Short Bio

Dr. Susko holds a PhD from MIT in mechanical engineering, a Master of Engineering degree in mechanical engineering from Lehigh University and a Bachelor of Science in Integrated Business and Engineering from Lehigh University.  He was the creator of the MIT-Skywalker Gamma prototype, a rehabilitation robot specifically designed for people with gait impairment due to neurological injury.  His industry experience includes the design of an award-winning power tool and small vehicles for Ingersoll Rand and other products for small start-up companies.  Currently, Professor Susko teaches 9 courses in engineering design at UCSB including the mechanical engineering capstone course.  He advises approximately 40 student engineering design projects per year, including those associated with Lab d4H (design for humans), the Isla Vista elementary school robot outreach program and the UCSB Hyperloop team.
