Professional Experience

Dr. Grant joined the faculty at the University of Oklahoma in December of 1994 as Director of the School of Industrial Engineering and Southwestern Bell Professor. Since his arrival, he has been actively involved and all aspects of the Department as well as in the startup of the Center for the Study of Wireless Electromagnetic Compatibility. Prior to joining the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Grant was with the National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C., where he directed programs in Production Systems, Engineering Design, and Operations Research. Before that, he was director of the Measurement and Manufacturing Systems Laboratory with Hewlett Packard in HP Labs. In that capacity, he was responsible for developing the five to ten year vision of HP's manufacturing requirements. Before joining HP, Dr. Grant was involved in the startup and development of two Industrial Engineering Software businesses, Pritsker Corporation and FACTROL.
