Hello everyone. My name is Brian Warnecke. I have 20 years of experience as an engineer, instructor, and technical trainer. For most of my industry career, I have also worked as a part-time college instructor at the same time. I enjoy giving back some of what I have learned to others.  

My most recent industry experience was in the semiconductor manufacturing industry with Micron Technology in Manassas, Va. Outside of work, I enjoy bicycling, hiking, kayaking, gardening, and anything outside. I also am a (very) amateur cryptocurrency miner. 

Educational Background 

I have a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, as well as a Master of Arts in Mathematics Education from Western Governors University. 


Expect to find lots of labs and activities in my classes. Engineering and computer science are all about problem solving, and I believe that you learn problem solving by solving problems. So, expect to be challenged with design problems in many of the classes I instruct. 

Having the privilege of being a faculty advisor for the CSM Talon Robotics team in 2020 and 2021 has been the highlight of my time at CSM. This group of students faced many challenges in just having a team and being able to compete amid all the coronavirus restrictions. In the end, they ended up ranked No. 30 in the U.S. among teams from colleges and universities.  


The students at CSM are the best. I have never worked with a group of students who put forth such effort in their classes. I am very fortunate to be able to instruct such a great group of students.  

If you are a good problem solver, think about taking engineering or computer science classes. It can be quite rewarding to solve a new problem placed in front of you. There is a famous quote describing engineering that says, "Engineers create what has never been." If that sounds like a challenge you want to take on, I would love to see you in one of my classes.
