About Me

I am a faculty member in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University. I was also an undergraduate there, earning a BSE, MS, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and completing the departmental requirements for a BSE in Electrical Engineering.

Name Pronunciation

The way my family pronounces it, "Michael Gustafson" sounds like "MY-kull GUST-of-sun." Like gust of wind. Without the wind. Apparently the IPA version is /ˈmaɪkəl ˈɡʌstʌvsʌn/. Not sure that helps, really...

Current Courses

For the Spring 2018 semester I am teaching the following courses:

  • EGR 103: Computational Methods in Engineering
  • ECE 110: Fundamentals of ECE
  • EGR 224: Electrical Fundamentals of Mechatronics


Lots. This whole site, for example... And:

Edit - I have opted for the standard signature on here, since it takes up so much less room... DukeEgr93 21:55, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
