The School of Informatics and Computing has named Distinguished Professor Geoffrey Fox the interim associate dean for Intelligent Systems Engineering.

Intelligent systems engineering, SoIC’s newest program, is the engineering of the future. The program aims to create the next generation of engineers, with a focus on artificial intelligence.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge of redefining engineering and guiding ISE as it builds its role as an innovation leader at IU,” Fox said. “Creating a new program ab initio offers us the opportunity to focus on a modern set of engineering topics, namely those that involve intelligent systems, as realized with embedded computing components combined with sophisticated data interpretation.”

In a world of increasing connectivity, creating a pipeline to turn data into information and knowledge is more critical than ever. The intelligent systems engineering program will train students in the practical engineering of systems with an emphasis on hands-on simulation, designing, and building systems.

“We’re thrilled Geoffrey has accepted the role of Interim Associate Dean of ISE,” said Raj Acharya, dean of SoIC. “His experience and leadership will serve as a rudder for the program as we go about the process of hiring a permanent dean to take this groundbreaking program into the future.”

Industry leaders helped to develop six focus areas which are integrated with our intelligent systems focus:

  • Bioengineering
  • Computer engineering
  • Cyberphysical systems
  • Environmental engineering
  • Molecular and Nanoengineering
  • Neuroengineering
