David A. Koonce is an Associate Dean in the Graduate College at Ohio University and an Associate Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the Russ College of Engineering and Technology. He holds three degrees from Louisiana State University, including a Doctorate of Philosophy in Engineering Science, a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering, and a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. His dissertation focused on: “An Integrated Multiple Manufacturing Data Source Blackboard Control Architecture”.

In addition to his teaching, Dr. Koonce applied his engineering skills as a software engineer for swissinfo / Swiss Radio International in Bern, Switzerland. He has also represented the Institute of Industrial Engineers as the regional vice president, and he is also a member of the American Society for Engineering Education, Alpha Phi Mu – Industrial Engineering Honor Society and Tau Beta Pi – Engineering Honor Society.

“We started this program to fulfill a request from a population of students looking for technical expertise to apply directly to their workplace,” said Dr. Koonce. “We didn’t design it from what the faculty wanted to teach, but from what the students needed in terms of skills set, and then we brought in the expertise to teach these subjects. This degree is very customer-focused.”

Dr. Koonce currently teaches courses focusing in engineering statistics, data analysis and integration, design of experiments, information systems engineering, database information systems, and system modeling. He focuses on the processes of software integration, computer integrated manufacturing and data mining, which ultimately lead engineers to build better systems resulting in more cost-effective and more reliable results.
