Faculty & Staff

There are multiple levels of employees within the EAET department: Chair, full-time faculty, affiliate faculty, and staff.

  • The Department Chair is the head of the EAET department and of all the programs.
  • Full-time faculty hold office hours and do advising.  Each program has one full-time faculty member that acts as the Program Coordinator, head of the program.
  • Affiliate faculty are part time instructors; they do not hold office hours and may not teach each semester. Their contact information is found on their program's faculty & staff page.
  • Staff are personnel who run the office and the laboratories.

Aaron Brown is an associate professor in the Department of Engineering and Engineering Technology. He has a Ph.D. in Civil Systems Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a certificate in Engineering for Developing Communities and an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering. He has directed much of his work towards a focus in the areas of Appropriate Design, Humanitarian Engineering, Humanitarian Technology and Sustainable Design. At MSU Denver he has developed curriculum and directed undergraduate research around these topics and also established a humanitarian engineering club that engages students in service-learning engineering activities that benefit vulnerable communities.  Dr. Brown is involved with Engineers without Borders and has worked on projects that help vulnerable people both at the local level and in locations all over the globe. His work has been featured on National Public Radio, the Denver post, and in other local and national level media.  Hee was named "Community Game Changer" by CBS Denver. He is also the recipient of the 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Award which recognizes work “ for the greater good”. He was awarded this for his efforts to promote social justice and peace through capacity building in vulnerable communities.

Professor Brown's background also includes aerospace industry work. Among his notable project contributions were design work on the landing mechanism for the Mars Science Laboratory Rover Mission AKA Curiosity. Mechanism design work for Hubble Robotics and on Global Precipitation Measurement Instrument Missions. Additionally, Professor Brown has worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology designing test equipment to measure stress-strain relationships to superconductor performance.

His past work on the tethering landing mechanism used to lower the Mars rover Curiosity to the Red Planet’s surface is part of a $2.5 billion program NASA says will assess whether the Gale Crater area of Mars has ever had the potential to support a habitable environment
