Dr. Rob Norwood
Dean of Undergraduate Studies
Dr. Robert Norwood spent almost eleven years at Stanford University. He started with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, got a Master of Science along the way, and finished up with a Doctorate of Philosophy, also in Electrical Engineering, with a Ph.D. minor in Computer Science. The birth of Dr. Norwood's first child was the impetus for finally getting out of graduate school, and he now has seven children, four sons and three daughters. After leaving graduate school, Dr. Norwood worked at Silicon Graphics before moving to Arkansas to teach at JBU. He has also worked at Intel and Sun Microsystems. He has been teaching at JBU since 1998 and loves it. Dr. Norwood teaches in the Engineering and Computer Science Departments. His professional interests include digital logic design, learning new programming languages, and playing around with Lego Mindstorms Robotics. His great desire is to see students get excited about figuring out why things work the way they do and realizing that they can begin to understand God's creation.
