Noah Salzman is an Assistant Professor at Boise State University, where he is a member of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and IDoTeach, a pre-service STEM teacher preparation program. His work focuses on the transition from pre-college to university engineering programs, how exposure to engineering prior to matriculation affects the experiences of engineering students, and engineering in the K-12 classroom. He has worked as a high school science, mathematics, and engineering and technology teacher, as well as several years of electrical and mechanical engineering design experience as a practicing engineer. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from Swarthmore College, his Master's of Education degree from the University of Massachusetts, and a Master's of Science in Mechanical Engineering and Doctorate in Engineering Education from Purdue University.
Janet Callahan is the Founding Associate Dean for the College of Engineering at Boise State University and a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering. Dr. Callahan received her Ph.D. in Materials Science, her M.S. in Metallurgy, and her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Connecticut. Her educational research interests include freshman engineering programs, math success, K-12 STEM curriculum and accreditation, and retention and recruitment of STEM majors.
Carol Sevier is the Freshman Engineering Coordinator at Boise State University. She received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from South Dakota State University (Brookings, S.D.). She was employed at Hewlett Packard for 16 years where she held a variety of positions in Quality Assurance, Manufacturing, and Marketing. She also served as the Development Director at the Discovery Center of Idaho, a hands-on science center. She has overseen the project-based Introduction to Engineering course since fall 2009. Sevier introduced a service learning design project, FUSE, into a portion of the Introduction to Engineering labs in spring 2009. This program received recognition by the National Academy of Engineering for infusing real-world experiences into engineering education. She continues to expand and refine the course content.
Amy J. Moll is a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and Dean of the College of Engineering at Boise State University. Moll received her B.S. degree in Ceramic Engineering from University of Illinois, Urbana in 1987. Her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees are in Materials Science and Engineering from University of California at Berkeley in 1992 and 1994. Following graduate school, Moll worked for Hewlett Packard (San Jose, Calif. and Colorado Springs, Colo.). She joined the faculty at Boise State as an Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering in August of 2000. Along with Dr. Bill Knowlton, Moll founded the Materials Science and Engineering Program at BSU and served as the first chair. In February 2011, she became Dean of the College of Engineering. Her research interests include microelectronic packaging, particularly 3-D integration and ceramic MEMS devices.
