Having professional experience is part of what makes the NEIT faculty great. Another aspect is our faculty’s ability to communicate complex ideas to a wide audience.
Publishing a book highlights this expertise. Here are few works published by our faculty:
Timothy Henry’s book, Data Abstractions & Problem Solving with C++ : Walls & Mirrors won the national McGuffey Longevity Award in 2016. This award recognizes textbooks whose excellence endures; books must be in print over 15 years and continue to sell. Another popular advanced programming textbook by Dr. Henry is Data Structures and Abstractions with Java. The impact of these books has made Dr. Henry a notable and valuable resource in the profession.
He is now updating A Gift of Fire: Social, Legal, and Ethical Issues for Computing Technology for its 5th edition, to be published in the spring of 2017.
