Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

Faculty and Staff of Norwich University
Associate Professor
Electrical and Computer Engineering

David Feinauer, Ph.D., P.E., thrives in the intellectual spaces where concepts and ideas intersect.

In a single conversation, he is apt to relate engineering to art, or higher education to international affairs. He believes that to play is to invent. He missed his calling as a restaurant critic. While earning his PhD at the University of Kentucky, he also worked as an electrical hardware engineer for Lexmark. He volunteers in the community, and loves to laugh. And when he is attached to a project at Norwich, such as the monthly NU IDEA (Imagine Design Execute Adapt) Innovation Challenges, participants flock. 

And, since he arrived at Norwich in 2012, he has put that imagination to use for the benefit of Norwich students and the greater community. FIRST® LEGO® League, the “sports for the mind” robotics competition for 9- to 14-year-olds, had its genesis at Norwich—and in Vermont—as a result of his efforts.

He is the faculty sponsor of the Entrepreneurship Club, and his students have competed across the U.S. The Wheel Pad project became a reality at Norwich because he happened to be at the conference where the model was presented; knowing the project wasn’t in his discipline, he still went to the effort to make the connection that brought the project to Norwich.

Because at his heart, that’s who David is—a person who sees value in interconnectivity.
