Texas Tech has announced the professor that will now hold the position of a distinguished chair.

Tech Chancellor Kent Hance has announced the appointment of Chau-Chyun Chen as the new holder of the Jack Maddox Distinguished Engineering Chair in Sustainable Energy.

Chen is one of three National Academy Members on faculty at the Texas Tech Whitacre College of Engineering.

Election to the National Academy is considered one of the highest professional honors among engineers. Chen was elected in 2005 for his contributions to molecular thermodynamics and process modeling technology for designing industrial processes with complex chemical systems.

Chen received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the National Taiwan University in 1973 and his master’s and doctoral degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

He previously served as vice president of technology at AspenTech, a company he co-founded.

“I am looking forward to the extraordinary opportunity ahead of me and ahead of us,” said Chen. “By joining this community of scholars at Texas Tech University, I look forward to discovering and also sharing new knowledge for the goodness of humanity.”
