LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Texas Tech University officials announced on Tuesday that Elizabeth "Beth" Dickey will become the next dean of the Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering effective January 1.

The announcement came from Provost Bob Smith, who said Dickey was one of 56 people to apply for the job.

Dickey currently is a professor of materials science and engineering and the associate director of the Materials Research Institute at The Pennsylvania State University. Dickey received a bachelor's degree in materials engineering from the University of Kentucky and a doctorate in materials science and engineering from Northwestern University.

Upon receiving her Ph.D. in 1997, Dickey was on the faculty at the University of Kentucky until 2001, when she moved to Penn State. Her academic and research interests include nanomaterials for electrical and sensing applications, interface materials science, high-temperature ceramic composites, transmission electron microscopy and residual stress analysis in textured composites.

The Whitacre College of Engineering has educated engineers to meet the technological needs of Texas, the nation and the world since 1925.

Approximately 4,000 undergraduate and 700 graduate students pursue bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees offered through eight academic departments: civil and environmental engineering, chemical engineering, construction engineering and engineering technology, computer science, electrical and computer engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, and petroleum engineering.
