Meet Brian Thomas

From the workplace
to the classroom, 
Brian Thomas, Ph.d., brings his real–world experience to students.

B.S., mechanical engineering, M.S., industrial engineering, Ph.D., P.E. – The Ohio State University

This is my first year teaching in the design engineering technology department at Trine. I enjoy coaching students through problems and working alongside them as they learn how to solve engineering problems.

Before coming to Trine, I worked as a manufacturing engineering in the consumer products and automotive industries. This career often required an interdisciplinary approach to solving the problems big companies face.

In my free time, I enjoy coaching youth soccer, biking and other outdoor activities.
