Jaerock Kwon


My name is Jaerock Kwon. I am originally from Korea. After extensive industrial experiences as a software engineer in a consumer electronics company, a mobile phone manufacturer, and a wireless internet service technology company, I started my academic career at Kettering University where I am working as an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. You may follow me on @jaerock_ece or find me at facebook/jaerock.ece.

Kettering University (formerly General Motors Institute of Technology and GMI Engineering and Management Institute) is a nationally-ranked STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and Business university in Flint, Michigan and a national leader in combining a rigorous academic environment with rich opportunities for experiential learning and cooperative education.
