Fulton College of Engineering and Technology at Brigham Young University , following his appointment to the Dean's office in May 2005. He received his BS in Chemical Engineering (1983) from Brigham Young University , Provo and his MS (1986) and PhD (1988) in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois , Urbana . He came to BYU directly from graduate school. Professor Harb has been actively involved in engineering education and has developed and delivered workshops for engineering educators. He co-authored a textbook for first-year students in chemical engineering that has been used for over a decade. He also co-authored a monograph on teaching engineering ( Teaching Through the Cycle ) . He directs research in Electrochemical Engineering, which includes a wide range of topics of technological importance that are governed by electrochemical phenomena.
Professor Harb and his wife Ruth are the parents of 6 children and the proud grandparents of two adorable grandsons.
