Mr. Hite's interests are in engineering education and laboratory development. Specifically he is interested in how laboratory experiences influence learning and engineering education. Prior to his appointment to Lecturer he served six years as laboratory manager at UAHuntsville. A significant part of this position was in laboratory curriculum and exercise development. During this time he co-authored four in-house laboratory manuals and several standalone laboratory experiments. As Lecturer he has co-authored a textbook, Fundamental Concepts in Electrical and Computer Engineering with Practical Design Problems, which takes a hands-on approach to introductory engineering which includes modular laboratory exercises. In addition he has co-authored several refereed journal articles aimed toward education and laboratory apparatus.
