Ronald Carson (BS '76)

After 27 years at Boeing I retired as a Technical Fellow in Systems Engineering. During that time I worked on commercial and military airplanes, satellite communications (five patents), and developed methods for requirements engineering (two patents).

I now teach part-time for Seattle Pacific University (undergraduate Engineering) and Missouri University of Science & Technology (graduate Systems Engineering). It was great to reconnect with Steve Mitchell (BS 77) through the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE). I continue to be active in INCOSE as a Fellow, certified Expert Systems Engineering Professional (ESEP), and member of the measurement working group.

Retirement provides more time for travel with my wife, Merrie, D.Min. and pastor, and visiting with four children and a growing number of grandchildren (six and counting) in the Seattle, WA area.
