As the associate professor and program coordinator of Computer Engineering Technology and Engineering Science, Dr. Lin Lin has been a faculty member at Middlesex Community College since 2010. Since Fall 2015, Lin has been serving as the interim division director of the School of Allied Health, Business and STEM. She created and developed the Computer Engineering Technology program. She was the chair of the Programs and Services Evaluation Committee from 2012 to 2015. She also is co-adviser of the Beta Gamma Xi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and founder/adviser of the MxCC Robotics Club.

Since 2015, Lin has served as a faculty representative on the MxCC Foundation board. She has been a site coordinator of the Connecticut College of Technology Consortium and the Regional Center for Next Generation Manufacturing, a member of American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and an executive board member and membership co-chair of the ASEE Northeast Section. She also represents all Connecticut chapters on the Phi Theta Kappa New England Regional Board. She briefly served as campus director for NASA Connecticut Space Grant Consortium.

Lin has contributed greatly to bringing in external funding to support programs for the College and collaborated with university and industry partners on research grants. She helped MxCC receive a National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research Grant and oversaw its implementation. In her role as interim academic division director, she oversees the Connecticut Advanced Manufacturing Initiative (CAMI) Grant.

Lin received the 2015 Board of Regents System-wide Teaching Award as a distinguished teacher with a track record of promoting instructional improvements for her programs and is the recipient of the 2015 Board of Regents Teaching Award for Middlesex Community College.

Prior to her teaching career, Lin was a senior engineer at the United Technologies Research Center in East Hartford, Conn., where she coauthored six U.S. and international patents and received an Outstanding Achievement Award, the center’s highest award for recognizing exceptional performance. Her research work focused on the algorithms development for automatic intrusion detection and tracking for digital video surveillance systems. Lin has published numerous peer-reviewed technical journal and conference papers in the area of multi-target tracking. She earned a PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Connecticut, MS in electrical engineering/Communication, Telemetry and Telecontrol Research Institute, and a BS in electrical engineering from Hebei University in China.
