The Department of Mechanical Engineering is praising the careers of three faculty and staff members that are retiring. Professor Emeritus Yung-Cheng “Y.C.” Lee retired in summer 2021, while Professor Jana Milford is set to retire in August 2022. Shirley Chessman, an adjunct professor in the department and the ME Lab Engineer at the Idea Forge, is also retiring this summer.
While the department is sad to see each of them leave, their impact on colleagues and students will continue once they move on to retirement. Click each of their photos to read about their careers, as we celebrate their work and accomplishments.
