EPP Names New Chairs for Systems Engineering, Technical
Engineering Programs for
Professionals has separated the management of its Systems
Engineering and Technical Management programs. With the
retirement of Kenneth A. Potocki, who chaired both, two new
program chairs were appointed, effective June 30. The change
was made in order to focus greater attention on the growth
opportunities in both areas, EPP administrators said.
A search committee drawn from the Applied Physics Laboratory
and the Whiting School
of Engineering selected Ronald Luman to chair Systems
Engineering and Joseph Suter to chair Technical Management.
Samuel Seymour will continue as vice chair of Systems
Luman, who currently heads the National Security Analysis
Department at APL, will be working to enhance the competitive
position of EPP's Systems Engineering program in this
Suter, in addition to developing and teaching courses for
many years at Johns Hopkins, has distinguished himself in
leadership and management roles in APL's Research and
Technology Development Center and in the Lab's Space
Seymour will continue to draw on his extensive experience at
both APL and EPP to help guide the Systems Engineering
program in responding to the changing needs of students,
their employers and the nation.
