“It has been exciting to be a part of the development of Cedarville's engineering and computer science programs for more than 30 years. I participated in the planning for and construction of our three classroom, laboratory, and office buildings. I was one of three engineering faculty during my first year at Cedarville and now have the privilege of leading more than 30 engineering and computer science faculty and staff. My greatest joy has come with the growth of our student numbers…from the inaugural class of 40 students in two majors to the nearly 700 students in six majors. I encourage you to come to Ohio and see what our faculty and students are accomplishing. We pray that you will be inspired to join us!”
