The Department of Physics and Engineering is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Stephen Parke to the faculty as of fall 2010.  Dr. Parke is completing his responsibilities as professor and chair of Tennessee Tech University’s Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Cookeville, Tenn.
According to Dr. Parke, the goal of the new NNU engineering program that begins in Fall 2010 is to provide a rigorous, Christ-centered learning experience that thoroughly equips graduates for a productive, professional career.  He understands the integration of faith and learning, and states, “Engineering is especially attractive to mission-minded and service-minded Christian youth today who aspire to combine a highly technical career with eternally significant compassionate and humanitarian actions, products and services.”
Developments such as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, robotics, supercomputers, nanomaterials, the Smart Grid, and renewable energy generation define engineering as one of the most influential and valuable careers to society, and a very attractive choice for the best and brightest students in the world.
Prior to Parke’s leadership responsibilities at Tennessee Tech, he was a professor of electrical engineering at Boise State University for 10 years, and a research engineer at IBM for 12 years. He earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley and serves on the Board of Directors of American Semiconductor, Inc., in Boise.
