Dr. Ofoli received his B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana, in 1999, and the M.Eng. degree and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Howard University, Washington, DC, in 2002 and 2006, respectively. During his graduate studies at Howard University, he developed and implemented real-time control algorithms for industrial applications using advance digital control, adaptive control techniques and intelligent control for alternative energy systems, drives, automation and power networks. He was the recipient of the 2006 IEEE/IAS Transaction Second Prize Paper Award.
Prior to joining the UTC in August 2010, Dr Ofoli has been working with Cummins, Inc., at their headquarters in Columbus, IN, as a senior controls engineer for four years. At Cummins, he developed and implemented real-time control algorithms and strategies for diesel automotive applications to meet specific control objectives with the major one being the 2010 EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) emission standard for diesel engines. He has received four patents for his work at Cummins.
In April 2013 at UTC, Dr. Ofoli received the Outstanding Faculty Teacher Award in the College of Engineering and Computer Science and in 2014, won the Student Government Association (SGA) Outstanding Professor Award at the university level.
