Hutchins gifts first professorship of practice

This gift documents the College of Engineering’s first endowed professorship of practice| Short Read

Charles S. “Chuck” Hutchins (BSE ME ’57) has made provisions via his estate plan with the intention of establishing the Charles S. Hutchins Professorship of Practice in Manufacturing Engineering. This gift documents the College of Engineering’s first endowed professorship of practice. Chuck has specified that future incumbents need not have earned a PhD, but must have broad experience in manufacturing and bring many years of industry experience to the position.

Chuck is a co-founder of Manufacturing Data Systems, Inc. (MDSI) whose former corporate headquarters is now the Arbor Lakes Facility of the University of Michigan. He and his wife Ann (BS Des ’57) are longtime supporters of both Michigan Engineering and the broader University. Chuck is especially passionate about the University of Michigan Solar Car Team, having advised the team and accompanied them on every race since the running of Maize and Blue in 1993.
