I am applying for a degree in a university.

they ask me to send them a recommendation letter from one of my professor.

I want to write the position of this professor.

I write this:

Doctor of Software Engineering. Also, He was the dean of faculty of Information Technology Engineering

Is it correct to use "of" or it would be better to use "in" or what please?

  • Your use of of is precisely correct. However, if he is still Dean of Faculty (use caps), use the present tense; if not, refer to him as former D of F. Finally, if Information Technology is a school, you can say at (or just a comma) *D of F, ITE; if it's a department, it should be *D of F, Dept. of ITE, (university/other) – anongoodnurse Dec 30 '13 at 10:30
  • @Susan what do mean by "use caps" ?. what do you mean by D or F? – user3110137 Dec 30 '13 at 10:54
  • Oh, I'm sorry! Use capital letters for titles, and D of F is an abbreviation for Dean of Faculty. – anongoodnurse Dec 30 '13 at 11:12
  • @Susan do you mean that I have to write DEAN OF FACULTY ? please – user3110137 Dec 30 '13 at 13:48
  • I must apologize again. No, not all capitals (caps). Just the first letters of the title (excluding the preposition). Dean of Faculty. Dean of Georgetown College. Assistant Dean and Director of Pre-Health Programs. – anongoodnurse Dec 30 '13 at 14:03

Your use of of is precisely correct. However, if he is still Dean of Faculty (D o F), use the present tense; if not, refer to him as former D of F. Finally, if Information Technology Engineering (ITE) is a school, you can say "at" (or just a comma) D of F, ITE; if it's a department, it should be D of F, Dept. of ITE, (university/other)

Capitalize the first letters of a title (excluding the preposition), e.g. Dean of Faculty, Dean of Georgetown College, Assistant Dean and Director of Pre-Health Programs.

  • because he is not the dean now, if i understand you answer correctly, i will write this Doctor of Software Engineering. Also, He is former Dean of Faculty of Information Technology Engineering , is that correct ? – user3110137 Dec 30 '13 at 14:14
  • @user3110137 - yes, that is correct. :-) – anongoodnurse Dec 30 '13 at 14:25
  • sorry, just one last question, would it be better if i used a before former. like this he is a former... ? – user3110137 Dec 30 '13 at 14:28
  • No. If you are using a descriptive, use the former. – anongoodnurse Dec 30 '13 at 15:06
