Backed by experience in jet-aircraft engine and R&D testing at GM Indianapolis while in college, Dr. White officially commenced his career with Rockwell International in Anaheim, California, where he was an engineer from 1959 to 1968, a manager from 1968 to 1984, and a senior scientist until 1990. Moving onto new opportunities, Dr. White served as president of Signal Processing and Controls Engineering Space Corp. from 1990 to 2003, then joining a private practice and serving as a teaching assistant and lab technology expert at Purdue University. He has also taught at the University of California systems and served as an industry consultant.

Throughout his illustrious career, Dr. White has acquired 82 U.S. patents and over 20 foreign patents in his field. He has been commended for his contributions on numerous occasions. Most recently, in 2005, he was granted the Vladimir Karapetoff Outstanding Technology Achievement Award from Eta Kappa Nu, of which he is the international director emeritus. He was the recipient of the Golden Jubilee Medal from the Institute of Electric and Electronics Engineers in 1999 and a Boeing North America Aviation Top Inventor Award in 1998, among numerous other honors. A contributor to professional scientific journals, Dr. White is a conscious community member and gives back through organizations and missions in his local area of San Clemente.
