Director Named for Oregon Master of Software Engineering Program

PORTLAND - Richard H. Lytle, a Pennsylvania educator and consultant, has been named as the new director of the Oregon Master of Software Engineering Program offered by the Oregon College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Lytle is former dean and professor of information science at Drexel University, Philadelphia, and director of information resource management for the Smithsonian Institution. He has recently served as director of education and training programs for the CoreTech Consulting Group, King of Prussia, Pa.

He earned his undergraduate degree from Rice University; masters degrees from Washington University and the University of Maryland; and his doctoral degree from the University of Maryland.

In his new position, Lytle will head the ongoing development and delivery of a unique public-private educational program designed for working professionals and others specifically interested in software engineering careers.

The program, now still in its first full year of operation, provides specialized courses and a professional degree offered jointly by Portland State University, the Oregon Graduate Institute, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. Classes are taught evenings at the CAPITAL Center in Beaverton to better accommodate enrollment by working high-technology professionals in Washington County. Distance delivery is planned for other Oregon locations in 2000.
