VU Engineering appointments
Vanderbilt University School of Engineering Dean Ken Galloway (at left) has been reappointed after 12 years in the post, for another 4-year term, an indication of strong support from VU officials. VUSE also announced that Peter Pintauro is joining the Engineering school as chairman of the Chem.E. department, from a named-chair faculty position at Case Western Reserve. Also, George Hornberger has been named director of the recently established Vanderbilt's Institute for Energy and the Environment. He joined VU earlier this year from the faculty of the University of Virginia.
