PROFESSIONAL PROFILE:

John Seiffertt
Assistant Professor of Computer Science
Truman State University
Gamma Theta Chapter
John Seiffertt is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Truman State University in Kirksville, MO. He
received his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology in 2009
and also holds graduate degrees in Mathematics and Economics. His research is in the areas of machine
learning and agent-based modeling. He has published work in IEEE Transactions journals, presented papers
at international conferences, and his most recent book is the "Digital Logic for Computing" (Springer, 2017).
With interests across the field, from embedded systems to Turing machines, he is an award-winning teacher
committed to helping undergraduates grow both intellectually and professionally.
Why did you choose to study
the engineering field?
Computers are the transformative technology of
our time and I was drawn to learning all about them,
from their abstract capabilities to how to effectiely
deploy them.

What don't you like about it?
Though engineers don't talk about it, computing
does have its limits. Computer scientists discuss this
a great deal, but in engineering it's not quite frontof-mind yet. We must be careful to consider what
algorithms do and not let them loose without close
supervision in some contexts.

What do you love about it?
Through computing, you can reach so many fields
across all of science and technology. You get to
work with many domains and see the power of the
computer realized in many exciting environments.

THE BRIDGE

Whom do you admire and why?
These days I admire many of my students who trust
the process, code on their own outside of class,
read widely, value personal as well as professional
development, and are grateful for having a breadth
of knowledge. From among these will come our
best engineers over the next few decades
