"Only rarely--very rarely--do we hear from students petitioning us to rehire a particular professor simply because they had such an outstanding experience. With his exceptional ability to explain very complex topics in a very accessible manner, Dr. Prutchi is one of those rare breed of professionals." --Robi Polikar, Ph.D. Professor & Chair, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rowan University
