Dr. Ron DeLap
Dean of the School of Engineering
After graduating from Midland High School, I attended college for a few years before I married my high school sweetheart and enlisted in the Air Force as a radar repair technician. A wonderful Air Force career followed, punctuated by breaks to attend college and earn multiple degrees in engineering. As a senior research engineer in the Air Force, I was blessed to be able to work on multiple high-tech systems, including satellite radar, navigation and data collection systems.
