Dale Masel has been a member of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering since 1998 and was named chair in 2018. Before becoming chair, he served the department in a variety of roles, including as undergraduate chair (2002-2018), accreditation coordinator (2000-2005), and adviser for the student chapter of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (1999-2002). He has also served the Russ College as adviser of the Engineering Ambassadors (2004-present) and an instructor for the engineering Learning Communities (2005-2017).

Since 2000, Masel has been co-PI for a research project sponsored by General Electric to develop improved methods for estimating manufacturing costs. Areas of application for the methods include jet engines, gas turbines, and wind turbines. He has also been involved in a research collaboration with Geisinger Health since 2013 to develop improved supply chain management methods for hospitals.

Masel is a member of the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE), serving from 2013 to 2018 as co-chair of the Facilities Design and Planning Track at the IISE Annual Conference. He is also a member of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), the International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association (ICEAA), and APICS. From 2004 to 2013, he was also a member of the College-Industrial Council on Material Handling Education.
