Meet the Faculty: George Thomas, Ph.D.


– Hi, my name is George Thomas, I am a professor and department chair in computer science and engineering. Computer science and engineering is an absolutely exciting field to work in, especially at this time. I like to teach to students in a way that they understand the scientific principles behind it, because my philosophy is
that the technology changes so rapidly, but what stays is
the basic science and math, so if we emphasize on the
principles and fundamentals and then I encourage the
students to learn things as they go on, they’ll
have to relearn new things in their workplace, but the
basic principles we teach at school, I make sure that
it should be valuable to them. Truly gratifying for me to see students who have been in my class who graduate
and go on to good positions in the industry or they enter the academia and they make accomplishments
and achievements on their own and they
very frequently, you know, keep in touch with me
and it’s good to know that I have made a
difference in their life. That is the biggest reward.
