Elaine P. Scott, Dean Designee, School of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, Professor of Engineering, University of Washington Bothell
Dr. Elaine Scott came to the University of Washington (UW) Bothell in August 2012, and is now the inaugural Dean of the newly formed School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at the UW Bothell. The school brings together degree programs in computer science, engineering, mathematics, and biology to provide excellence in education in a collaborative environment.
Prior to joining UW Bothell, she was professor and director of engineering programs at Seattle Pacific University, where she worked to expand their engineering programs with a focus on project based learning. Before joining Seattle Pacific University in 2006, Dr. Scott served as a professor in the department of mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech, where she was responsible for the successful planning, development, and initial leadership of a new interdisciplinary, multi-institutional school, the Virginia Tech – Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences.
Dr. Scott holds bachelor and master degrees in agricultural engineering from the University of California, Davis, and doctoral degrees in agricultural engineering and in mechanical engineering from Michigan State University. Her research focuses on the characterization of heat transfer in complex materials, and she has authored more than 100 journal and conference papers. She was a recipient of Virginia Tech’s Philip & Sadie Sporn Award for Excellence in Teaching of Engineering Subjects and is a Fellow of the American Society for Mechanical Engineers.
The day of workshops begins with an exhibitor fair - learn about colleges and career options - and continental breakfast and ends with an ice cream social - get to know other women who share your interest in science and math.
"We know we need to increase the number of students obtaining degrees in STEM fields to provide a workforce for a healthy economy in the 21st century. It's a great time to be studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics!"
- Edmonds Community College math instructor Deann Leoni
