Dr. Miguel A. Gonzalez earned his Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Houston in 1995. He currently serves as the Dean in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at The University of Texas-Pan American.

Dr. Gonzalez has been able to obtain more than $10 million in funding for his academic activities from various sources including NASA, The National Science Foundation, The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s Advanced Research Program, U. S. Department of Commerce, The Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center, and The U. S. Department of Labor. He has developed simulators for labs and healthcare providers together with integrated logistics support systems for Advanced Cardiac Life Support. One of his current interests is in the area of manufacturing systems for rapid product design and development in international production. An extension of this work is the current effort that established The University of Texas-Pan American Rapid Response Manufacturing Center in a consortium of academic institutions, economic development corporations, industry, local, state, and federal governments.
