Tim Dallas, PhD is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas Tech University. Dr. Dallas’ research includes developing MEMS-based education and research tools. Currently, he is working with colleagues in the College of Education on the development of an education portal, Classroom on a Chip, and the Solar Powered Digital Classroom in a Box (SPDCB). The SPDCB technology has been deployed to off-the-grid locations in Africa, Asia, and Central America to provide much needed educational content to entire classrooms using picoprojectors. In 2008, he established Class on a Chip, Inc. to commercialize an array of micro-experimental devices for use in engineering, physics, and MEMS classes. In 2014, he established a new class in the Whitacre College of Engineering, Technology Start-up Lab, which takes students through a process to develop their own technology projects for commercialization. Each summer, he teaches a class entitled Solar Energy, which includes a hands-on solar energy design project. Dr. Dallas has served as the principal investigator for two National Science Foundation sponsored Scholarships in STEM (S-STEM) projects, a Research Experience for Undergraduates Site, a Course Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) project, and a number of other research and equipment grants from NSF. He has also been funded by the Keck and Welch Foundations for MEMS-based education technologies. He served for three years as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Education. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Fellow of TTU’s STEM-CORE.
