LEMONT FURNACE, Pa. — David B. Meredith, associate professor of engineering at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, has retired after 41 years of service. He has taught engineering and technology courses at Penn State Fayette since 1979.
“David Meredith has so many accomplishments at Penn State Fayette—including awards for teaching, scholarship, service, and advising from the campus and the College of Engineering, as well as the University-wide Faculty Recognition Award for Women in the Sciences and Engineering (WISE),” said Chancellor Charles Patrick. “His contributions to the campus and the community have been significant and invaluable. We will greatly miss David on campus.”
Meredith holds a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from The Ohio State University and a master of science degree in energy conversion from Colorado State University, where he completed a fellowship with Eastman Kodak.
Early in his career, he worked as a technical support engineer at Procter & Gamble, assisting with thermal systems design and pollution control engineering. While teaching a summer course at Kent State University at Tuscarawas, his students installed the first solar water-heating system on a two-year college campus in Ohio.
