Prof. Dennis K. Lieu
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY, USA
Dennis Lieu is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and former Associate Dean of the College of Engineering at UC Berkeley. He received his BS, MS and D.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley in 1977, 1978 and 1982, respectively. After working for six years as a design engineer in industry, he returned to his alma mater and has been a member of its faculty for 30 years. He is the author or co-author of numerous articles on permanent magnet motor design and engineering graphics education, and is the lead author of Visualization, Modeling, and Graphics for Engineering Design (Cengage Publishers). His research interests are in the design of electro-mechanical devices and the design of sports equipment. He is a recipient of the UC Berkeley Distinguished Teaching Award. In 2008, he was awarded the Orthogonal Medal for his contributions to engineering graphics education. In 2015, he received the Distinguished Service Award from the Engineering Design Graphics Division of the ASEE. Prof. Lieu is currently engaged in the development of design courseware associated with the new Jacobs Design Institute at UC Berkeley.
