Greg Dillon, associate director for research and technology transfer and associate professor of engineering, received the Ph.D. in materials engineering from the University of Limerick, Ireland. Dr. Dillon worked most recently at the Applied Research Lab at Pennsylvania State, University Park, where he had been deputy division head of the Composite Materials Division since 2000. Prior to that, he worked at Northrop Grumman, Lawrie Technology, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
This summer, Penn State Behrend’s Supermileage team took first place in the Society of Automotive Engineers International Supermileage Challenge! We talked with engineering students and team members John Pearson, Taylor Pearson, and Cody Colpo as well as team adviser, Rich Englund, associate professor of engineering, about the big win and they had so many great things to say that we couldn’t fit it all into the magazine.
