Curriculum Development:

  1. Developed a new course in Hardware for Cryptography.
  2. Developed a Computer Engineering Curriculum for the new Bachelors degree in Computer Engineering. I now lead the effort in improving all aspects of the computer engineering program at NDSU.
  3. I have incorporated real life examples from my experience at Intel into my courses. The students have consistently remarked that this has fiven them a new perspective on the course material.
  4. I have developed five new courses in the ECE department. These are "ECE 494 Cryptography Protocols", "ECE 470 Digital Systems Testing", "Information Theory", "Cryptography Protocol Theory," and "ECE 775 Hardware for Cryptography". In these courses I give examples of my work at Intel.
