Wynn C. Stirling new dean of BYU Graduate Studies

Brigham Young University Academic Vice President John Tanner announced the appointment of Wynn C. Stirling as the new dean of Graduate Studies.

A professor of electrical and computer engineering at BYU, Stirling is the author or co-author of more than 70 publications. He is co-author of the Prentice-Hall graduate-level text, “Mathematical Methods and Algorithms for Signal Processing” (2000), and is the author of the Cambridge University Press monograph, “Satisficing Games and Decision-Making: with Applications to Engineering and Computer Science” (2003).

“Professor Stirling brings a strong academic record to his new position as dean of Graduate Studies, as well as long experience on the Graduate Council,” said Tanner. “The latter has given him broad understanding of graduate education at BYU. He is committed to BYU’s mission of sponsoring graduate programs that are excellent in quality, though limited in number, and which serve to strengthen our undergraduate programs.”

In addition to his academic experience, Stirling was responsible for the development of multi-vehicle trajectory reconstruction capabilities for ESL, Inc., in Sunnyvale, Calif. He also was with Rockwell International Corporation during the early 1970s.

Stirling received the Honors bachelor’s degree magna cum laude in mathematics and a master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Utah. He was granted a doctoral degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University. Stirling is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Tau Beta Pi.
