Readey selected Mines Distinguished Lecturer
GOLDEN, Colo., March 17, 2008 – Dennis Readey, Colorado School of Mines university emeritus professor of metallurgical and materials engineering, was chosen by his peers as this year’s Faculty Senate Distinguished Lecturer.
“Changes in industry and the evolution of science, technology and education changed ceramics engineering education,” Readey said. “The changes it experienced are informative to current discussions about industry- and technology-generated engineering specialization and its impact on all engineering disciplines.”
He holds a bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering from the University of Notre Dame and a doctorate in ceramic engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Readey has been active in the American Ceramic Society for 48 years where he is a Fellow and Distinguished Life Member. He served the Society as treasurer, vice president and president and received the Jeppson, Purdy and Educator of the Year awards. Readey was selected as the Society’s Sosman Lecturer in 2002.
