George V. Krestas - Engineering

My Faculty Page

Welcome to my website.

As chair of the Engineering Department, my main responsibilities are teaching courses and advising students. My goal is to make the students' academic experiences as challenging and fun as my professional engineering experiences at GE, Lockheed, and IBM have been.

My work at GE, Lockheed, and IBM was both exciting and challenging. It combined intense analytical and computational work in a a variety of engineering disciplines ranging from simulation modeling of the flight of neutrons inside BW nuclear reactors to telemetry, studies of the thermal properties of the Shuttle tiles, and data acquisition systems in the Electromagnetic Threat Environment. I co-founded two Technical Writing agencies in the Silicon Valley and have done extensive consulting in the area of Data Base Administration and Design.
