is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He
teaches digital systems and computer hardware courses and the senior
capstone design course. In recent years he has pursued a long-term
interest in teaching methodologies. He has worked with his faculty
colleagues to explore teaching improvements through a program that
includes a weekly colloquium, periodic faculty workshops, and an
outside-speaker program. Outside of work, he enjoys reading detective
novels and cooking experimental dishes.
Don César Malavé (he
prefers this title to Doctor or Professor) is the ultimate puertorrican.
He loves the sea, the sun, good Latin music (yes, there is also bad
Latin music, such as that done by performers like Ricky Martin), rum
and coke (or Cuba libre, as nonpuertorricans refer to this famous
drink), his wife, his kids, and God (the order has nothing to do with
importance). Don César is a full-time dad and husband and a
part-time associate professor of Industrial Engineering. His dream
is to one day retire and move to a beachfront house on the beautiful
island of Puerto Rico. He will then spend the rest of his life playing
his percussion instruments, playing with his grandchildren, and teaching
at a local universityjust for fun.
