Category: Alumni Service | Awards

Throughout his career at Boeing, Scott County native Howard Chambers always made an effort to keep in touch with his roots.

A 1964 graduate of the College of Engineering with a BS in mechanical engineering, Chambers kept in touch, even as he held positions as demanding as vice president and general manager of space and intelligence systems for Boeing’s Integrated Defense Systems. He also was board chair of entities like Boeing Satellite Systems International Inc., Spectrolab Inc., and Boeing Satellite Systems, of which he was also CEO. Though Chambers retired from Boeing in 2011, he continues to serve as an advisor to the chief technology officer.

A former member of the UT Alumni Association Board of Governors, Chambers is an active participant in the UTAA Southern California Chapter. He has served on the College of Engineering Dean’s Board of Advisors and in 2009 won the Nathan W. Dougherty Award. Chambers is an inaugural member of the External Advisory Council for the Office of Research and Engagement and is a key adviser to the Haslam College of Business through the Business Aerospace MBA Board and the National Defense Business Institute.

A financial supporter of UT for more than 50 years, Chambers has always been willing to do whatever it takes to support students, faculty, and administration, propelling UT to even greater heights.
