Nancy Kelly, PhD
Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering
My responsibilities include teaching electrical and general engineering courses, almost exclusively to students majoring in one of the Hamm School of Engineering programs. I work with colleagues in all aspects of program development, especially curriculum and policy development.
Fr. Athanasius Oweis, PhD
Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, Fellow in Catholic Studies
I am a person who sees the beauty of God's creation and magnificent order in all places, especially in engineering, where order is key. All the formulas that we use in our field are set by our loving Creator and being on a journey where you learn and teach these orderly formulas and equations gives immense joy. I love my students and I try my best to let them see the beauty in what they learn so they get excited and energized, and see that engineering can become a vocation, not just a career.
