We are pleased to share the news that Chancellor Gallagher has promoted Telecommunications Program Chair and Associate Professor, David Tipper, to the rank of Full Professor, effective September 1, 2015.

The promotion recognizes his many accomplishments in research, teaching, and administration. He holds a PhD in electrical engineering and an MS in systems engineering from the University of Arizona, and a BS from Virginia Tech. Prior to joining the iSchool faculty, he was a member of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Clemson University.

Throughout his more than 20-year career at Pitt, he has distinguished himself as an insightful and analytical researcher, thoughtful academic, trustworthy colleague, and focused leader. He was one of the originators of the wireless track in the Telecommunications program and the Security Assured Information Systems track in the Information Science and Telecommunications degree programs.
