Prof. John C. Knight

knight-closecrop Our dear friend and colleague, John C. Knight passed away Thursday, February 23, 2017 after a courageous battle with hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

We will celebrate his life and work this Tuesday, Feb. 28th at 4:00 in MEC 205.

He joined our department in 1981 after seven years at NASA Langley, and has been a passionate champion of CS education and safety-critical systems over his entire career. He retired this past May, but stayed just as busy as ever with his research. John had a sharp wit, which he used equally to entertain us and goad us. He was a wonderful colleague and mentor to so many of us. It’s really hard to imagine the department and school without him. He will be greatly missed.
