Joe has been teaching in the areas of Physics, Information Technology, and more recently, Cybersecurity, since 1993. He was one of the co-creators of the original Computer Repair Technology program at SUNY CCC, which is now called Information Technology: Computers and Networking, and also one of the co-creators of the Cybersecurity Program.
Joe has been assisting in the study skills room at Notre Dame High School for the past 8 years, and has been involved in local Maker Faires, demonstrating the many uses of Raspberry Pi computers and his strange fascination with creating Arduino powered binary clocks.
Joe has been working with computers since the late '70s when he was a youngster and taught himself assembly and soldering skills so he could build an Altair 8800 (which, of course, he wishes he still owned). Joe also has a great love for retro video gaming consoles. His on campus lab contains a small portion of his collection, such as a Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and an Atari 2600!
Joe's favorite class to teach is currently a tie between Elementary Physics and Introduction to Information Security. Physics is fun because it describes the world in which we live. Information Security is fun because we get to hack into things (legally, of course). Who doesn’t love that?
Joe currently serves as the department chair for Technology, Engineering, and Computing.
Elementary Physics, Systems Configuration and Maintenance, Information Technology Practicum, Introduction to Networks, Fundamentals of Information Security
Participated in numerous national conferences in the Information Technology field, giving seminars on topics such as virus and spyware detection and protection, computer security, and networking.

Joe has participated in numerous conferences in the Information Technology field, giving seminars on topics such as virus and spyware detection and protection, computer security, and networking. He also owned and operated a successful Information Technology consulting business for 5 years. Recently, he became a Cisco Certified Instructor for the Cisco Academy Introduction to Networks course.
Currently, Professor DeLeone teaches numerous courses at CCC in areas such as Physics, Operating Systems, System Configuration, and Cisco Networking. He is also oversees the Information Technology Practicum, a course where students work as interns for 100 hours in local businesses and school districts. He is also an Investigator for a National Science Foundation Grant on Information Security, partnering with Rochester Institute of Technology.
Joe's hobbies and interests include hanging out with his two sons (who regularly pwn him on the XBOX) and his wife, fishing at the lake, and working on all things technology related. He spends a lot of time volunteering at Notre Dame High School where he tutors in the study skills room and assists the band directors.
