Stephanie Bostwick has been teaching Engineering, Physics, and Math at community and technical colleges in Washington State for the past seven years. She launched the Engineering Transfer program at LWTech in 2016 and is currently teaching the part-time evening program, while also developing hybrid and Open Educational Resources (OER) for the department. Stephanie previously spent a decade working as an Aerospace Engineer in industry and was most recently a program manager for space-related programs. She holds a M.S. and B.S. in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from the University of Washington as well as a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering Technology from Thomas Edison State University.
Stephanie enjoys incorporating real-world, hands-on projects in her curriculum and clubs. She is currently working to incorporate a more interdisciplinary approach by collaborating with other departments within the college.
Cathy Zupke is a Chemical Engineer (B.S. Caltech, Ph.D. MIT) who worked in the biotech industry for 20 years. As part of her process development and optimization activities she wrote code on a variety of platforms for data acquisition, data management, data analysis, process modeling, and process control. When her company (Amgen) decided to leave Washington state, Zupke chose to accelerate her plan to retire and teach. Before coming to LWTech, she taught Computer Science and Engineering at Shoreline Community College.
Professor Zupke enjoys making things—she built her own 3D printer from scratch, as well as a self-balancing electric unicycle. She juggles regularly and is usually making slow progress on some sort of knitting project. While she enjoys teaching computer science, her primary role at LWTech is Chair of the Engineering department.
