The dean of Brigham Young University's College of Engineering and Technology will meet for the first time as a newly appointed member of the U.S. Congressional Office of Technology Assessment Advisory Council on Oct. 4-5 in Washington, D.C.

L. Douglas Smoot will meet biannually with the council during his two-year appointment. The council serves as an analytical support agency of the U.S. Congress on technological issues."I'm looking forward to this first experience with the Office of Technology Assessment to examine technology that may be of importance to the United States," said Smoot, who has consulted with more than 40 companies and agencies in energy, combustion and propulsion in the United States, Europe and the Orient.
