Center of Excellence names new associate director| April 24, 2013
Czarnecki, an Apalachin resident, brings three decades of experience at Lockheed Martin and IBM to his new role. He most recently served as advanced technology director for new ventures in Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Training business area, which includes the Lockheed Martin facility in Owego.
“I’m excited to be joining Binghamton University,” Czarnecki said. “The possibilities are endless. While I’m sad to be leaving Lockheed Martin, at the same time I’m honored to become part of a team that’s shaping a world-class university. Great things are happening right here in our backyard.”
Czarnecki did his undergraduate work at General Motors Institute, now named Kettering University, before earning two master’s degrees and a doctorate in electrical engineering and computer science from Princeton University. He holds several U.S. patents and has twice received Lockheed Martin’s Nova Award for teamwork. His previous connections with Binghamton University include 15 years as an adjunct lecturer in electrical engineering as well as a role on the industrial advisory board for the Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering.
