STC Chair

Bruce McMillinBruce McMillin received his Ph.D. Computer Science from Michigan State University and the BS degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Michigan Technological University. He is a Senior Member of the Computer Society and a Golden Core member. He is a professor of Computer Science and Associate Dean of Engineering and Computing at the Missouri University of Science and Technology and director of its Center for Information Assurance. His work develops fault-tolerant and secure distributed embedded systems for critical infrastructures and he participates in standards activities for the electric smart grid. He is extending this core work in computing and engineering into a Smart Living focus which was represented at the inaugural 2015 IEEE-IEEMA Intelect Conference that spanned three IEEE societies.

McMillin is the current Vice Chair of Membership and Geographical Activities for the Special Technical Communities (STCs) whose mission this year is outreach from the 20+ STCs. He also serves as Member at Large of the Technical and Conference Activities Board Executive Committee.
