My wife Martha and I both enjoy hiking, camping, and the great outdoors. My hobbies include the Appalachian Dulcimer, swimming, Star Trek, and garden gnomes. I have always wanted to teach, and am excited to start out his college teaching career helping Taylor University Engineering students become skilled in and passionate about their discipline. It’s the McClurg family goal to help students discover the joy of worshiping God through work, no matter what their expertise or occupation.


I received a B.S. and an M.S. degree from the University of Iowa, another M.S. degree from the University of Illinois and a Ph.D. form the University of Iowa. My previous work experience includes working as a programmer at Rockwell Collins in college, a master’s student electronics hardware junkie at the University of Illinois, a doctoral student big data wrangler at the University of Iowa. I am currently an assistant professor teaching undergraduate electronics at Taylor University. I enjoy STEM education at all academic levels, and have done a variety of volunteer work in that area.
