overview

Larry J. Shuman is Distinguished Service Professor of Industrial Engineering, Swanson School of Engineering, University of Pittsburgh. He previously served as Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs within the Swanson School of Engineering for 32 years. His most recent research has focused on improving the engineering educational experience, emphasizing assessment of learning and students’ problem-solving abilities. Earlier research has addressed how engineers recognize and resolve potential ethical dilemmas in the workplace. When first joining the University of Pittsburgh he was a very active researcher in the field of Health Services Research. Within the Swanson School of Engineering Dr. Shuman led the development of very successful cooperative engineering education study and abroad programs. He served as the Spring 2002 Academic Dean for the Semester at Sea Program. A former senior editor of the Journal of Engineering Education, Dr. Shuman is the founding editor of ASEE’s Advances in Engineering Education. He has published widely in the engineering education literature, and before that the health services research literature (nearly 200 papers). He is co-author of Engineering Ethics: Balancing Cost, Schedule and Risk – Lessons Learned from the Space Shuttle (Cambridge University Press) and co-editor of Health Operations Research: A Critical Analysis, Johns Hopkins University Press, 1975. Dr. Shuman received his Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University in Operations Research and the BSEE from the University of Cincinnati. He is an ASEE Fellow.
