Entrepreneurship In Engineering Seminar


The Department of Mechanical Engineering presents a lecture by Dr. Larry Bickle entitled 'Entrepreneurship in Engineering:  Managing People.' Dr. Bickle, a retired Co-Founder and Partner in Haddington Ventures, a Private Equity firm with over $500 million under management, will discuss the individual entrepreneur’s responsibility to both hire the “right” people and to proactively create the “right” culture. Based on real world experience and examples from Dr. Bickle’s 30+ year career as a “serial entrepreneur” involved in ten successful technical start ups (and several unsuccessful ones!), the lecture takes place in the Centennial Engineering Center Auditorium from 3:30 – 4:30 PM on Friday, March 14.
 
 

Nick Flor Chosen For Windows Development

An avatar of Dean Doug Brown created using Kinect.
 
Professor Nick V. Flor was selected as one of only 500 developers chosen worldwide to participate in Microsoft’s expanded  Kinect for Windows V2 developers program.  The Kinect combines a high-def camera, high-fidelity microphones, and proprietary software to sense the body movements, facial expressions, and sounds of up to 6 people simultaneously, and to create 3D virtual representations of actual environments. 

Dr. Flor will use the Kinect as part of his NSF-sponsored research, developing immersive apps and 3D virtual worlds aimed at educating the public on sustainable and renewable energy.  The Kinect V2 for Windows will be released to the general public sometime in Q4 2014. Dr. Flor invites members of the community to contact him regarding possible community research collaborations involving the use of the Kinect V2 in business and health.

A Message From Dean Brown

 

The United States constitution in the first amendment guarantees us the right of free speech. It is perhaps our most precious right, as the exercise of free speech is the essential antidote to abuse of power. In academia, the right of free speech is extended more fully into the workplace through the protections afforded by tenure. Tenure gives a right to those who have earned it to espouse views and to pursue avenues of intellectual exploration that may be diametrically opposed to the position of academic administration. This freedom is a great strength of academia.

But with this freedom comes responsibility, responsibility to be civil and respectful, especially to one’s colleagues. If another colleague disagrees with your position, it does not make them ‘a liar.’ If a funding proposal is advanced that one does not favor, it should not be characterized as ‘thievery.’ We should strive to disagree without being disagreeable. It is important to preserve our personal relationships so that we may achieve our common goal of excellence for Anderson.

President Frank recently issued a reminder of UNM Faculty Handbook’s Section C09, titled “Respectful Campus.” I urge all of us to refresh our acquaintance with this policy and to commit to maintaining a positive and constructive atmosphere at Anderson.

A Message From Dean Brown


Legendary San Francisco Chronicle journalist Herb Caen wrote of being derided for having a job that required him to write only one column per day. He responded that his day began with a cup of coffee at his computer in front of a window with a view of the Bay. Then he would “open his veins and bleed.”

Creativity cannot be summoned on demand. It geminates and is nurtured in a fertile environment. President Frank’s Innovate ABQ is designed to create such an environment. Innovate ABQ will provide a live-work-play community where entrepreneurs, UNM professors, and students will collaborate on learning experiences that provide opportunities for our students and that develop promising business ventures.

New Mexico is critically dependent on developing new and thriving businesses to bring jobs and opportunities. UNM is committed to play a leading role in this effort.
