The College of Science, Engineering, and Technology (CSET) at Norfolk State University has a new Dean.
“On behalf of Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE), I would like to welcome and congratulate Dr. Michael Keeve on his appointment as the new Dean of the College of Science, Engineering and Technology at Norfolk State University,” wrote AMIE executive director Veronica Nelson in an email.
Dr. Keeve has served as associate dean since 2014.
“We look forward to working with Dean Keeve to develop partnerships with our AMIE members and the HBCU Engineering Schools,” Nelson said.
Currently, fifteen engineering departments at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are represented in AMIE (Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering), a coalition of black college ABET-accredited engineering programs and industry who see a diversified workforce as a competitive advantage.
Developed by technical professionals from engineering societies, ABET’s peer-review process adds value to academic programs in the technical disciplines, where quality, precision, and safety are of the utmost importance.
Keeve earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Hampton University and went on to graduate from the University of Virginia with a master’s in applied mathematics. Born in Lottsburg, Virginia in 1963, Keeve is the sixth of seven children of Robert and Gracie Keeve.
