New Chair in Management, Engineering Leadership

Ingolf Krueger
“It's about recognizing a pressing problem in society, having the vision and engineering knowledge to solve it, and then leading development of a product that meets the market's needs – to completion.” – Ingolf Krueger.

Ingolf Krueger, a professor of computer science and engineering, has been appointed to the new Jacobs Family Chair in Management and Engineering Leadership. This endowed chair builds on a well-developed Jacobs School program to foster students' capacity for leadership and entrepreneurism as well as deep technical knowledge.

Krueger has taken on a leadership role in this effort, having served as the founding director of the Gordon Engineering Leadership Center and co-director of the Master of Advanced Study in Architecture-Based Enterprise Systems Engineering (AESE).

Krueger said his priorities for the chair include expanding joint curriculum offerings between the Jacobs School and the Rady School of Management, where he has an adjunct appointment. “I am humbled and grateful for this honor,” said Krueger.

This endowed chair is made possible by a generous gift from Irwin and Joan Jacobs.
