Zorica Pantic


Zorica Pantic

Zorica Pantic, born circa 1951 in the former Yugoslavia, is a college administrator and professor of electrical engineering. In 2005 she was appointed the fourth president of Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston.

Pantic was previously the founding Dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio and, for four years, Director of the School of Engineering at San Francisco State University.

Education and Affiliations

Zorica Pantic received her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Nis, Yugoslavia (Serbia), in 1975, 1978, and 1982, respectively. She has 30 years of academic and teaching experience. She served on the engineering faculty of the University of Nis (1975-1984), SFSU (1989-2001), and UTSA (2001-2004). She was a Fulbright Fellow and a Visiting Scientist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 1984-1989. She has published more than 80 journal and conference papers.

Pantic is a Senior Member of IEEE and served on various committees of the [http://www.ewh.ieee.org/soc/emcs/IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society] (EMC-S) until 2004 [http://www.ieee.org/organizations/pubs/newsletters/emcs/winter05/bod.html] . She served on the EMC-S Board of Directors and as Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary of the Santa Clara Valley EMC-S Chapter. She is also a member of the American Society for Engineering Education and serves on the ASEE Projects Board, President's Award Committee, and Contact Committee.

She is a member of the IEEE Women in Engineering, Society of Women Engineers, and American Society for Higher Education, as well as a member of the Engineering Deans Council and the EDC Public Policy Committee. She served on various National Academy of Engineering panels and committees. Pantic received the Woman Entrepreneur of the Year award from the San Antonio Women Chamber of Commerce and is a graduate of the Leadership America program.

Career

At University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA)

As the Engineering Dean at UTSA, she spearheaded the College of Engineering's and UTSA's efforts to become a flagship university in the state of Texas and a top-tier research university in the U.S.

During her tenure, the College started three new PhD engineering programs (Biomedical, Electrical, and Environmental) and one MS program (Computer Engineering). The college created a new Department of Biomedical Engineering and a Center for Response and Security Engineering and Technology, doubled the number of faculty, and increased its research funding tenfold to $7 million in active grants.

Pantic also secured $2.5 million in federal funding to establish a Material Science and Engineering Laboratory at the former Kelly Air Force Base. Through strategic partnerships with various state and national agencies, national companies and small businesses, she raised more than $5 million in various donations and equipment grants.

She revived relationships with engineering alumni and was instrumental in securing a $250,000 endowment donation, the single largest alumni gift to the College and UTSA. In her last four years, the College increased its enrollment by 75%, being especially effective in attracting female students (83% enrollment increase) and minorities (50% of students are Hispanics).

At San Francisco State University

While at SFSU, Pantic improved the engineering programs in quality, size and visibility, and, as a result -- for the first time in SFSU history – the programs were ranked among the top 50 undergraduate programs by "US News & World Report".

She established a Partnership for Engineering Education that resulted in 30 percent enrollment increase and played a crucial role in shaping and bringing to life a partnership with a neighboring community college to offer upper-division engineering courses there.

This project now serves as a blueprint for cooperation between the 23-campus California State University (CSU) system, of which San Francisco State is a member, and California's community colleges. Through a partnership with the local chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a major grant from the National Science Foundation, she established a Center for Applied Electromagnetics that supports undergraduate and graduate research.

Pantic was active in state-level fundraising for engineering programs. She worked with fellow CSU Engineering deans on the successful $10-million California Workforce Initiative to support strategic disciplines such as agriculture, biotechnology, computer science, engineering, and nursing. She also served on the Executive Committee of the Texas Engineering and Technology Consortium, a private-public partnership that raised $8 million to increase the number of engineering and computer science graduates in the state of Texas.

President of Wentworth Institute

Pantic was announced as Wentworth Institute of Technology’s fourth president on June 8th, 2005. She took office August 1, 2005 and is the first female engineer to head an institute of technology [http://www.wit.edu/president/bio.html] . She was formally installed as president of the institute on April 5, 2006 at her [http://www.wit.edu/inauguration/webcast.htm inauguration ceremony] .
