Clay Gloster, Jr. is currently serving as Associate Dean in the College of Science and Technology and the Interim chair in the Department of Computer Systems Technology at North Carolina A&T State University. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from
North Carolina A&T State University (Greensboro, NC) and the Ph.D. degree
in Computer Engineering from North Carolina State University (Raleigh NC).
He also has been employed with IBM, the Department of Defense,
the Microelectronics Center of North Carolina, North Carolina State University, and Howard University.
research interests are in the general area of reconfigurable computing. Current research focuses
on the development of a suite of software tools that allow scientists to benefit from the potential order of magnitude
speedup in execution time offered by reconfigurable computers over typical desktop computers. Dr. Gloster has also conducted research in the area of
technology-based curriculum development, distance education, and VLSI design for testability.
Dr. Gloster has taught courses on digital system design, ASIC design, microprocessor system applications, FPGA-based
system design, and VLSI design for testability (using VHDL/Verilog). He has served on the program committee and as session
chair for several international conferences. He received best paper and presentation awards for a paper presented at the
International Conference on Computer Design and has received numerous fellowships and distinguished awards. Dr. Gloster holds two US patents and led the effort to establish a new BS degree program in Computer Engineering at Howard University.
