Happy Retirement for Two MEMS Faculty Members
The Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science department celebrated the retirements of two full professors this year at the faculty meeting last Friday.
• Anthony DeArdo: Deardo spent 43 years teaching at Pitt, plus one year as an emeritus professor. He served as director of Pitt’s Basic Metals Processing Research Institute (BAMPRI). He has received numerous awards, included one at the Prof. A.J. DeArdo Symposium on Microalloyed Steels, International Conf. Thermec, Las Vegas, 2013.
• Gerald Meier: Meier served 49 years at Pitt, plus one year as an emeritus professor. He published two successful books, Introduction to the High-Temperature Oxidation of Metals in 2006 and Thermodynamics of Surfaces and Interfaces: Concepts in Inorganic Materials in 2014.
The MEMS department would like to congratulate Tony and Jerry on successful careers!
