Kelvin Erickson, EE’78, MS EE’79, professor and former chair of electrical engineering at S&T, was named Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor during commencement ceremonies in December.

Erickson first joined Missouri S&T in 1978 as a graduate research assistant in the Cloud Physics Research Center while working toward his master’s degree. After earning his Ph.D. from Iowa State University, he later returned to the S&T faculty.

His research focuses on manufacturing automation, programmable logic controllers, plant-wide process control, model-based predictive control and system identification, and he is largely responsible for his department’s program in factory automation and control and programmable logic controllers.
