Milligan College announced today that a West Point professor will be joining the ranks of Milligan College’s new engineering program, which launches this fall. Dr. David Hampton will teach mechanical engineering, starting in the Fall 2017 semester.

The program, offering mechanical and electrical engineering majors, is led by Dr. Greg Harrell and housed in the college’s B.D. Phillips Building where new engineering labs already have been constructed.

Hampton taught in the civil and mechanical engineering department at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point for over a decade and previously taught at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He served several years as an officer in the U.S. Navy (submarine force) and completed multiple summer research fellowships with various NASA centers, the Army Research Lab and at Cambridge University.
