Professor Emeritus of Mathematics & Physics

Professional Education

  • Bachelors of Science - Albright College
  • Masters of Science, Ed.D. - Lehigh University


Dr. Rochowicz received a BS degree in mathematics 1972 from Albright College; an MS degree in mathematics 1974 from Lehigh University; a mathematics secondary teaching certificate 1975 from Albright College and an Ed.D. degree in mathematics/computer science education 1993 from Lehigh University.

A member of the faculty since fall 1984, he has taught every mathematics course in the university catalog, Physics I and II, quantitative methods courses for the PhD in leadership degree and for the online MBA degree for the Pennsylvania Medical Society.
