J. Edward Swan II

Since arriving at MSU, I have taught courses in Visualization, Game Design, Computer Graphics, Human-Computer Interaction, and theoretical core courses such as Programming Languages, Analysis of Algorithms, Discrete Structures, Formal Languages, and Computation Fundamentals.  I have recently developed a Data Science course (Spring 2017 and Spring 2019). In Spring 2008 I pioneered (in collaboration with my colleague TJ Jankun-Kelly) a Game Design course.  In Spring 2010, this class involved programming games on first-generation smartphones, provided by C Spire.

In March 2009 I was extremely gratified to be inducted into the Bagley College of Engineering Academy of Distinguished Teachers.
