Before that, he was professor and chairman of mechanical engineering (1983-87) at the University of Alabama, Huntsville and a professor of energy engineering (1968-83) at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

At West Virginia, he successfully established the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources from the College of Engineering and the College of Mineral and Energy Resources by formulating and implementing new structures, policies and procedures. He also initiated a formal
co-op program in the college with initial placement of 17 co-op students in January 1997.

He has published widely in professional journals and has conducted extensive funded research, including the National Science Foundation-funded acquisition of a high-end visualization computing facility, a joint project with mathematics, physics and chemistry. Cogley earned his bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University in 1962, his master’s degree from the University of Virginia in 1964, and a doctorate from Stanford University in 1968.

John Lloyd joined the Michigan State University faculty in 1983 as professor and chairperson (1983-92) of the department of mechanical engineering. Before that, he was a professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering (1970-83) at the University of Notre Dame.
