In the spring of 2015 Associate Professor Paul Chan announced his retirement after 35 years on the MU chemical engineering faculty. It wasn’t an easy decision for him. He enjoys what he does, especially his work as the department’s undergraduate advisor as well as his decade-long position as chair of the College of Engineering’s scholarship committee.
C.L. Chen has been at the forefront of thermal management and microfluidic technology for “hot” electronic devices for years. It was part of his research during his time as department manager and founder of Applied Computational Physics and Thermal and Flow Physics at Teledyne Scientific and Imaging. And it has remained at the core of his work since he joined the MU Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department faculty as a professor and director of the Aero, Thermal, Fluid and Energy Laboratory in 2011.
Earning a publication credit in one of the Royal Society’s journals would be a mark of distinction on any researcher’s resume. And now, two members of the MU College of Engineering’s Computer Science Department can claim that honor.
When businessman and entrepreneur Phil Anschutz needed an expert on electric utilities to help him build a wind energy business in Wyoming, he tapped Bill Boyd, BS EE ’70, to be executive vice president and chief operating officer of Wyoming Renewable Resources.
