Biography and Education

Michael W. Putty received the BSEE, MSEE, Ph.D. EE degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1983, 1989, and 1995 respectively.  He is currently LEO Lecturer III at the University of Michigan Dearborn.  Dr. Putty spent over 25 years in the MEMS semiconductor and electronics industries having worked at Integrated Sensing Systems, Delphi Research Labs, and General Motors Research Labs developing MEMS sensor and electronic components.  While at General Motors Research Labs he developed a micromachined ring gyroscope that is still being manufactured in high volume today.  Before that he worked at Eaton Corporation developing microprocessor control systems for heavy duty vehicles.  Dr. Putty has expertise in the areas of MEMS, semiconductor devices, analog design, digital design, digital signal processing, and controls.
