The Gaming Program Everyone’s Talking About: Q&A with Bob Kessler, Director of University of Utah's Entertainment Arts & Engineering Program

The son of a rocket scientist, Robert (Bob) Kessler was arguably destined for studies that were out-of-this-world. But it wasn’t the darkness of space that drew his attention; instead, it was the emerging new world of computer science that sucked him in with the force of a black hole. Earning a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in the subject from the University of Utah during the 1970s, Kessler worked in software R&D and founded several companies before turning his attention back to his alma mater as a faculty member in the School of Computing.
