Representative Industrial Projects
Dr. George F. Corliss, MU EECE



Umlaut Casting
Web site development
Compuware & Aurora Health Care
I spent a sabbatical leave from June 1, 1998 - August 13, 1999 as a senior systems analyst at Compuware, a large, international computer consulting firm that employs several of my former students. Compuware placed me at Aurora Health Care doing Y2K project management. See Sabbatical News for more information.
