Mequanint Moges earned his Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia and M.Sc. degree in Communication Systems from the University of New South Wales in Australia. His research interests are in the areas of wireless sensor networking, load scheduling in parallel and distributed systems and grid computing. Currently, he is working as an instructional associate professor at the Department of Engineering Technology. He has been teaching courses including Electrical Circuits, Telecommunications, Data Communications, Computer Networks and Advanced Wireless Networks. He is actively involved in curriculum development and revision. He has worked on a successful project funded by FDIP to enhance instructional excellence of part time faculty and teaching assistants using hybrid orientation programs. He has also been involved in two recently funded instructional research grants from NSF-CCLI (Co-PI) and NSF-REU (senior personnel). Prior to his current position, he was involved in the design of electrical systems of different nature viz. industrial, public as well as low voltage communication systems.
In 2008 and 2013 he received the College of Technology’s Fluor Daniel Award for teaching excellence. In 2014 he received the UH teaching excellence award. He is also a recipient of Stony Brook Presidential Fellowship for the academic year 2001-02 and an AUSAID scholarship from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia for the academic year 1996-1997.
