Dr. John G. Geske, department head and professor of Computer Science
Ph.D. in Computer Science from Iowa State University, with expertise in software engineering, computational complexity, theoretical foundations, discrete mathematics, logic and the philosophy of computing.
Geske, who has taught at Kettering since 1994, describes Kettering students as driven, self-assured and hard-working. In his eyes, they are also more career-oriented and inquisitive than students at other schools.
He says that one of his most enjoyable pleasures of teaching is bearing witness to the "aha!" moment when students first understand a new and difficult concept that they were convinced they would never understand. He came to Kettering for the opportunity to help build the Computer Science program.
Hidden talents and outside interests: He enjoys the "New York Times" Crossword Puzzle, playing golf and walking his dog in the woods around his home.
