Department of Software and IT Engineering
With more than 15 years experience in research and development, professor Christopher Fuhrman specializes in software design and software verification and validation (V&V). His current research interests are in software design, namely visualizing the stability of software.

Before becoming a professor at the ETS in 2001, he developed Macintosh telecommunications software at Apple in the start of the 1990s. From 1991 to 1996 he worked at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in the Applied Computer Science laboratory, where he completed his PhD. In 2000, he worked at the NASA Independent Verification and Validation Facility (IV&V) as project manager for the ASSET project awarded to Ultra Electronics ProLogic.


I am focusing my research primarily on software stability. For more information about my research interests, refer to my Research page.


I primarily teach design courses in the undergraduate and master's Software Engineering programs. For more information about the courses I teach, please visit my Teaching page.
