Matthew Tennyson, PhD; Assistant Professor in Computer Science

Email: mtennyson@murraystate.edu
Phone: 270-809-6217

Matthew earned his B.S. in computer engineering from Rose-Hulman in 1999. After graduating, he worked at Caterpillar, developing embedded systems for various types of earth-moving machinery. Later at CAT, Matthew developed and supported various web applications, developed and supported the electrical harness design process and related software, and trained engineers in the usage of the process and software. In 2004, while still at Caterpillar, Matthew earned his M.S. in computer science from Bradley. A few years later, he decided to make a drastic life and career change and re-enter the world of academia full-time.

He began teaching at Heartland Community College and Midstate College, and started pursuing a Ph.D. at Nova Southeastern University. Shortly after enrolling at Nova, Matthew obtained a position as director of the CIS and MIS programs at Midstate College. After about two years at Midstate, he left to join the CSIS department at Bradley University as a lecturer. He completed his PhD in 2013. He then joined Murray State University as an assistant professor of computer science.

Matthew's teaching and research interests include software engineering, programming practice and theory, and computer science education.

Matthew is involved in several community-outreach programs, especially those dealing with K through 12 STEM education. These activities include the facilitation of hands-on workshops for K-12 students in coordination with Computer Science Education Week and National Lab Day. Matthew is also involved in professional activities, such as language editor for an academic journal and a conference peer reviewer. Matthew also serves on various committees as needed.
