Meet our Faculty

Don't take our word for it

"I never expected to have the opportunity to do this kind of research as an undergraduate student. Professors are very willing to work with us and I even get to work with brand new equipment. My hope is that this type of technology will continue to be developed through China’s sustainability policy. With so much smoke and pollution, more innovative techniques are necessary."

Wei Wang (2012)

"“The most favorable aspect of the Technology program is that if you decide to be responsible for what you want to learn and work with the faculty, they will work with you to facilitate your approach and support your goals. The program allows the student to be decisive and responsible for learning rather than receiving information and applying it to established criteria. I have found that the program is flexible enough to help graduate students reach their goals, even for someone like me, who wants to make films.”

Matt Devall (2014)

"As a construction major I found that learning things in the classroom and being able to apply them to real world applications has made a strong foundation for the tasks that will be ahead of me in the future. The courses that I have taken in Klehm Hall have enabled me to be a problem solver, have integrative learning skills that include hands-on-work, and know that what I have learned will be applied in the job that I hope to have in the future.”

Patrick Lyons (2014)

"EIU has had a great impact on other countries because of students studying outside their country who intend to return home and bring a more qualified workforce into bettering their economies. From an international admissions standpoint, our students do an amazing job of recommending EIU to their friends and siblings.”

Aimee Romack (2013)

"It is well known that the United States is the land of opportunity. It was a very easy decision for me. I was looking for a course structure that would be a blend of technology and management, and EIU’s School of Technology offers the best master’s program to reach that goal. Charleston is a good place for students. It’s an affordable place to live, and people are friendly here. Also, EIU does a lot to help students, such as providing a shuttle to shopping areas. This helps students who don’t have a car."
