Dr. Harold Schock received his BS in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Technological University in 1974 and his MS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor in 1975. He then returned to Michigan Tech and earned his PhD in Engineering Mechanics in 1979. While earning his PhD at Tech, Dr. Schock worked as a research assistant and a teaching assistant.

Dr. Schock is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Automotive Research Experiment Station at Michigan State University. In 2002, Dr. Schock was selected as an International Fellow by the Society of Automotive Engineers in recognition of his 20 years of work in quantifying flows in piston and rotary engines. His work is documented in more than 70 publications. Dr. Schock is known as an authority on in-cylinder flow control and has invented, developed, and improved diagnostics that quantify details of critical engine processes. He was responsible for establishing the Automotive Research Experiment Station at MSU.

From 2002 Induction to the Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics Academy
