Faculty: Lynn Klett
Lynn Klett graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University in 1990. She received a Master of Science Degree in Engineering Mechanics from Clemson University in 1994. Her thesis research involved evaluating the long term effects of physiologic saline on the mechanical properties of carbon fiber reinforced PEEK composite materials for use in joint replacements.
Mrs, Klett was an adjunct faculty member at Pellissippi State from Fall 2009 through Spring 2012 teaching both ENS and MET classes. She became a full time instructor in Fall 2012 and is involved in the Mechanical Engineering concentration.
Her prior work experience includes 11 years as a R & D Staff Member of the Polymer Matrix Composites Group in the Metals and Ceramic Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In that capacity, she was involved with a wide variety of projects involving design, stress analysis, processing, test development and data analysis of polymer matrix composites and other advanced materials.
Additionally, she spent 2 years as a Design Engineer at Pratt & Whitney GESP where the projects focused on conceiving, designing, and analyzing advanced propulsion technologies for incorporation into existing and next generation fighter aircraft.
