Professional Summary

  • Assistant Professor, January 2000 - August 2005
  • Associate Professor, September 2005 - August 2017
  • Professor, September 2017 - present

Dr. Bari is a faculty member at Eastern Michigan University, presently implementing and
coordinating the undergraduate program in electronic engineering technology. In the fall of
1997, he defended his dissertation and earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the
University of Arkansas. The problem he chose for his research is the control of a stochastic,
nonlinear and uncertain model using adaptive control systems, including a modified extended
Kalman filter and neural networks. Results from his dissertation were published in the proceeding
of the IEEE Conference on decision and control. Dr. Bari has over 20 years of teaching
experience and several years of industrial experience as an electrical engineer. He has taught a
broad range of electronics courses and is experienced in ABET-accredited curriculum
development. He was instrumental in developing 3+1 Articulation Agreement with area
community colleges, which enabled students to transfer the associate of electronics technology
degree program and general education coursework into the electronics engineering technology
program without loss of credit hours. He also directed and successfully completed a project
funded by NSF for establishing an instrumentation and calibration lab.
