Hank Etlinger is Associate Professor and Undergraduate Program Coordinator of the Department of Computer Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology.  Professor Etlinger has taught primarily introductory programming courses, database courses, courses in software engineering, and courses that focus on professional communication for over thirty years.  He helped launch software engineering as a separate discipline at RIT by participating on the task force that drafted the original software engineering degree proposal.  In addition, he was a co-investigator for an NSF funded grant as well as an RIT Productivity Grant that that led to the creation of some of the initial software engineering courses and labs.  Professor Etlinger is active in reviewing prospective textbooks for major publishers in many areas of computer science, software engineering, mathematics, and technical communications, having produced over 550 such reviews since 1983.
