Jim BarksChairperson of Computer Engineering Technology

Jim Barks has been fascinated by electronics and science since he watched the Apollo moon missions as a child. He earned a Masters of Engineering in Electrical Engineering from the University of Louisville and worked for over 25 years as a civilian Electronics Engineer for the United States Navy. During that time, he worked with radars, electro-optics, and lasers and instructed sailors in the troubleshooting and repair of those systems.

His interest in teaching led to him joining the SCTD faculty as an adjunct in 1996. He has taught numerous courses in Electronics, Mathematics, and Physics during that time. Jim also holds CompTia A+, Net+, and Security+ certifications.

In 2015, Jim became chair of the Computer Engineering Technology Department and considers it an honor to prepare students to work in electronics-related fields.
