Professor of the Practice of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Walter Collett, professor of the practice of electrical and computer engineering, was a member of the engineering faculty at Western Kentucky University for the past 18 years. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering and his Ph.D. in engineering from Tennessee Technological University where his doctoral research topic was investigating an electromagnetic wave technique to calculate radiation pressure forces on laser-driven micro-gears.
Four early-career academics have also joined the teaching faculty as assistant professors of the practice as well.
