Dunn named interim head for mechanical and nuclear engineering department

By Mary Rankin

Associate Professor William Dunn has been named interim department head of mechanical and nuclear engineering effective Aug. 1. Dunn has a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Notre Dame, and both master's and doctoral degrees in nuclear engineering from North Carolina State University. His research and scholarship areas include radiation measurement and applications, and mathematical modeling and inverse analysis.

He replaces Professor Don Fenton, who had served the past four years as department head and will return to his teaching and research duties in mechanical and nuclear engineering.

Dunn’s appointment was announced by Gary Clark, interim dean of the College of Engineering, who also said a search to fill the regular department head position will begin soon after the start of the fall semester.
