Wiencek is a University of Cincinnati graduate who got his master’s and doctoral degrees in chemical engineering from Case Western Reserve University. He joined Rutgers University as assistant professor in 1989, earned tenure and moved to the University of Iowa in 1995. He was appointed chair in 2003.
