Meet the Business Faculty

Dr. Kreutzer earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Union College in Schenectady, NY and the Masters of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Computer Science from Northwestern University. At Northwestern, he performed research in both Software Engineering and the applications of Graph Theory to Fault Tolerant Computing.

Prior to joining Bloomfield College, Dr. Kreutzer had a successful twentyfive year career in industry working for AT&T Bell Laboratories, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, and AIG. Early in his career, he worked on software projects as a programmer, business analyst, architect, and project manager. Later in his career, he led internal consulting groups that helped turnaround troubled projects and organizations, improve business processes, and perform technology due diligence on potential acquisition targets and strategic partnerships. In his last major role in industry, he led a software development organization that supported more than one thousand users in the U.S. and U.K. As a technology executive, Dr. Kreutzer has worked on many international projects which included working for several months in Germany and Ireland and travelling to India, Thailand, France, England, Mexico, Brazil, and Canada.

At Bloomfield College, Dr. Kreutzer is the coordinator for the Computer Science program. He has taught the following courses:

1. CMP 100 Computer Literacy
2. CMP 102 Fundamentals of Computer Literacy I
3. CMP 120 Cyber Crime
4. CMP 126 Programming I
5. CMP 226 Programming II
6. CMP 228 Data Structures
7. CMP 300 Systems Analysis and Design
8. CMP 330 Database Management
9. CMP 460 Applied Systems Development Project

He has also revised the curriculum by adding courses in cybercrime and mobile applications development and by arranging for special topics classes to be taught in ethical hacking, electronic medical records, data visualization, and user interface design.

Dr. Kreutzer has attended many computer science conferences. He is also a member of several professional societies including the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education, Consortium for Computing Sciences in Education (CCSE), and the Computer Science Teachers Association. Dr. Kreutzer is an editor of The Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges and the papers chair for the CCSE Eastern Region Conference.

Dr. Suhaib A. Obeidat joined the department of Computer Science at Bloomfield College in the Fall of 2014 as the coordinator of the Network Engineering program. Prior to that, he held the position of Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the Math and Computer Science Department at Bennett College, Greensboro, NC.

His research interests are in the area of Wireless Networks, more specifically, in designing protocols for the transmission of human speech over wireless ad hoc networks using opportunistic crosslayer designs. Currently, Dr. Obeidat’s teaching interests are in Networking Technology, particularly the Cisco Network Administration curricula, web programming for 2and 3tier architectures, and computer programming. He takes special pleasure in tackling new topics and sharing them with his students.
