Biography

J. Richard Phillips was the Engineering Clinic director for 17 years and transitioned the Clinic into a sustainable program that is now integral to the overall Harvey Mudd Engineering curriculum.

He also was directly involved in the establishment of Clinic programs in other colleges and universities. The program has now extended to other departments in the college, influencing fields outside of engineering as well.

Phillips also was instrumental in the development of the Experimental Engineering Lab to give students a deeper and more intuitive grasp of concepts they learn in their theory classes. Phillips is Professor of Engineering Emeritus at Harvey Mudd College.
