Dr. Robertson enjoys the sense of discovery he shares with students, and strives to personalize each learning experience. His guide-on-the-side approach places responsibility “squarely on the students’ shoulders.” This respectful approach creates grads who are self-driven and, therefore, valuable employees. Combining technology and academic theory, Bill provides students with a perfect balance between practical experience and skills.
