Nuclear Program Lecturer Passes Away

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering is sad to report the passing of Dr. Denny Ross on Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2007. Ross had been a lecturer in the nuclear engineering program at the University since 1990. He received a B.S. degree from Texas Western College, a M.S. degree in nuclear engineering from Southern Methodist University, a M.S. in mathematics from Texas Christian University and a Ph.D. in Engineering from Catholic University. He had a long and distinguished career with the Atomic Energy Commission and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), including many years in senior management positions in the NRC Safety Research Office and the Office of Analysis and Evaluation of Operational Data. He retired from the NRC in 1998. He loved teaching and working with students, and in addition to the many years as a lecturer with the nuclear engineering program on the UMCP campus, he also taught mathematics at Montgomery College from 1968-1990.
