Greg Harris has been selected as chair of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Auburn University. His appointment began Nov. 1, according to an announcement from Steve Taylor, interim dean of the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering.“We have a great situation here. Our faculty are doing great research, we’ve got great students and the program is growing,” said Harris, associate professor of industrial and systems engineering and director of the Interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Manufacturing Systems, or ICAMS. “There’s going to be a lot of change going on with new faculty joining our department and the focus that I have is really to try to make sure we keep the culture the way we have it. It’s a fun place to be and a fun place to work.”Harris succeeds John Evans, the Charles D. Miller Chair Professor of industrial and systems engineering, who has been the department’s chair since 2016. Evans will continue to serve in his professor role and as director of the Thomas Walter Center.The full story can be found here: https://eng.auburn.edu/news/2022/11/harris-named-industrial-and-systems-department-chair.html
