In recognition of his many successful efforts to foster the growth of Fairfield University’s School of Engineering, Dr. Evangelos Hadjimichael, its founding dean, has been named a Bridgeport Engineering Institute (BEI) Fellow, one of just several fellows named during its long history.
The School of Engineering has its roots in BEI.
In the early 1990s, Dr. Hadjimichael, then a professor in the College of Arts & Sciences, alerted Fairfield administrators about an opportunity to merge the 70-year-old Bridgeport Engineering Institute into the University, and so establish the School of Engineering. During his tenure, he successfully converted the engineering school from an institution geared to part-time evening students to one that is now offering numerous undergraduate degree programs to full-time, as well as part-time students. In addition, four master’s degree programs were added, starting in 1998.
