50 years strong and only getting better

From its founding in 1964, Herff has been devoted to influencing the world. Early on, we became one of the region's strongest think tanks for future engineers. Today we have achieved national notoriety in many areas of expertise—from biomedical innovations to nanotechnology to transportation efficiencies. Research funding has climbed to exciting levels and our growth has been tremendous. The five decades that have passed are filled with impressive people who graduated from the Herff College of Engineering and went out into the world to solve problems and change humanity in countless ways.
Students and faculty come to Herff from all over, but they share one common attribute: huge potential to impact society. And they never disappoint. There's no stopping a Herff grad. We applaud these achievements and celebrate the strength of our growing Herff community.
Driving Herff College of Engineering to even bigger and better things is Dr. Richard Sweigard who joined us as dean in 2013 after serving as associate dean at the University of Kentucky. He is the bridge between our past, our present and the promise of our future. In Dr. Sweigard, the faculty and staff feel recharged about what lies ahead and are moved by his strong leadership. Prior to working at Kentucky, Dean Sweigard also taught at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and Pennsylvania State University. He holds a BS in civil engineering from Drexel University, an MA in geology from Penn State, and a PhD in mining engineering, also from Penn State.
