Gerard P. Lennon is a professor of civil and environmental engineering and member of numerous organizations, including ASEE. He earned a B.S. from Drexel University, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. from Cornell University. He authored over 70 papers, including several on accreditation and engineering education, and his groundwater research has been funded by five different federal and state agencies, including an NSF investigation of ocean-bottom geothermal vents in the Alvin Submarine. As a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, he organized an International Groundwater Symposium and was an associate editor of the Hydraulics Journal. He was lead author of the 2001 Civil Engineering Self-Study report submitted to ABET, coordinated the 2007 accreditation/re-accreditation of 10 engineering programs as Associate Dean of Engineering & Applied Science, and, as Deputy Provost for Academic Affairs, had lead responsibility for submission of the 2013 university accreditation report to the Middle States Council on Higher Education, chairing several committees, including Enhancing Graduate Education and Assessment of Student Learning.
Professor John B. Ochs is the co-founder and director of Lehigh University’s engineering master's degree program in technical entrepreneurship (www.lehigh.edu/innovate/). He joined the Lehigh faculty in 1979 as an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, was promoted to associate professor in 1983, and to full professor in 1990. He founded and directed the computer-aided design labs in the mechanical engineering and mechanics department from 1980 to 2001. From 1996 to the present, he has directed the university’s Integrated Product Development (IPD) capstone program (www.lehigh.edu/ipd). The IPD and TE program bring together students from all three undergraduate colleges to work in multidisciplinary teams on industry-sponsored product development projects and student–led start-ups. In 2006, Prof. Ochs received the Olympus Innovation Award for his work in technical entrepreneurship through the IPD program. In 2012, the National Academy of Engineering recognized Lehigh’s IPD program as one of the top programs for infusing real-world experiences in engineering education. Prof. Ochs is a member of ASEE and past chairman of its Entrepreneurship and Engineering Innovation Division.
Dr. Brown is a Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. His research interests are in environmental biotechnology with a strong linkage between experimentation and numerical modeling. He has performed research on interactions between microorganisms and surfaces; microbial attachment and transport through porous media; and microbial kinetics in natural and engineered systems, with application to bioremediation of environmental contaminants and energy recovery from organic waste streams. He also does research on environmental risk assessment. Brown is registered Professional Engineer in California and Pennsylvania, and is a Board Certified Environmental Engineer with the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists. He holds patents on enhancing the stability of anaerobic digestion for energy production and on a method for characterizing coal tar in soil.
