MSOE’s Leadership

MSOE is under the leadership and guidance of President Hermann Viets, Ph.D., the MSOE Board of Regents, and Corporation members. The relationship between industry and the university are a hallmark of MSOE.

Comprised of representatives of business, industry, government and education, the Board of Regents governs the operations and the future planning of the university through a series of standing committees.

Hermann Viets, Ph.D.
President, Milwaukee School of Engineering
(1991 – present)

Dr. Hermann Viets is only the fourth president in the history of MSOE. He received a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering, and both a master’s degree and Ph.D. in astronautics, all from Polytechnic University in New York City and Farmingdale, Long Island. He was a visiting scientist, aerospace engineer and research group leader for Wright Patterson Air Force Base Aerospace Research Laboratories in Dayton, Ohio; lecturer at the Von Karman Institute in Brussels, Belgium; and a research associate at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn, N.Y. His other academic experience includes serving as dean of engineering at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston; associate dean for research and professor at West Virginia University, Morgantown; and professor of engineering at Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio.

Viets’ vision for MSOE is to remain at the forefront of professional education with an emphasis on both theory and technology coupled with an intensity of appropriate laboratory experience and career practice. He has worked to broaden the academic scope of the university while maintaining its “applications-oriented” philosophy and at the same time supported those initiatives that promote a well-rounded college experience.
