Professor Erich Connell

Full Professor


Erich Connell has had an inherent interest in solving problems from an early age. What started with building forts, redesigning a bicycle, and creating a behind-the-boat submarine matured into creating buildings, land plans and logos, to creating the best quality designed product. His dissertation topic is related to 'experiential learning' and how it impacts the design process of architects.

Erich practiced 10-years as an Architect, working with peers and colleagues that included Irving Phillips, Charles Moore, Ken Yeang, William Peña, Frank Welch, Rodney Hill, Manfred Sabatke, Franz-Joseph Schattner, and Sam Rashkin. He received his doctoral degree in Architecture from Texas A&M University in 1996.

Erich has lived abroad and in many states in the U.S.

Living in Mississippi he appreciates the music, food and genuine people that he gets to experience along the way!
