Vishwanath (Vish) Prasad will assume the position of interim dean of the College of Engineering at Wichita State University, effective Monday, Jan. 28.

Former dean of the college, Zulma Toro-Ramos, stepped down recently to become provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Prasad comes to WSU from the University of North Texas where he served as vice president for research and economic development.

Prior to his time at North Texas, Prasad was dean of the College of Engineering at Florida International University.

According to Interim Provost Keith Pickus, Prasad was chosen to lead the college during this transitional period because of his extensive administrative experience and knowledge of engineering education and research.

Prasad will serve until a permanent dean is hired, following a national search for the position. The search will be led by Ron Matson, interim dean of the Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the process will get under way in the coming weeks.
