    Experience

    ADMINISTRATIVE

    7/00–6/05    Assistant Dean, Faculty of Engineering, Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S.

    The main responsibility as Assistant Dean was to provide leadership in the:

    • Development and implementation of the academic structure of the co-op engineering programs and combined inter-faculty programs.
    • Preparation for the internal and external reviews of the Faculty of Engineering.
    • Scheduling and preparation for the reviews of Programs, Departments and Centres and the establishment of governance policy of the Faculty of Engineering.
    • Establishment of relations with industry, professional, and scientific associations for collaboration and fundraising.
    • Promotion of the Faculty of Engineering to the public with emphasis to under- represented groups.
    • Development, in collaboration with the Associate Deans, of alternative  delivery systems of undergraduate and graduate curricula for optimizing the   teaching loads.
    • Other duties as assigned by the Dean.

    Accomplishments:

    • Coordinated and prepared the successful application to the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) for all undergraduate engineering   programs. The application resulted in achieving unconditionally the maximum accreditation term (6 years).
    • Coordinated and prepared the self- study for the Dalhousie University Senate review of the Faculty of Engineering.  The resulted Senate Review Report   was very favourable to the achievements and the stability of the Faculty of Engineering.
    • Prepared for the approval of the Faculty Council the “Handbook of the Rules and Procedures” which establishes the governance policy of the Faculty of Engineering.  Continue to update, amend and improve the Handbook.
    • Developed with the help of the Director, Facilities management, the first ever space study of the Faculty of Engineering which resulted in a plan for space development.
    • Directed, as Chair of the Space Committee, the successful construction of the Biological Engineering “N” Building and continued the efforts to complete the internal structure of the building.
    • Developed with the help of the Director, Facilities Management, the options for Engineering campus redevelopment to create the space for the future needs of the Faculty of Engineering. These options will be used for the fundraising on the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of the Engineering education in Nova Scotia.
    • Organized and Chaired the meetings for the reorganization of the Department structure of the Faculty of Engineering.

    7/97–7/00      Vice-Chair, Dalhousie University Senate, Dalhousie University, Halifax, N.S.

    The Dalhousie University Senate is the governing academic body of the university.  It comprises 73 ex-officio and elected members from the Faculties of the university.  The three officers of the Senate are the Chair, Vice-Chair and the Secretary and are exempted from the bargaining unit of the union.  The Senate, as the elected governing body of the university, approves new programs, oversees the review of existing programs and ensures that comprehensive budget policies are followed.

    • My tenure in the Dalhousie University Senate (1997-2000) has provided me with the opportunity to obtain a strong understanding of how the university works and to exercise fairness, equity and openness.   I have also developed a better understanding and appreciation of the position of Faculties other than Engineering, within the university community.
    • As Vice-Chair of the Senate of Dalhousie University, I was in charge of organizing and carrying, through the Senate Academic Priorities and Budget Committee (SAPBC), the reviews of the Faculties of the university and other affiliated universities.
    • During my tenure, I have overseen the reviews of the Faculties of Medicine, Science, Arts and Social Sciences, Graduate Studies, and I initiated the review of the Faculties of Architecture and Engineering.  These reviews involve Faculty self studies, submissions and interviews to review committees, visit, by invitation, of external referees who advise the Senate on the status of the specific Faculty in the Canadian and International Academia.  The Senate accepts the final report and its recommendations are implemented within 18 months.
    • I was also responsible in overseeing the reviews of the Institutions affiliated with Dalhousie that offer Dalhousie degrees.  During my term as Vice-Chair, we conducted the review of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, and, the King’s College. I also had an opportunity to participate as a committee member in the review of the Department of Chemistry.
    • Furthermore, my participation in, and occasional chairing of the Senate and the Senate Academic Priorities and Budget Committee (SAPBC), has resulted in enhancing my knowledge on the academic and budgetary approval of academic programs as well as the management of multifaculty and multidisciplinary programs, which, I feel, will become very important in the future.

    1993- 98   Visiting Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering & Institute of Chemical Engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes, University of Patras, Patras, Greece.

     During the summer months of 1993, I visited the Institute and initiated a research program on the electrodeposition of refractory and rare earth metals.

    Research

    The research interests of Prof. G.J. Kipouros lie in the fields of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering - both in fundamental science and engineering applications, in the field of value-added metallurgy, and in the area of Chemistry and Processing of Materials.

    Primary interest is the electrochemical engineering of molten salt electrolysis.  Specific areas of fundamental research are the thermodynamic, electrochemical and spectroscopic properties of reactive metal halide systems as apply to the production of the metals or coating of the metals.  Recycling of reactive metals. Utilization of minerals in metal matrix composites.  Metals of interest include the light, refractory and rare earth groups.

    Electrochemical aspects of copper and nickel production from aqueous solutions.  Application of potentiodynamic techniques, cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy in the investigation of passivation and corrosion of materials.

    A major interest is also the development and processing of powder metallurgy (P/M) light metals alloys as a means to sustainability of parts manufacturing. Modeling of processes used in the production of P/M automotive components as well as study of mechanical properties are areas of interest. Surface engineering and its role in the corrosion protection of reactive metals P/M alloys is examined.

    Secondary interest in the engineering applications include the development of electrochemical sensors for use in the process control and optimization of high temperature chemical processes.

    In the area of materials science and engineering the interest is in the study of the chemical stability of the interface between the second phase modification agent and the metal matrix in the composites and powder metallurgy alloys. The application of potentiodynamic techniques, cyclic voltammetry and impedance spectroscopy in the investigation of the corrosion of boride coatings on the sufrace of powder metallurgy alloys.

    Also the application of the scientific principles in the study and the development of phase-change materials. As a corollary of these studies the electrodeposition of metal matrix composites is also under investigation.

    The primary value-added metallurgy component of the research explores the potential application of certain naturally-occurring industrial mineral fibres/whiskers/particulates as reinforcement in metal-matrix composites.  The use of certain minerals benification wastes as additives to metallurgical processes or as reinforcement in metal-matrix composites are also investigated. A secondary component of the research interests refer to the use of minerals in the development of inexpensive phase-change materials (PCM) for thermal storage.
