About Kirk D. Hagen
KIRK D. HAGEN is a professor at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. He has taught introductory-level engineering courses and upper-division thermal science courses at WSU since 1993. He received his B.S. degree in physics from Weber State College and his M.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Utah State University, after which he worked as a thermal designer/analyst in the aerospace and electronics industries. After several years of engineering practice, he resumed his formal education, earning his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the University of Utah. Hagen is the author of an undergraduate heat transfer text. Having drawn upon his industrial and teaching experience, he strongly believes that engineering students must develop effective analytical problem solving abilities. His book, Introduction to Engineering Analysis, was written to help beginning engineering students learn a systematic approach to engineering analysis.
