College leadership

Michael Pishko, an accomplished chemical engineer and experienced administrator at Texas A&M University, stepped into his role as dean of the University of Wyoming’s College of Engineering and Applied Science in March 2015.

“Where I see us going is working hard to execute the UW Tier-1 Engineering Initiative because we have a duty to the state of Wyoming to fill the goals of that initiative–to the citizens of Wyoming and the industries that employ them,” Pishko says. “That’s something we need to spend more time on, engaging in innovative research programs that directly benefit the state. Finding ways of getting value-added products out of resources besides just energy. There are lots of things that can be done to create new economies in Wyoming.”

Prior to UW

  • Professor of chemical engineering and biomedical engineering at Texas A&M
  • Led workforce development and education programs for Texas A&M Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing
  • Worked on academic, workforce training and K-12 outreach initiatives at National Center for Therapeutics Manufacturing at Texas A&M
  • Extensive experience with private industry, including holding numerous patents in the field of biomedical engineering
  • Before going to Texas A&M, was on the chemical engineering faculty of Pennsylvania State University
  • Received his Ph.D. (1992) from the University of Texas at Austin, and his master’s (1987) and bachelor’s (1986) degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia, all in chemical engineering
