"I am honored and humbled to be serving as Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering, which is truly a world-class institution. Together, we are taking the Jacobs School of Engineering to the next level, in terms of research, education and positive impact on society."
– Albert P. Pisano
On Sept. 1, 2013, Pisano joined the Jacobs School of as Professor and Dean. He holds the Walter J. Zable Chair in Engineering. (About the Vision, Mission and Goals of the Jacobs School.)
Pisano is a highly accomplished mechanical engineer who, in 2001, was elected to the National Academy of Engineering for contributions to the design, fabrication, commercialization, and educational aspects of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
A self-described technology polymath, Pisano's research is driven by his passion for developing, mastering and advancing technologies in order to solve problems. One of Pisano's new projects is development of an inexpensive yet rugged sensor system that will predict landslides in the Philippines, a country where landslides are a deadly, national problem.

At UC San Diego, Pisano holds faculty appointments in the departments of mechanical and aerospace engineering and electrical and computer engineering.
