WELCOME DEAN MICHELE MARCOLONGO!

Villanova University welcomes Dr. Michele Marcolongo, the new Drosdick Endowed Dean in the College of Engineering. Dr. Marcolongo’s engineering career spans more than three decades and encompasses roles as an academician, researcher, administrator, inventor and entrepreneur.

She says, “It is a tremendous honor and privilege for me to be named Drosdick Endowed Dean of the College of Engineering. The Villanova College of Engineering is outstanding in its education of world-class engineers who are technically strong and who have a broad liberal arts background to contextualize real-world solutions for the needs of society. This approach, along with the creative research and scholarship, is what drew me to Villanova. I look forward to working with the community to continue to innovate Villanova’s contributions to our world.”
