After joining the U.S. Navy while in college and receiving training as a submarine nuclear engineer, I served as a nuke at sea and ashore for 13 years. My next step was to switch communities in the Navy and attend graduate school, earning both a master's degree in mechanical engineering and the professional degree of mechanical engineer.

Let’s get writing again – try your hand at blogging (SEMS blogs) | Sharing knowledge

Blog photoAfter several years of stellar leadership, Lukasz Mazur, Ph.D., is handing over leadership of SEMS Blog to Chinweike Eseonu, Ph.D. During his tenure, Mazur recruited topic leaders from a broad range of backgrounds who provided insights from their industry and academic experience. As we finalize the leadership transition, Eseonu is re-engaging with topic leaders and recruiting new ones. He plans to continue the focus on increasing SEMS blog visibility via social media, recruitment of topic leaders for unfilled/new topics, and even stronger student engagement. Interested in blogging? Have insights from a recent project or observation? Are your students or employees working through interesting problems? Share your knowledge with us. We use a very intuitive blogging platform that is very similar to the MS Word or Pages interfaces.

Blog and Content Chair: Chinwike Eseonu, assistant professor of industrial and manufacturing engineering at Oregon State University. Contact Chinweike if you are interested in writing blogs or becoming the next blog and content chair.
