Richard C. Benson is dean of the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech (2005-present). This is his twenty- sixth year of academic administration. Previously, at Penn State, he served as head of the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering (1998-05) and head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering (1995-98). At the University of Rochester he served as chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering (1992-95) and associate dean for graduate studies in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (1989- 92). Prior to beginning his university career, he spent three years with the Xerox Corporation as a technical specialist and project manager (1977-80).

Benson’s research at the University of Rochester was primarily focused on the mechanics of highly flexible structures. With sponsorship from the Eastman Kodak Company, Hewlett Packard, Bausch and Lomb, Xerox and others, he and his advisees modeled magnetic disks and tapes, paper sheets, soft contact lenses, photographic film and other easily deformed structures. Benson has received three significant honors from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). In 1984 he received the ASME Henry Hess Award, which honors a research publication by a young author. In 1998 he was made a Fellow of the ASME. In 2009 he was elected to a three-year term on the ASME Board of Governors (2010-13).

Benson’s teaching interests are in the fields of structural mechanics, design and applied mathematics. At the graduate level he has taught courses in structural mechanics, structural stability, plates and shells, elasticity and continuum mechanics. At the undergraduate level he has taught courses in advanced mechanical design, statics, mechanical systems, kinematics, complex variables and boundary value problems. In 1981 he was honored as the top teacher in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Rochester. At Penn State he co-taught, with a partner from the Women in Engineering Program, first-year seminars on toy making and dancing robots.
