BUFFALO--Dariush H. Zadeh, Ph. D., PE, professor of Mechanical
Engineering Technology at SUNY Erie's North Campus, has recently received
international recognition and has published an article, 'Electronic Structures
of Elements according to Ionization Energies' by Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany
publisher in the 2017 'Journal of Molecular Modeling,' Volume 23, Article 357,
page 1-12, Nov. 2017 by: Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany under P. Politzer 80th
Birthday Festschrift, ISSN: 1610-2940 (print) 0948-5023 (online).
The article is written on the topic of quantum chemistry and
provides a new look at the atomic structures of elements using the ionization
energies. The piece suggests a different rule for filling atomic orbitals and
hence a different organization of periodic table of elements. This information
may benefit Chemistry faculty and students at SUNY Erie, or anyone interested
in research works in theoretical (physical, ab initio, quantum) chemistry.

Dr. Zadeh's graduate educational and research background is
not only in engineering but also in physical chemistry and math, so it is
natural for his published articles to be from a variety of these topic areas.
Dr. Zadeh has been employed at SUNY for 20 years and has published
approximately 20 papers during his doctorate at the University of New Orleans
and his postdoctoral fellowship at the University at Buffalo and SUNY Erie.
His presence at SUNY Erie will continue to enrich the College's Mechanical Engineering Technology Program, which offers an in-depth study of mechanical engineering technology courses intermixed with liberal arts and social science courses. Analytical mechanics, strength of materials, fluid mechanics, applied thermodynamics and electricity for mechanical equipment are among the subjects covered in the curriculum. Graduates of the program either assume positions as a mechanical technician; continue their educations toward a bachelor or advanced degree in engineering or technology; or take the National Institute for Engineering Technicians exam and exams offered by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.
