Dr. Joel Burken, Curators’ Professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, has been named interim chair of that department effective Dec. 21. Dr. Douglas R. Carroll, who has served as acting chair of the department since September, will return to his full-time duties as director of the Cooperative Engineering Program between Missouri S&T and Missouri State University in Springfield.

“I look forward to working with Joel in this new capacity, and I thank Doug for his service to the civil, architectural and environmental engineering department during this past semester,” says Dr. Robert Marley, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs.

Burken joined the Missouri S&T faculty in 1997 and was named Curators’ Professor during last weekend’s commencement ceremonies. He will serve as interim chair until a new chair is brought on board.
