David Burghardt - Burghardt holds PhD and MS degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Connecticut and a BS from the US Merchant Marine Academy. He is Chair of Engineering at Hofstra, former Chair of Computer Science, and the author of ten texts in thermodynamics, diesel engines and engineering fundamentals. Burghardt founded the Hofstra Center for Technological Literacy to enhance technological literacy of K-12 students on Long Island. The Center quickly extended its reach to include New York State in its entirety. With support and collaboration of local industry and the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), the Center has hosted teacher workshops, engineering design competitions, and large-scale funded projects. Under Burghardt's leadership, the Center has also won multiple National Science Foundation grants.
