Product design, development experts named faculty co-directors of MIT’s System Design and Management Program

by Pat Hale, Director, SDM Fellows Program

MIT’s System Design and Management (SDM) program has two new faculty co-directors, both experts in the field of product design and development. Professor Steven D. Eppinger and Professor Warren P. Seering will represent MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT School of Engineering respectively. Both are renowned for their cutting-edge research, as well as for their commitment to education.

On June 29 they will join us for lunch at the MIT Faculty Club to attend the SDM town hall meeting and to spend time with our students.

SDM is about design and development, and there are few at MIT with more experience in these disciplines than Steve and Warren—we are fortunate to have them as our new leaders. All of us here in SDM are thrilled that they have joined us and look forward to working with them both.

With this, SDM is passing another milestone of sorts, as we designate separate faculty co-directors for SDM from MIT Sloan and the School of Engineering and keep the original team for LGO. We all thank Professors Tom Allen and David Simchi-Levi for their hard work and support in evolving SDM and wish them the best as they continue to be the co-directors for LGO and in all of their endeavors. Their support of MIT’s System Design and Management program was much appreciated and we are grateful for their leadership and their service.

Professor Steven D. Eppinger

Professor Warren P. Seering
