Dr. James R. Andrews
Class of 1959
After completing his Ph.D., Dr. Andrews worked for the US National Bureau of Standards (now NIST) in Boulder, Colorado until 1979, where he designed oscilloscopes and pulse generators. He published over 60 papers and was granted 3 patents; he was elected a Fellow in IEEE, a professional electrical engineering society. Dr. Andrews founded Picosecond Pulse Labs in 1980 and served as President until 1999. The company makes high-speed electronic test instruments and components. After receiving an Entrepreneur of Distinction Award from the Boulder Chamber of Commerce in 2001, Dr. Andrews retired from Picosecond Pulse Labs.
Dr. Andrews and his wife have recently established the James and Janet Andrews Turner High School/Kansas University Engineering Scholarship. The Scholarship pays all tuition and fees for up to five years of study, or until a degree is earned, to a deserving Turner High School graduate interested in studying engineering at Kansas University.
