Academic Service 

 

One of the more rewarding aspects of being a college professor is the chance to participate with students in their

extracurricular activities.

 

Recently, I served as the Faculty adviser to the winning team for the Penn State Altoona, Engineering and Business Case Competition,

which was generously hosted by the Norfolk Southern Foundation. 

 

The students took home a check for US $10K, valuable experience, and solid resume material. I came away with a wonderful sense of satisfaction, and  some superb corporate contacts to assist in my own research.
