Chuck Bunting was employed at the Naval Aviation Depot in Norfolk, VA as an apprentice, an electronics mechanic, and an electronics measurement equipment mechanic from 1981-1989. From 1991-1994 he held a Bradley Fellowship and a DuPont Fellowship and in 1994 he was awarded the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech. From 1994 to 2001 Dr. Bunting was an assistant/associate professor at Old Dominion University in the Department of Engineering Technology where he worked closely with NASA Langley Research Center on electromagnetic field penetration in aircraft structures and reverberation chamber simulation using finite element techniques.
In the Fall of 2001 he joined the faculty of Oklahoma State University as an associate professor and was promoted to full professor in August of 2011. His chief interests are engineering education, applied computational electromagnetics, statistical electromagnetics, electromagnetic characterization and application of reverberation chambers, and the analysis and development of near infrared tomography and microwave acoustic tomography for prostate cancer detection.

Dr. Bunting’s research focus on modeling and validation has led to numerous research grants and contracts with both industry and government. His engineering education research has led to national visibility in impacting large courses with problem-based learning. His significant professional activities in the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society include membership on the board of directors, designation as a distinguished lecturer, and offices on numerous standards and technical committees.
