Directory Profile

Bio:

I graduated from DeVry Institute of Technology, Phoenix, as it was called back then, in 1981 with an A.S. in Electronics Engineering Technology.  I spent the next nine years growing my own business repairing televisions.

After growing tired of working on old worn out televisions, I went back to school in 1990 and earned a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado Denver.  During that time I mostly worked for Automatic Data Processing in Wheatridge and Seakr Engineering in Centennial.

During my graduate schooling, I began teaching evening classes and labs for UCD and have been doing it part-time for the last 16 years.  I find teaching to be the most rewarding kind of work I've ever done.

B.S.E.E., Georgia Tech; M.S.Ae.E., USAF Institute of Technology; Affiliate Professor of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Ralph N. Jones received a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech in 1962 and a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering degree from the U. S. Air Force Institute of Technology at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in 1964. He served four years as an Air Force officer at what is now called the National Aerospace Intelligence Center (NAIC), analyzing foreign weapon systems and estimating their capabilities.

His expertise as a civilian includes time in Huntington Beach, California where he worked on projects such as McDonnell-Douglas Astronautics’ Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL). In Denver years of expertise come from the time employed Hughes Aircraft and Raytheon at Buckley Air Force Base tracking satellites, processing downloaded satellite data, and performing control, operation and failure analysis of space-qualified hardware.

As a technical writer he has written documents on projects involving command/control and signal processing systems, and user manuals for a publisher of civil engineering and animation software.

As an Affiliate Professor of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology at MSU Denver he brings these years of expertise in the aerospace industry into the classroom
