Dr. Lucietto is an experienced engineer with years of experience in a variety of positions in different industries. She began as a mechanical engineer, working in progressively responsible positions requiring in-depth knowledge in mechanical, electrical, civil/construction, chemical and environmental engineering. She has spent significant time in the energy generation, chemical process, nuclear plant construction, operation, and material fabrication roles. Much of her career focused on facilities, maintenance, reliability, and various aspects of manufacturing management.
She moved into teaching full time to help students successfully transition into careers in a variety of industries and to aide in their development into and through graduate school. Her research is focused on sustainable energy, and engineering education, with the intention of fully understanding engineering technology students.
