Dr. Yacob Astatke completed both his Doctor of Engineering and B.S.E.E. degrees from Morgan State University (MSU) and his M.S.E.E. from Johns Hopkins University. He has been a full time faculty member in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at MSU since August 1994 and currently serves as the Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies. Dr. Astatke is the winner of the 2012-2013 American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Mid-Atlantic Region Distinguished Teacher Award. The Mid-Atlantic division includes engineering schools from 6 states : Maryland, Washington DC, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.

Dr. Astatke teaches courses in both analog and digital electronic circuit design and instrumentation, with a focus on wireless communication. He has more than 15 years’ experience in the development and delivery of synchronous and asynchronous web-based course supplements for electrical engineering courses. He has published over 35 papers and presented his research work at regional, national and international conferences.

He also runs several exciting summer camps geared towards middle school, high school, and community college students to expose and increase their interested in pursuing Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Examples are the “Rube Goldberg Engineering Design” camp funded by Innovative STEM Solutions (ISTEMS) in collaboration with Arizona State and Purdue University, the “Balloon Satellite Payload Design” camp funded by the Maryland Space Grant Consortium and NASA in collaboration with University of Maryland at College Park, and the “Smart Lighting Engineering Research” camp funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in collaboration with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Howard University and Boston University. He is also the founder (in 2000) and Director of the “Foundations of Mathematics” summer program, which is a 5 week online summer math course offered for FREE to all pre-freshman engineering students admitted to the university.

Dr. Astatke has been travelling to Ethiopia for the past 10 years to teach graduate courses, or provide training and guest lectures related to the use of the Mobile Studio Technology and pedagogy in the ECE department of Addis Ababa University (AAU), Hawassa University. He successfully organized a STEM conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in May 2012 that was attended by faculty and students from 5 universities in Ethiopia.

    Knowing the TPLF/Shabia/OLF, they will do anything against the success of Ethiopians and the success of Ethiopia so they will make this great man's life difficult so that he won't help his people in Ethiopia. This is my friends, is the action of fellow of Africans, so that none of us can be successful that is why Africa will never mount to anything as long as we have people like with inferiority.
