Bruce McLean grew up on the Eastside of Lake Washington, has a B.S. degree in Computer Science from Washington State University and a M.S. degree in Computer Information and Control Engineering from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Bruce started his professional career in Computer Science at Bell Labs in New Jersey, programming in C and Unix. At Bell Labs, he worked on an early “Home Information System” that was a joint project with CBS.
Bruce eventually moved back to the Eastside and joined a small company in Bellevue working on real-time control systems for electric transmission and distribution companies plus other similar systems for nuclear power plants, water and irrigation systems, and pipeline companies. His early specialty was in system performance, which led to travel around the world to locations in Europe, the Middle East, and Australia. After co-founding a company, growing it, and selling to the French Technology company Alstom, Bruce retired from the business world and turned teaching at LWTech. In his spare time, he stays fit by playing soccer.
