Jim Tappel - Asst. Professor (Professional Practice)




As an engineering undergraduate, I was encouraged by both my engineering professors as well as my co-op advisers that the training and experience available at UC competed at a world class level. Left UC to pursue a graduate degree at Stanford (which confirmed the great foundational training at UC), worked internationally for two years (where technical, cultural and societal issues collide) and returned to Cincinnati after 25 years professional experience to help launch the next wave of collaborative innovators.
