About Peter Detkin
Peter Detkin received his B.S.E.E. with honors in 1982 from the University of Pennsylvania's Moore School of Electrical Engineering and a J.D. in 1985 from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Peter serves as a member of the Board of Overseers of the University of Pennsylvania School of Engineering and Applied Science. He jokes about the gift to the school of engineering - while working in the electrical engineering laboratory as a freshman, he crossed two wires and received such a strong electrical shock that he kicked his legs forward while on his castor-rolling chair, causing him to propel himself backwards until he hit the rear wall behind him. Obviously, judging from his track record, Detkin survived intact. Peter visits the Detkin Lab often and loves to see students showing off projects.
