Life history interview conducted by Chris Petersen.
November 13, 2015
Milo Koretsky (b. 1962) has been a member of the Chemical Engineering faculty at Oregon State since his arrival in Corvallis in 1992. Koretsky is recognized internationally as a pioneering scholar of engineering education whose textbook, Engineering and Chemical Thermodynamics, has been widely praised for its conceptual approach to the teaching of thermodynamics. At OSU, Koretsky has also been instrumental in the development of virtual learning modules that provide student engineers with practical experience that closely simulates the environment that they will encounter in the workplace. Koretsky has likewise been closely associated with OSU's MECOP internship program for the entirety of his career, and has been instrumental in its growth over the decades. His interview focuses on his personal development as an engineer and educator; his institutional memories of Chemical Engineering and MECOP at OSU; and his continuing efforts to rethink and improve engineering education.
