My name is Mark Kyle.  I received my BSIET in 1995, and my MSQA in 1998, both from SPSU.  I started teaching for SPSU in Fall, 1998 as a part-time faculty member.  I also taught full-time from Fall 2015-Summer 2017 in addition to working a "regular" full-time job.  I continued with the SPSU School of Engineering as a department within Kennesaw State University after the consolidation of SPSU into KSU in the Fall of 2015.
