John Kidder


Professor and Chair

I joined the Vermont State University faculty in 2002 and immediately found it to be an exciting and rewarding place to teach. I currently serve as the chair of the Department of Engineering and teach courses in materials science, processing, and other engineering topics. At Vermont State I run the ski building lab and work with students in the manufacturing club fabricating skis and snowboards. Outside of work I enjoy sailing, skiing, and spending time with my family.
