There are multiple levels of employees within the EAET department: Chair, full-time faculty, affiliate faculty, and staff.

  • The Department Chair is the head of the EAET department and of all the programs.
  • Full-time faculty hold office hours and do advising.  Each program has one full-time faculty member that acts as the Program Coordinator, head of the program.
  • Affiliate faculty are part time instructors; they do not hold office hours and may not teach each semester. Their contact information is found on their program's faculty & staff page.
  • Staff are personnel who run the office and the laboratories.

B.S., California State University-Chico; M.S., University of Colorado-Boulder; Ph.D., University of Colorado-Boulder; Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Dr. Brown's background includes aerospace industry work. Among his notable project contributions were design work on the landing mechanism for the Mars Science Laboratory Rover Mission AKA Curiosity. Mechanism design work for Hubble Robotics and on Global Precipitation Measurement Instrument Missions. Additionally, Professor Brown has worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology designing test equipment to measure stress-strain relationships to superconductor performance.

His past work on the tethering landing mechanism used to lower the Mars rover Curiosity to the Red Planet’s surface is part of a $2.5 billion program NASA says will assess whether the Gale Crater area of Mars has ever had the potential to support a habitable environment.

His current research interests include electric vehicle optimization and design, robotics, and harvesting solar energy, green energy, and Humanitarian Engineering. He created a course called Humanitarian Engineering, where he took students to Costa Rica for 10 days in January 2013 to work on a water project for a new school.

Recently, Professor Brown completed a PhD degree in Civil System Engineering with a topic in Sustainable Community Development, and implementing technologies that help marginalized communities.

With  limited free time his interests outside of work include cycling (he is an ex-professional bike racer), skiing, hiking, travel and exploring other cultures.
