Biography

Biography

Dr. Teik C. Lim was appointed as the interim President of The University of Texas at Arlington in Spring of 2020 in the midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Dr. Lim joined UTA as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs in Summer of 2017. He is also a professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

Dr. Lim’s career has spanned from the private sector to university administration. He worked as a project engineer and senior engineer at Structural Dynamics Research Corporation before joining The Ohio State University Center for Automotive Research as a research scientist. He taught at the University of Alabama beginning in 1998, as associate professor, before joining the University of Cincinnati in 2002, where he advanced from associate professor, professor and department head of mechanical engineering to associate dean for graduate studies and research and, ultimately, Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Dr. Lim earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Technological University (1985), his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla (1986), and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at The Ohio State University (1989).
