Waynesburg U. hires new faculty member

Tim Durkin Nov 2, 2023

Waynesburg University’s Department of Mathematics, Computer Science & Physics recently hired new faculty member, Charles Chen, to teach computer science.

Chen has a master’s degree in computer science, and he is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in the same field. Before he joined the Waynesburg community, he worked in the computer science industry for several years.

“Before I joined Waynesburg University, I worked at the IT department of a financial bank, then the software engineering department of a logistics and supply chain company,” Chen said. “I also worked as a computer science educator before.”

He also works as a journal reviewer for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He says it is the world’s largest technical professional organization that advances technology to benefit humanity.

Chen is currently teaching Programming in C and C++ (CSC 226) and Operating Systems and Computer Architect (CSC 309) with Dr. Richard Leipold.

Next semester, he will be teaching Introduction to Computers (CSC 105), Selected Topics in Computer Science: Human-Computer Interaction (CSC 395) and Computer Security (CSC 409).

Chen is excited to help students grow more in their faith through his work on campus.

“I am blessed to work at Waynesburg University, helping students to make connections between faith, learning and serving, helping them faithfully transform their communities and the world,” he said.
