Christopher Nurre

Director, Professional Services Group
Institute for Smart, Secure and Connected Systems (ISSACS)

Chris Nurre leads the ISSACS professional services group, which engages with faculty to identify and customize (or build) the best approach to fulfill custom IoT technology requirements—devices, sensors, software, apps—to support their research. The professional services group also provides an additional mechanism for engaging faculty and students on industry-sponsored projects, particularly short-term, proof-of-concept or pilot projects.

The added option of working with the professional services group also provides additional hands-on opportunities for students, working with industry professionals to solve real-world problems.

Chris is an experienced coach, developer, engineer and agilest who enjoys working with a team to tackle challenges that span technology and business. He brings broad experience in project management and technology development—web, mobile apps, custom electronics and more.

Nurre has led the development of mobile, web and embedded applications, including developing one of the first iPad applications in the Apple App Store. He’s coached enterprises, from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, as they adopted new engineering practices.
