Faculty Perspective

  • Justin Jackson

    "One of the most exciting parts of the engineering curriculum at WSU is the hands-on aspect. Nothing is more fun or exciting than seeing students design and build a project. I enjoy seeing the students solve real-world problems by applying their math and physics courses to develop, characterize and verify solutions."
