CLIVE L. DYM is Fletcher Jones Professor of Engineering Design and Director of the Center for Design Education at Harvey Mudd College. His primary interests are in engineering design and structural mechanics. After receiving the PhD from Stanford University, Dr. Dym held appointments at the University at Buffalo; the Institute for Defense Analyses; Carnegie Mellon University; Bolt, Beranek and Newman; and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He was also head of his department at UMass (1977–85) and chair of his department at Harvey Mudd (1999–2002). Dr. Dym has held visiting appointments at the TECHNION-Israel Institute of Technology, the Institute for Sound and Vibration Research at Southampton, Stanford, Xerox PARC, Carnegie Mellon, Northwestern and USC. He has authored or coauthored some 85 refereed journal articles, was Founding Editor of the journal Artificial Intelligence for Engineering Design, Analysis, and Manufacturing, and has served on the editorial boards of several other journals, including the ASME’s Journal of Mechanical Design.

 

Dr. Dym is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Society of Civil Engineers and the American Society for Engineering Education, and is a Member of the American Academy of Mechanics. Dr. Dym’s awards include the Walter L. Huber Research Prize (ASCE, 1980), the Western Electric Fund Award (ASEE, 1983), the Boeing Outstanding Educator Award (first runner-up, 2001), the Fred Merryfield Design Award (ASEE, 2002), the Joel and Ruth Spira Outstanding Design Educator Award (ASME, 2004), and the Archie Higdon Distinguished Educator Award (Mechanics Division, ASEE, 2006).
