Dr. Stephen U. Egarievwe is the Associate Dean for Research in the School of Engineering and Professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering. He is also Director of the Center for Research and Education in Digital Engineering (CREDE). Dr. Egarievwe received the B.Sc. (Honors) degree in Engineering Physics with Nuclear Engineering option from Obafemi Awolowo University, an M.Sc. in Physics & Astronomy with focus in Solar Energy from University of Nigeria, M.S. in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Tennessee, M.S. in Computer Science with focus in Operating Systems and Robotics from Vanderbilt University, M.A. in Physics with focus in Nuclear Detectors from Fisk University, M.S. in Computer Science with focus in Software Engineering and Human-Computer Interface from Nova Southeastern University, and Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Alabama A&M University. His research interests and expertise are:

  • Nuclear Safety and Security: Room-Temperature Nuclear Detectors, UAV-Based Remote Nuclear Radiation Survey, Nuclear Safeguards and Nonproliferation, Nuclear Cybersecurity, and Remediation of Uranium Contaminated Areas.
  • STEM Education, Research, and Workforce Development: Advancing Research Capacity at HBCUs and other Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), Curriculum and Workforce Development, Active Learning in STEM, Grant Proposal Development, and Large-Scale Collaboration and Consortium Development.
  • Digital Engineering: Digital Twins, Simulation and Data Virtualization, and Digital Education.

Dr. Egarievwe is an SLAC Scholar and ABET-IDEAL Scholar. He has published over 150 journal and conference articles including book chapters. He is a co-winner of 2009 R&D 100 Award (for top 100 scientific/engineering products in Research and Development). He is a member of IEEE.

Some of Dr. Egarievwe’s technical community services included serving in Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) External Review Committee, in Stony Brook University "Career Path" Diversity Program, and in the Independent Review Committee for DOE/NNSA-funded projects at Brookhaven National Laboratory. He serves as a reviewer for over 10 world-class technical journals.

Dr. Egarievwe is the Partnership Coordinator for the Interdisciplinary Consortium for Research and Educational Access in Science and Engineering (InCREASE), a consortium of universities whose mission is to promote research and education in Minority-Serving Institutions, especially as regards increasing their utilization of national user facilities, thereby increasing the numbers of women and those from historically underrepresented groups who pursue science and engineering careers.
