Karl Haapala, assistant professor in the School of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering and a specialist in sustainable design and manufacturing, was named the first Swigert Faculty Fellow. Funded by the Portland-based Swigert Foundation, this one-year appointment will support manufacturing engineering education and Haapala’s research program. The Swigert Foundation was established by Hank T. Swigert, former ESCO chairman, and his brother, Ernest C. Swigert.
