Dr. Wayne Walter is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). He received his BS in Marine Engineering from SUNY Maritime College, his MS in Mechanical Engineering from Clarkson University, and his Ph.D. in Mechanics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Dr. Walter has worked for the U.S. Army, Rochester Products and Delco Products Divisions of General Motors, and Xerox, and is a registered professional engineer (P.E.) in New York State. He has forty years experience teaching design related and solid mechanics courses, and has developed expertise in the areas of robotics systems, and micro-robotics. He is an ASEE and ASME member.
Tim Southerton is currently a fifth year mechanical engineering student at RIT in the BS/MEng Dual Degree program. As a student who enjoyed the Stamp-based Robotics class as an undergraduate, he was very interested in an opportunity to restructure the curriculum for Arduino compatibility. Once involved in the project, he decided to see it through as the teaching assistant for the lab portion of the revamped course, which proved to be an enriching experience. After graduating in the spring of 2014 he plans on pursuing a career in mechanical engineering with a strong focus on consumer electronics and new product design to help make the world that much more entertaining.
