Regarded by industry peers for his work ethic and professionalism, he then served as a visiting associate professor at Indiana University for two years, followed by 10 years as a professor of computer science at the University of Nebraska. Dr. Chang concluded his career in 1987 as a W.M. Keck Professor of applied mathematics and computer science at Claremont McKenna College. Along the way, he impacted his industry through career-related projects, including stints as a visiting professor for San Diego University, the University of California, Los Angeles, and the La Jolla Institute. Notably, Dr. Chang spent 24 years performing research in numerical analysis and application of Taylor series to solve science problems, a feat that he notes to be the highlight of his career. Also, he has performed extensive industrial research regarding solid state physics.
Dr. Chang holds a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering and a Master of Science in electrical engineering from Purdue University, which he earned in 1950 and 1952, respectively. Thereafter, he achieved a PhD in applied physics from Harvard University in 1959. To share his expertise with his industry, he has contributed articles to professional journals and publications on mathematical chaos, Taylor series, and semiconductor physics. A member of the Association of Computer Machinery, he has received a number of research grants from the National Science Foundation to further his research and he was honored with a Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award. As he looks to the future, Dr. Chang intends to continue in his tremendous work at the collegiate level while looking for new opportunities to share his expertise.
