Length of service at CBU: Dr. Bedrossian has been teaching at CBU since 1991.
Formal Education: Dr. Bedrossian earned his B.S. in electrical engineering (minor in mathematics) from Christian Brothers University; his M.S. in computer science and Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Memphis.
Professional Interests: Dr. Bedrossian is interested in optimization problems related to Graph Theory. He designed and implemented a Final Exam Schedule for CBU that allows for some classes to have a common final exam, while others stay scheduled based on the class meeting time. The schedule does not contain any conflicts and minimizes the number of final exams a student will have to take on any given day during the final exam week.
