Dr. Suzanna Long, chair and professor of engineering management and systems engineering, has received the Bernard R. Sarchet Award from the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM) in recognition of her advancement and support of the discipline.
Sarchet is largely credited with establishing the first engineering management department at a U.S. university in 1965 while he was a professor at Missouri S&T, then known as the University of Missouri-Rolla. He served as the first chair of the engineering management department at the university.
Long joined S&T’s faculty in 2008 and was named chair in 2017 after serving as interim for two years. She is a past president of the Society for Engineering and Management Systems – a part of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers – and a fellow and past board member of ASEM.
Considered to be the highest award given by ASEM in honor of its founder, the Sarchet Award is given annually to an ASEM member who has contributed the most to the organization locally, nationally or internationally.
