Dr. Dolan joined the faculty of the SDSM&T in 1981 after completing a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota and a Post Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Duisburg in Germany. He has taught courses in thermodynamics, dynamics, controls and manufacturing. He enjoys teaching in all of these areas, but especially in vehicle development courses such as IC Engines and Vehicle Dynamics . He has worked in industry for General Motors and Onan on engine development and at MTS on manufacturing control system development. He has co-authored over 30 technical papers, six of which have been published in the last three years. Dr. Dolan is also the co-inventor on six patents.
