BSEE, University of Puerto Rico, 1975; MSEE, San Diego State, 1978; MBA Southwestern Nova University, 1986

My name is Guillermo A. (Willie) Hernandez. I go by Prof. Willie. I was born in Manati, Puerto Rico many moons ago.

I have been teaching at De Anza for over 15 years now. I have taught many different courses during this time, shared many experiences with my students and have learned from them as well.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineer (BSEE), a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering (MSEE), with a major in Computer Systems Design. I worked in Research and Development for 15 years. However, in 1985, I completed my Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA), with concentration in Finance and Marketing of New Products. Since 1988 I have been working in marketing as a Product Manager. A Product Manager is responsible for managing the entire life cycle of a product portfolio. A Product Manager also has profit and loss (P&L) responsibility for the products we manage.

I moved to California in 1990 as a result of Siemen's acquisition of a competitor. I moved to San Jose, California as part of the transition team to work with the newly acquired company managing the Data Products line for the company. As a result of the experience I have accumulated, I love to teach and share what I have learned. I have also taught at other educational Institutions like University of Phoenix were I taught in the Business and IT College computer programming courses.

I look forward in continuing to share experiences with my students and learn from each other.
