Justin W. Kile, of Cheshire, has been promoted from associate professor to the newly created position of associate dean of engineering at Quinnipiac University.
“After the School of Business and Engineering conducted a national search for the new associate dean of engineering, Justin Kile was the search committee's overwhelming favorite to assume this critical position,’ said Matthew L. O’Connor, dean of the School of Business and Engineering. “Justin is an excellent teacher, an experienced academic administrator and a strong proponent for engineering education. I have complete confidence that Justin will do an outstanding job helping to lead the growth and development of our engineering programs.”
In his new position, Kile will be responsible for overseeing the university’s engineering program, which launched in 2012 and offers programs in civil, mechanical, industrial and software engineering leading to bachelor of science degrees. The program also will increase the number of its faculty from two to eight this fall.
“It’s very exciting to be a part of something new and to be a part of this team,” Kile said. “I am looking forward to watching this program continue to grow.”
Kile came to Quinnipiac in 2012 from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, where he was coordinator of the industrial engineering program. He earned a doctorate and a master’s degree in industrial and operational engineering from the University of Michigan. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in industrial and manufacturing engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology. He is a member of the Institute of Industrial Engineers and the American Society for Engineering Education.
