Waryoba Brings Depth to Four Year Engineering Degree at Penn State DuBois
DuBois - Daudi Waryoba has joined Penn State DuBois as an Assistant Professor in Engineering this fall semester, and will contribute a wealth of knowledge to the new four-year general engineering degree program.
Waryoba received his Ph.D. in Mechanical and Material Engineering from Florida State University (FSU) in 2003. Before coming to Penn State DuBois he worked as a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Florida A & M University-FSU College of Engineering, from fall 2008 to summer 2010, where he taught a variety of courses. He also worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL).
Waryoba's arrival at Penn State DuBois this fall has happened concurrently with the launch of the new baccalaureate degree program, General Engineering, with an Applied Materials Track, which is offered on campus for the first time this year.
"I am enthusiastic and optimistic for the new engineering program at Penn State DuBois," Waryoba said. "I am looking forward not only to using my teaching and research experience in the class room, but also to working on collaboration with local industries and communities."
"With Daudi's previous industrial experience we're hoping to expand our partnerships with the area Powder Metals and manufacturing industries," explained fellow Assistant Professor of Engineering Craig Stringer. "He will help us to foster those relationships that are mutually beneficial to us and area companies. Our students get great internships and employment opportunities, while those companies see our graduates entering the workforce as well qualified potential employees."
