GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 29, 2016) – William Woodham will join the Bob Jones University faculty this fall as an assistant professor in the Department of Engineering in the Natural Science Division of the College of Arts and Science. Woodham previously served as a senior survivability engineer for Survice Engineering Company headquartered in Belcamp, Maryland.
“We’re looking forward to having Will join our engineering department this fall,” says Dr. Renae Wentworth, dean of the College of Arts and Science. “He brings to his faculty position extensive experience as a mechanical engineer in a variety of industries, so his students will have a wonderful opportunity to benefit from his real-world expertise.”
Woodham earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering (1995) from the University of Florida and a MS in Product Development (2003) from the University of Detroit Mercy.
Woodham has extensive engineering experience, having served as a compartment integration engineer for General Motors Company, LLC, a senior engineer specialist for General Dynamics Land Systems, a vehicle package engineer for Ford Motor Company, an application engineer for Engineering Animation Inc., a product design engineer for Sundberg Ferar, and a product design engineer for Tredegar Molded Products.
In addition to his professional work, Woodham is an active member in his church and a small group Bible study leader. He founded and volunteered as the coach for a high school robotics club and has served as a member of the BJU Engineering Industrial Board.
“When I was entering college, BJU did not have an ABET accredited engineering program,” says Woodham. “Now BJU is ABET accredited, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to join the BJU engineering faculty at this exciting time of growth for the program.”
A resident of Greenville, Woodham and his wife have four sons, two of which have graduated from BJU and two are current students. Woodham enjoys fishing, hiking, robotics, and 3D printing. He is an avid Bruins soccer fan and enjoys watching two of his sons play on the team.
