Paul Componation, chair of the Industrial, Manufacturing, and Systems Engineering Department in the college since 2014, was named associate dean for graduate and interdisciplinary affairs for the College of Engineering in January 2023.

Dr. Componation led the creation of the new resource and energy engineering undergraduate degree program and was instrumental in launching two master's programs at the UTA Fort Worth campus.

"I'm happy to welcome Paul to the college's Dean's Office administrative team," says Peter Crouch, dean of engineering. "His experience and systems approach will pay dividends as we continue to grow all dimensions of the college."
