Larry Byrnes is an Adjunct Professor in the University College.


Mr. Byrnes has been an Adjunct Professor since 1995 after retiring from IBM where he was the Technology Consultant for Higher Education.  While working for IBM Mr. Byrnes traveled the world speaking  about the use of technology in the higher education classroom at almost every Higher Education Conference. Before joining IBM in 1966 Mr. Byrnes worked in the Advanced Physics Labs of Bendix Research where he experimented with Magnetic Electron Multiplication for NASA.


Since retiring from IBM Mr. Byrnes earned his MBA at Kennesaw State University and then spent the next two years as the Acting Associate Director for Technology for the Coles College Executive MBA program.


Mr. Byrnes also worked for Xerox as a presentation engineer for Xerox’s LiveBoard, a classroom display system; for Jones Lang LaSalle as the Network Administrator; and for Industrial Development Industries (IDI) as the Technology Engineer.


Mr. Byrnes has been a consultant for IBM, AT&T and Turner Broadcasting. To help stay current with today’s technology and business requirements, Mr. Byrnes also does pro bono technical support for companies too small to employ an IT staff.


Mr. Byrnes is a past member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the New York Academy of Science (NYAS), and he is currently a member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Phi Kappa Phi honor society.


For fun, he works on his Corvette and teaches IT-2101 at Kennesaw State University.

As of 2010 I’m showing my age.
