Associate Professor • Program Director, Computer Engineering
Andy Gean Ye received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2004. He also received his B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. degrees from the same university in 1996 and 1999, respectively. In 1996, he graduated first in class in the Engineering Science program; and from 1999 to 2000, he participated in the development of the Ultragizmo board for the University of Toronto Undergraduate Microprocessor Laboratory.
