His research interests are in the area of Software Engineering, specifically reverse engineering and program comprehension, software evolution and maintenance and software design. Dr. Rugaber has served as Program Director for the Software Engineering and Languages Program at the U. S. National Science Foundation and as as Vice-Chairman of the IEEE Technical Committee on Reverse Engineering.
- Eric Feron - Eric Feron has been the Dutton-Ducoffe Professor of Aerospace Software Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology since 2005. Prior to that, he was on the faculty of MIT's department of Aeronautics and Astronautics from 1993 until 2005. He holds his BS, MS and PhD degrees from Ecole Polytechnique, France, Ecole Normale Suprieure, France and Stanford University, United States. Eric Feron's interests are to use fundamental concepts of control systems, optimization and computer science to address important problems in aerospace engineering, including: Aerobatic control of unmanned aerial vehicles, multi-agent operations, including air traffic control systems and aerospace software system certification. Eric Feron has published two books and several research papers; his former research students are distributed throughout academia, government and industry. He is an advisor to the Academy of Technologies, France. When he is not in his office, Eric Feron may be found sailing along the coast of Florida. http://www.feron.org/Eric/
Udacity is a for-profit educational organization founded by Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, and Mike Sokolsky offering massive open online courses (MOOCs). According to Thrun, the origin of the name Udacity comes from the company's desire to be "audacious for you, the student". While it originally focused on offering university-style courses, it now focuses more on vocational courses for professionals.
