Dr. Sherri Messimer Associate Professor, Industrial & Systems Engineering and Engineering Management In terms of what I hope to instill in students, the Order of the Engineer says it best: As an Engineer, I pledge to practice integrity and fair dealing, tolerance and respect, and to uphold devotion to the standards and the dignity of my profession, conscious always that my skill carries with it the obligation to serve humanity by making the best use of Earth’s precious wealth." Biography Dr. Messimer joined UAH's ISEEM Department directly out of postdoctoral studies, and served as Associate Dean for the College of Engineering, Engineering Student Affairs from 2004 to 2011. On and off campus, Dr. Messimer engages in research projects and teams to continually drive innovation in complex organizational and manufacturing systems. She currently serves on the multi-institutional Integrated Product Team exploring advanced 3D printing technologies, and also collaborates with research institutions statewide on the Southern Alliance for Advanced Vehicle (SAAV) Manufacturing consortium. On campus, Dr. Messimer serves as the College of Engineering Representative for Women and Gender Studies. Dr. Messimer and three colleagues recently won Aerospace magazine's 2017 Best Paper Award for the article,"Design and Performance of Modular 3-D Printed Solid-Propellant Rocket Airframes."
