The William States Lee College of Engineering


Teaching the Next Generation

Teaching the next generation of engineers and scientists is a privilege and a responsibility not to be taken lightly. Dr. Roger Tipton has taught the following courses:

  • Measurements and Instruments
  • Machine Analysis and Design
  • Senior Design
  • Foundations of Engineering
  • Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Lab I
  • Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Lab II

Teaching Philosophy

Experiential learning where students apply theory is important in preparing students for life outside the classroom.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

I have made it a point to ensure DEI are meaningfully incorporated into the classroom as appropriate and meaningful to the course content.


Our lab supports a thriving entrepreneurship community in the Charlotte region. Helping students and startups developing new intellectual property, setting up business, developing business plans, and sourcing new funding opportunities is an exciting and rewarding way to support innovation in our community.
