UND engineering students and faculty will begin next fall with a new dean.

UND Provost Greg Weisenstein recently appointed Hesham El-Rewini, chair of computer science at Southern Methodist University in Dallas to the position left vacant by Dean John Watson's retirement in late March, according to a university press release.

Watson had been engineering dean since 2001. He and his wife retired to Georgia.

Michael Mann, UND associate professor of chemical engineering, has served as interim dean since Watson's retirement and will remain in that post until Rewini takes office July 1.

Before coming to Southern Methodist in 2001, Rewini was a professor at the University of Nebraska at Omaha for 11 years. He is the co-author of five books on computer architecture and engineering, according to the press release.
