Andrew P. Tokash

Professional Lecturer of Computer Science


Before coming to Marist, Andrew had more than three decades of computer industry experience. Working at IBM in Poughkeepsie, his career included roles in hardware engineering, process development, and both mechanical and industrial engineering.  He also has extensive software experience in a variety of programming languages and was responsible for architecting and coding two worldwide logistics applications.

He capped off his career at IBM as a senior engineer and project manager.   His projects included migrating software applications, transferring manufacturing operations to other sites, constructing clean rooms and test environments, and outsourcing assembly operations.  His noise abatement project, a first for IBM Poughkeepsie, was a key factor in the site receiving the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Voluntary Protection Program “STAR” award.

Andrew was an adjunct professor at Marist for several years before joining the full-time faculty.   He teaches courses from each of the computer science disciplines: computer science, information systems, and information technology.
