Award-Winning Instructor Helps Students Reach Their Own Conclusions
July 19, 2013
Dr. Emmanuel Nyeanchi believes the best way to connect with his students is to create an engaging and challenging classroom environment. “It is important to pose questions to students that enable them to think critically and to reach conclusions on their own,” Dr. Nyeanchi says. Today, Dr. Nyeanchi continues to use the knowledge he gained during his postdoctoral work in South Africa and Sweden to facilitate the undergraduate and graduate courses he teaches in information systems and mathematics at the Virginia Beach Campus.
In recognition of Dr. Nyeanchi’s proven teaching methods, he was presented with the prestigious Dr. Joel Nwagbaraocha Faculty Leadership Award at the regional commencement ceremony at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
Originally from Cameroon, Dr. Nyeanchi completed his postdoctoral research in physics and materials science, and has since been published in more than 13 peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. In 2012, he served as a subject matter expert in developing the cybercrimes techniques and response course at Strayer University.
Prior to joining Strayer University in 2003, Dr. Nyeanchi worked as a software engineer for Engineering Support Personnel Inc., a provider of technical and engineering services. In this role, he developed crisis scenario simulation software that assisted the U.S. Navy’s training systems. Dr. Nyeanchi holds a bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Hull in England, and a master’s degree and a doctorate in physics from the University of Sussex in England.
