Montgomery College's Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) area consists of departments offering courses and associate degrees in physics, engineering, geosciences, computer science, cybersecurity, and network and wireless technologies disciplines.

As part of the Montgomery College mission of empowering students to change their lives, we are committed to providing quality instruction that leads to understanding and competence suitable for the emerging global economy. Most of the undergraduate courses are transferable to top tier four-year institutions. Students in these courses have numerous academic enhancement opportunities through student clubs, internships, and undergraduate research.

I am currently the Collegewide Dean of Science, Engineering & Technology at Montgomery College, a position I have assumed since August 14th, 2014. Previously, I was chair of the Physics, Engineering and Geosciences department at Montgomery College.

Our division provides the first two years of the engineering curriculum for over 1,500 full-time and part-time engineering students, about 150 of whom transfer each year to such schools as University of Maryland, GWU, Georgia Tech, and MIT.

Throughout my 35 year tenure as a professor, department chair, and collegewide dean at Montgomery College, I have been a strong advocate for engineering education at both the college and K-12 levels. I am an active member of ASEE and I have been actively involved in several educational initiatives both at higher education and K-12 level.
