Interim Dean, School of Engineering, Science, & Technology
Dr. Zdzislaw B. Kremens
After 15 years as Dean, Dr. Zdzislaw Kremens is back at the helm of the School of Engineering, Science, & Technology as interim dean. He retired from the deanship in 2013 and spent the past several years as associate vice president for Academic Affairs. In 2014, he was presented with one of CCSU’s highest honors, the Distinguished Service Award.
Dr. Kremens got his start at CCSU as a visiting professor from the Technical University of Wroclaw in Poland, where he had been a professor and vice president of academic and student affairs.
During his deanship at CCSU, Dr. Kremens was instrumental in strengthening and expanding the School’s academic offerings and increasing student enrollment from 600 in 1997 to its current level of almost 3,100. Among his accomplishments are the creation of the first Bachelor of Science programs in Mechanical and Civil Engineering and, not long after, the licensure and national accreditation for the two programs. He substantially expanded and improved laboratory space and invested heavily in student and faculty research projects. He also worked to create seamless pathways in engineering and technology between the community colleges and CCSU.
Over the years, he has authored or co-authored three books and more than 60 papers about the control, simulation, and analysis of electric power systems. A professor of electrical engineering, specializing in electric power systems, he taught courses in telecommunication, electronics, and electro-mechanical converters and has been active in many academic and scientific organizations, including the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
