Bio

George Slack received his B.S. Electrical Engineering in from RIT and his M.S. Electrical Engineering in from the University of Rochester.

Professor George Slack teaches courses in electrical engineering. He joined the Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering Department in 2003. Prior to pursuing a career in academia, he worked at Xerox Corporation and Bosch Security Systems. At Xerox Corporation, his primary focus was on digital processing of monochrome and color high speed printing via ESS (Electronic Sub-System). Primary focus was on real time and off-line diagnostic data processing for the purpose of early failure prediction, detecting process errors and hardware failures.

His primary responsibility is to teach Senior Design I and Senior Design II. This is comprised of two-semester design course oriented to the solution of engineering problems. The mission is to enhance engineering education through a capstone design experience that integrates engineering theory, principles and processes within a collaborative environment. Working in multidisciplinary teams and following an engineering design process, students assess customer needs and engineering specifications, evaluate concepts, resolve major technical hurdles, and employ rigorous engineering principles to design a prototype which is fully tested and documented.

He has also taught Introduction to Digital Systems and Freshman Practicum.
