Open SUNY Online Teaching Ambassador 2016 – Maritime: Paul M. Kump

Paul Kump

Paul Kump

Paul M. Kump, Ph.D., is Assistant Professor of Engineering at SUNY Maritime College.

I am Professor Kump, originally from Chicago, and I teach electrical and computer engineering for SUNY Maritime.  In the beginning of the Spring 2016 semester, I had been given the opportunity to teach our engineering department’s inaugural online course, an introduction to computer programming for engineering students of all disciplines.  If there was ever a course that should be online, it is this one.  The course, which had over 120 students enrolled, was a success, with several students expressing their surprise to me that they could learn so much from an online course.

Computing is a hobby of mine.  I have written nuclear material detection algorithms for the U.S. government, crime prediction software for the Chicago Police Department,  and my own personal stock market prediction software.  The latter is a work in progress, and I hope to someday have the software automatically trading for me and emailing me diagnostics.  I enjoy typing in LaTex and building websites.
