About Me

John D. Carpinelli, PhD, is a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. His research interests include engineering education research, interconnection networks, and multiprocessor systems. He primarily teaches courses in computer architecture and freshman engineering.

He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and a member of the American Society for Engineering Education and the International Network for Engineering Education and Research.

In 2004, Carpinelli was named a Master Teacher, joining a select number of tenured faculty who have demonstrated the highest level of teaching excellence over a sustained period of time at NJIT.

He is the author of the textbook Computer Systems Organization and Architecture, which has been used at over 200 universities in the United States and over two dozen other countries.

My Research

 

Engineering Education Research

My work in engineering education research encompasses several facets. As a past member of the Governing Board of the Gateway Engineering Education Coalition, I supervised a wide variety of projects involving many faculty members at NJIT and served as project leader for several more. With my students, I have also created several Java applets for computer architecture education; all are available on my web page under the terms of the GNU GPL. Please see my curriculum vitae, also available on my web page, to see a list of my publications and grants in this area.

 

Interconnection Networks/Multiprocessor Systems

My work in this area focuses on multistage interconnection networks, such as Clos and Benes networks, and their role in multiprocessor systems and telecommunication systems. My research focuses on network design and performance, routing algorithms, and incorporation of fault tolerance in both switching hardware and software. Please see my curriculum vitae (click on the CV link above) to see a list of my publications and grants in this area.
