Dr. Kopp joined the faculty of Jacksonville University in December 2020. He came to JU with over 25 years of industry experience and nine years of university teaching experience. He received his Ph.D, MS, and BS all in electrical engineering from New Mexico State University (NMSU). His Ph.D. research regarding the synchronization of high order modulation schemes in satellite communication links was conducted for the NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center.
Dr. Kopp’s industry experience includes co-founding a high-tech start-up to manufacture spread-spectrum wireless data modems for industrial markets. The company introduced the first explosion proof unlicensed wireless data modem for the petrochemical industry. The majority of his industrial experience, however, has been as a consultant. He founded a consulting company in 1997 which provides services including system design and performance analysis, as well as product development.
In 2011, after accumulating more than two-decades of industry experience, Dr. Kopp returned to the university setting, to teach and conduct research in electrical engineering. He has taught a broad spectrum of electrical engineering topics and he has helped secure almost $900,000 in funded research. His joint research in green energy, with experts in the field of coastal engineering, has produced four patents.
Dr. Kopp is a registered professional electrical engineer in the State of Florida. He is also a licensed amateur radio operator and holds FCC extra class license callsign KC5LPA as well as FCC General Radio Operator License PG00022479 with a radar endorsement. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, an invited member of the Radio Club of America, and an invited member of the NMSU Electrical and Computer Engineering Academy.
Research Interests: Terrestrial wireless and satellite-based communications, radio frequency spectrum management and interference mitigation, green energy and instrumentation solutions for environmental coastal engineering projects.

Murat Tiryakioğlu is an engineering education pioneer, transformational academic leader, internationally-recognized researcher, and a passionate advocate of service learning to help community.
He studied Mechanical Engineering before receiving advanced degrees in engineering management and metallurgy.
Dr. Tiryakioğlu grew up around his family's business, a nonferrous foundry. After receiving his PhD, he worked at the Boeing Company, in Wichita, Kansas briefly before moving on to academic life in 1995. He taught at Western Kentucky University where he founded the Advanced Manufacturing Institute. In 2001, he started at Robert Morris University (Pittsburgh, PA) where he served as a University (Distinguished) Professor of manufacturing engineering and was recognized for his service-learning activities involving local manufacturers. Dr. Tiryakioglu moved to Jacksonville, FL in 2010 to continue his career as the Director of School of Engineering at the University of North Florida, and stepped down from this position in 2018 as the longest-serving director in School's history. He joined JU in 2019. Since moving to Jacksonville, Dr. Tiryakioglu has collaborated with Community Excellence Alliance to engage students in problem solving and continuous improvement methods and their applications to help overcome issues in non-profit organizations in Jacksonville, with an estimated financial impact of well over $5 million.
