September 28, 2012 — All faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend Drexel University’s tree dedication and planting in memory of Dr. Werner Krandick Tuesday, Oct. 2 from 1:30-3 p.m. The ceremony will be held at Drexel Park, located between 31st and 32nd Streets near Powelton Avenue and Baring Street, just off of the University City campus.

Dr. Krandick passed away March 26, 2012. His passing was unexpected and he is sorely missed by the Drexel community. He joined Drexel University as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science in 2001 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2006. He regularly taught both undergraduate and graduate courses in algorithms, data structures, cryptography, symbolic computation, software engineering, and theoretical computer science. Dr. Krandick’s research interests were in symbolic computation, high-performance computing, and mobile collaboration.
