Erick Butler

Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering

“Students are visual and relational. We must be engaging in the classroom and have practical examples that will not only prepare them for the real world, but also commit to creative ways that can assist in their learning process. I hope my students understand my strong commitment to this mission when I teach my courses.”

Dr. Paul Haiduk

H. Paul Haiduk

Instructor of Computer Sciences

"Computer science trains students to really understand the inner workings of computing devices and software. Thus, our job in the computer science program is to train students to be Jedi warriors in the world of hacking and to always be vigilant against the Sith (the dark side hackers bent upon destruction, power, etc.). Students studying Computer Science can expect to work incredibly hard.  Those who are successful can expect significant rewards, not the least of which are $$$$. May the Force be with you."

Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering

"At West Texas A&M University, I have the opportunity to teach smaller size classes.  I enjoy teaching in this environment because it allows more interaction between the students and the faculty.  This also translates to a higher quality of teaching where the faculty has more time to mentor to individual students."

Dr. Pilaka Murty

Dr. Pilaka Murty

Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering

"If students enroll in my class they can expect much, much more than what one could expect in some other classes. Although I would like to keep it my trade secret, I may say that students really enjoy my classes because I act as a facilitator and give the students full freedom to learn through meaningful interaction, treating students with full respect as individuals. I always strengthen the strong points in each student individually and reduce or eliminate the effect of weaknesses. I take personal interest in each of my students and help them achieve their professional goals."
