TITLE: My PhD Advisor Takes on a New Challenge AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: September 03, 2014 4:13 PM DESC: ----- BODY: Just this week I learned that Jon Sticklen, my PhD advisor, has moved to Michigan Tech to chair its Department of Engineering Fundamentals. As I recall, Michigan Tech focuses much of its effort on undergraduate engineering education. This makes it a good fit for Jon, who has been working on projects in engineering education at Michigan State for a number of years now, with some success. I wish him and them well. By the way, if you can handle a strong winter, then Tech can be a great place to live. The upper peninsula of Michigan is stunning! -----
