Bob Kinicki

Bob Kinicki has been a computer science faculty member since 1978. He enjoys the project-oriented nature that is at the heart of the WPI Plan. Serving as an advisor for MQPs, IQPs, and graduate research activity enables him to educate students via small-team interactions. His teaching is focused on computer networking, and he finds it rewarding to prepare students to handle the complexities of modern computer networking in their future careers.

While keeping up with the latest innovations in network communications such as wireless and sensor networks is challenging, Bob believes that studying and conducting research on the latest network innovations is both exciting and important for engineering and science students.
