Teaching

You left industry to become an academic. Why?

Bjarne: Actually, I haven’t completely left industry, because I maintain a link to AT&T Labs as an AT&T fellow, and spend much time each year with industry people. I consider my connection with industry essential because that’s what keeps my work anchored in reality.

I went to Texas A&M University as a professor five years ago because (after almost 25 years in “The Labs”) I felt a need for a change and because I thought I had something to contribute in the area of education. I also entertained some rather idealistic ideas about doing more fundamental research after my years of very practical research and design.
