for programs in the

college as members of the Estabrook Society.

Cornerstone Society

We are grateful to the many donors whose endowments provide continuing

support for student scholarships, fellowships, faculty endowments,

professorships, chairs and other programs of excellence. These permanent

endowments provide an annual income stream that enables the college’s

leadership to strategically advance engineering education at the University of

Tennessee.

Dean’s Circle

The Dean’s Circle recognizes leadership-level annual giving of $1000 or more

to the College Fund for Engineering or parallel annual gift funds in each of

our seven departments. The benefit of these designated, but unrestricted,

funds is in their flexibility and immediacy.

The Jerry E. Stoneking engage Engineering Fundamentals recognition

To help attract and keep more engineering students, the University of

Tennessee’s College of Engineering established one of the nation’s most

innovative approaches to undergraduate first-year engineering education.

The Jerry Stoneking engage program offers a success-oriented curriculum

embedded with practical applications that form the foundation for all

engineering majors. This plaque recognizes donors whose gifts of $25,000 or

more provide foundational support for the engage program.

Strong partners and secure finances create a dynamic college. Thank you.

Gifts and Pledges Received as of 8/31/2011 – $88,173,658

There will be more about the campaign in a future newsletter but it

is with great thanks to our many donors that we have gone beyond

our initial campaign goal. This trajectory of giving is important as

the college charts future success. We want to express great thanks to

each donor listed here for the support you give.

The Dean’s Circle 2010

Note the Dean’s Circle is counted on the calendar year. All other giving

totals in this report are for the fiscal year July 1, 2010 – June 30, 2011.

Leadership annual giving is recognized in

Engineer’s Day October 27th, 2011

Engineers Day has been a UT College of Engineering tradition

for nearly 100 years. Each October, undergraduate engineering

classes are dismissed for one day to allow university students

and faculty to spend time interacting with hundreds of potential

engineering students from high schools across the region.

Engineers Day features four competitions for visiting students.

Results for last year’s Quiz Bowl, Egg Drop Competition and

ASCE High School Balsa Wood Bridge Competition can be

found on the Competitions page.

If you would like more information on this event contact the

Engineering Student Affairs office at (865) 974-2454.
