About Dr. George E. Dieter, Jr.

George passed on December 12, 2020, at age 92, during a brief stay in a hospital in Silver Spring, MD with prostate cancer. Pre-deceased by his wife, Nancy R. Dieter, of 67 years, and daughter Barbara J. Dieter, he is survived by his daughter, Carol Joan Dieter, along with brothers, nephews, and nieces.

Dr. Dieter was Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering, the Glenn L. Martin Institute Professor of Engineering, and the Dean of the A. James Clark School of Engineering from 1977-1994 at the University of Maryland.

Prior to this, he worked at DuPont. Afterward, served as the Department Head and Dean of Metallurgical Engineering at Drexel University. Then he was Professor of Engineering and the Director of the PRI at Carnegie Mellon University.

Additionally, Professor Dieter received the education award from ASM, TMS, and SME as well as the Lamme Medal, the highest award of ASEE. He has been chair of the Engineering Deans Council and President of ASEE. He was a member of the National Academy of Engineering and was the author of two books.

Dr. Dieter never stopped learning, leading, or giving. He established the University of Maryland Barbara J. Dieter Scholarship fund to support women in engineering, and the University of Maryland George E. Dieter, Jr. Materials Instructional Lab was named to remember all that he has done.
