Morgan’s Former Engineering Dean Earns Multiple Honors

Responsibilities and achievements continue to mount for Eugene M. DeLoatch, Ph.D., who retired from Morgan’s Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. School of Engineering as dean emeritus in June. Dr. DeLoatch was named the 2017 Black Engineer of the Year at the BEYA STEM Conference in Washington, D.C., in February. In September, he was inducted into the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame, during a ceremony held in Atlanta, Ga. Later this year, in October, the BEYA Alumni Association named him the association’s national chairman.

Dr. DeLoatch, a 1959 graduate of Tougaloo College, has had a stellar career in engineering education. After leaving Tougaloo, he went to Howard University, where he served on the faculty for 24 years, first as a professor of engineering then as chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering. He was recruited to Morgan State University in 1984 to launch the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. School of Engineering, as the school’s inaugural dean. During his 33 years at the helm there, he is credited with producing more black engineers than any other person in the history of U.S. higher education.

Congratulations to Dr. Eugene DeLoatch, a true legend in his field, who continues to add to his legacy through service.
