The university this week said Robertson will leave the post once a successor is chosen after more than 11 years leading the engineering program. He will continue as a faculty member in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, according to the release.

“At its core, the practice of engineering focuses on innovations that make the world a better place, and I hope that people remember my tenure as dean for impact that centers around people,” Robertson said in a statement. “I am profoundly grateful for the privilege of leading this extraordinary college.”
