Wayne Kirschling

I am a proud father to five, grandfather to six, great grandfather to one, and fortunate-to-be husband of Corinne (50 years).

Prior to my current faculty position, I was president of a series of startup and established high-tech companies serving the aviation, semiconductor equipment, and medical equipment industries both in the U.S. and internationally. During this same time period, I was Executive President of a private holding company headquartered in Indiana. I've served on the Board of Directors of both public and private companies and an industry association.

My public sector experiences include service as the Deputy Commissioner and Acting Commissioner of Higher Education for the State of Indiana and Director of Research for the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems.

I served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force for six years. My assignments included The Office of the Secretary of the Air Force and The Economics Department of the United States Air Force Academy.

For the last thirteen years, I have been a faculty member in the Graduate Engineering Management Program in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder. I am a Professor of Engineering Practice. My graduate classes are offered on-campus in a studio and available both synchronously and asynchonously to students worldwide. Previous teaching experience include: (1) serving as a full time faculty at the Air Force Academy, and (2) serving as adjunct or adjoint faculty at Butler University, University of Indianapolis, and the University of Colorado Boulder and Colorado Springs campuses. In addition, I have taught in the Executive MBA Program at the University of Colorado Denver.
