Mohammad A. Zahraee, Ph.D., P.E.

Associate Dean, College of Technology

Introduction

Zahraee chaired two departments for over 11 years and has served as Associate Dean and Interim Dean of College of Technology. He has been PI or Co-PI for contracts and Grants valued over $5 Mil.

I love consulting with other institutions on program assessment and ABET accreditation. It has been fun and culturally rewarding as I have done it at both national and international levels.
