Dr. David Zietlow, has the right mix of industrial (12 years) and academic experience (14 years) to teach engineers how to design energy systems. He has worked for a consulting engineering firm, has performed several energy audits for commercial and industrial facilities as a Senior Energy Services Representative for Central Illinois Light Company and now as Assistant Director of the Industrial Assessment Center at Bradley University, and has worked as a design engineer in the Climate Control Division of Ford Motor Company.
During the past fourteen years he has integrated this practical knowledge into all his courses to equip, even first semester thermodynamic students, with the tools they need to optimize energy systems. This combined experience, in industry and academia, has given him the perspective to help others understand energy systems, from not just at the component level, but at the system level.
