Joe Gryniuk has been teaching at Lake Washington Institute of Technology since 1991. Originally hired when the college was a VoTech, some see Joe as the last employee hired by VoTech or the first faculty member hired by the Technical College. The bottom line is that Joe played an integral part in the development of the current AAS degree and certificate curriculum.
Prior to coming to LWTech, Joe taught advanced electronics systems for the U.S. Navy at the Submarine School in Groton, Connecticut. What qualified Joe for that position was his extensive electronics background, teaching expertise and the fact that he served as a submariner on active duty in the Atlantic Fleet.
Joe's passion for Electronics started in junior high school, working on kits and other assorted home projects. Outside of his teaching and military experience, Joe also has experience in commercial broadcasting, Technical Writing, Bio-medical, Aerospace as well as Industrial Electronics industries.
Joe holds a commercial FCC license, a Senior CET designation as well as IPC certifications. He is a Certified Administrator for the FCC, CET and IPC industry certifications as well.
Most recently Joe had the distinction as serving as a Faculty Associate for Maricopa Advanced Technology and Education Center (MATEC) in Tempe, Arizona. This position provided Joe with incredible professional development opportunities, working at Penn State University and the University of New Mexico's semiconductor fabrication labs.
Joe has also been instrumental in developing and presenting Intel's summer faculty institute. He has been a guest speaker around the nation, helping to develop programs and faculty members associated with technology programs.
Joe is a regular technical reviewer for several publishing companies, with numerous professional writing assignments to his credit.
In his free time Joe enjoys his family, more electronics as well as travel. Joe is a licensed pilot and a self-proclaimed aviation evangelist.
