Terpenny, Center Director, Shares Exciting News

With great excitement we announce that Janis Terpenny, Director of the Center for e-Design, will be moving to Penn State University this fall. She will serve as the Peter and Angela Dal Pezzo Department Chair and Head of the Harold and Inge Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME). The Department Head position holds the unique distinction of being the only endowed department head chair in an endowed engineering department at Penn State University (PSU). The $5 million department endowment, the $3 million endowed chair, and the recently completed Leonhard Building present significant opportunities for continued development and innovation. The Leonhard Building is a state-of-the-art facility with laboratory, office, and classroom space, including the Factory for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FAME), which is an integrated high-bay laboratory with most of the elements of a real manufacturing facility. IME has the distinction of being the first IE program in the country.

Stay tuned in months ahead for updates and new collaborations!
