Remembrance of Steve Dombrowski

By John Wen and the ECSE Department

Longtime ECSE technical staff member Steve Dombrowski passed away on November 11, 2021. Steve was with Rensselaer and ECSE for 42 years. He was instrumental in creating and maintaining an outstanding laboratory learning environment for students and faculty. Over four decades, his support helped thousands of students become engineers. He was an encyclopedia of knowledge and a craftsman like no other. 

Steve was a smiling face every morning; he went out of his way to see how you were doing and always stopped to hear about your day. During the pandemic, Steve was critical to the successful deployment of the new initiative of outfitting all incoming ECSE students with ADALM 1000 Active Learning Modules and accessory boards to enable them to conduct labs and learn remotely. 

Steve has been the longtime advisor for the RPI Amateur Radio Club W2SZ. We will miss him for the good person and the good colleague he was.
