Fred Keller, professor of Computer Information Technology and Cyber Security, is a recent addition to the Rose State College Department of Business and Information Technology.

“We are so fortunate to have Fred join the faculty. Students will certainly benefit from his diverse background and extensive knowledge working in both government agencies and the public sector,” said Mark Tippin, dean of the Business and Information Technology Division.

Keller’s first experience at Rose State began in the early 1980s when he was enrolled in the electrical engineering technology program. He then went on to work at Tinker Air Force Base and continued his education at the University of Oklahoma, ultimately completing a master’s degree at Oklahoma State University. Keller had an 18-year career at OU as director of IT Facilities where he was hired as part of a team that redesigned the campus computer network.

“I’ve always promoted Rose State and been a strong advocate of the college,” Keller said. “I was pleasantly surprised to revisit Rose State years later to discover the addition of student housing, a robust curriculum and program offering and the high quality of faculty. I’m so proud to be able to return to Rose State and give something back to the institution that was so influential in shaping my career path.”

Keller previously taught digital signal processing as an adjunct professor at Rose State and will now be instructing courses on networks, network security and operating systems, and cyber security
