Dr. Timothy Jacobs has been appointed head of the Department of Multidisciplinary Engineering at Texas A&M University. The appointment is effective July 1, 2021.

Since September 2020, Jacobs has served as the interim department head for multidisciplinary engineering. He is also a professor and the Steve Brauer, Jr. ’02 Faculty Fellow of the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Jacobs began his career at Texas A&M in 2006 after completing his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan.

He has held numerous positions in the college, including co-director of the Institute of Engineering Education Innovation, as well as director of undergraduate programs for the mechanical engineering department.

Before he was appointed interim department head, Jacobs led the College of Engineering’s initiative to grow the Interdisciplinary Engineering Program for Graduate and Undergraduate Studies, playing an instrumental role in the program’s journey to becoming a department. 

His research interests take an interdisciplinary approach and focus on internal combustion engines, including fuels, emissions, after treatment, performance and efficiency considerations.

He is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and received the ASME Special Recognition Service Award for services to the Internal Combustion Engine Division in 2015 and 2016. Jacobs has received other awards, including the Montague Center for Teaching Excellence Scholars Award and the Eppright University Professorship of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence.
