UT Dallas professor receives Engineer of the Year award
Date:7/22/2014

Dr. Terry Baughn, a senior lecturer in mechanical engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas, has been named Engineer of the Year by the North Texas section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

ASME has more than 130,000 members in 158 countries who develop engineering standards and training. They also share technology to assist the engineering community, benefiting the world.

ASME recognized Baughn earlier this year at the Texas Society of Professional Engineers honors banquet. Baughn retired as an engineering fellow in 2012 after 23 years with Raytheon Co. in the space and airborne systems area. He joined the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science in fall of 2013. In the Jonsson School, he focuses on mentoring teams of senior design students with their capstone projects.

"To be selected as the recipient of the Engineer of the Year Award is clearly a testament to his professional accomplishments over a career dedicated to the mechanical engineering profession," said Dr. Robert Hart, also a senior lecturer in mechanical engineering. "Having someone like Dr. Baughn in the classroom gives our students an opportunity to learn from someone who has spent his career applying the concepts he teaches."

Baughn received his bachelor's and master's degrees from Purdue University, and earned his doctorate at the University of Delaware. He worked at General Motors and the International Harvester truck group before joining the faculty of Southern Methodist University. In 1989, he joined the Texas Instruments Defense Systems Equipment Group, which was purchased by Raytheon in 1997.

Baughn said the transition from college to the workforce can sometimes be underestimated.

"I can help our academic-based students through the huge transition of being useful once you come to work," he said.

"Every day in industry you have to slay a dragon. Professional engineering is a competitive w
