Additional Information

Jack W. Phlipot has been an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Indiana Tech since 2005. In addition to teaching he is also the Academic Advisor to the students in this program.

Prior to joining Academia, Jack spent almost twenty years in Warsaw working in the medical devices manufacturing industry in the fields of engineering and marketing; honing his communication skills and, unknowingly, developing his teaching philosophy. Teaching a wide variety of courses and continuously striving to improve the growing BME program keeps him very connected with his students.

He credits his extensive use of “relationship-based education” as the reason why his program retains a high percentage of students through graduation.
