David W. Bacon Distinguished Speaker Series
Dr. David Bacon was a leader — well ahead of his time. He is remembered by alumni as both a rigorous and a compassionate educator and mentor who had a knack for blending statistical theory and practice in the classroom. As a professor many of his students called his courses the most useful they’ve ever taken and during an eleven-year term as dean from 1980 to 1991, he emerged as an early champion of women in engineering. The David W. Bacon Distinguished Speaker Series will attract academics and industry leaders from around the world to share insights into the technical aspects of their work and its applications.
