3. Off-Campus Ph.D. Programs
CAMP Professors Richard Partch, Roshan Jachuck, and S.V. Babu participate in off-campus Ph.D. programs. Professor Partch is mentoring a mid-stream professional in his Ph.D. course and thesis requirements. The student is David Gervasi sponsored by Xerox Corporation. Two graduate students, Dinesh Selveraj sponsored by NXP (mentor Professor Jachuck), and Veera Dandu sponsored by Ferro Corporation (mentor Professor Babu), have been working on their degree programs as interns. In each case the thesis research pertains to the sponsor company’s technical goals, and at the same time reveals new fundamental information about the topic. Dinesh recently completed his Ph.D. and is now employed by NXP at East Fishkill, New York.
