James L. "Bud" Layne Professorship in Mechanical Engineering

Established September 25, 1998 

The Layne Professorship provides support to the ME program and the Department of Engineering through the establishment of project-based learning experiences centered on the concept of "design-build-test."

The Professor serves to create a "bridge" to regional industries to identify "real-life" project opportunities for faculty and students that integrate existing and emerging technologies. The Professor also identifies opportunities for external funding, state, federal and private to support continued development of the program and department.

The Professor participates in the delivery of the instructional program, teaching a minimum of one course per semester as well as assisting with the accreditation criteria related to incorporation of design concepts in the curriculum.

The Layne Professorship also provide support for student competitions and classroom supplies.
