H. Paul Haiduk

Instructor of Computer Sciences

"Computer science trains students to really understand the inner workings of computing devices and software. Thus, our job in the computer science program is to train students to be Jedi warriors in the world of hacking and to always be vigilant against the Sith (the dark side hackers bent upon destruction, power, etc.). Students studying Computer Science can expect to work incredibly hard. Those who are successful can expect significant rewards, not the least of which are $$$$. May the Force be with you."

Dr. Nathan Howell

Associate Professor of Environmental Engineering

"Engineering is, in many ways, an approach to solving problems more than a discipline of study. I encourage students to T-H-I-N-K more than anything else. Your value as an engineer rests in your ability to think well for the benefit of others. I value all my students too much to get them through a class of mine without honing their critical thinking abilities."
