Grondin taught electrical engineering at Arizona State University for more than 30 years and helped create the Engineering program at the Polytechnic campus. He made great strides in research related to physical limits of electronics as well as engineering pedagogy, multidisciplinary engineering activities and diversity in engineering student populations. Between 1999 and 2004 he served as Director of Student Academic Services in the Dean’s office of what would become the Fulton Schools.
In addition to his work at ASU, he was a senior member of the IEEE and co-authored a book, several book chapters and around 100 presentations and refereed journal articles.
He is survived by his wife, Sonia, daughters Marissa Grondin Page and Diana Escobedo, and grandson Cruz.
