During his career at Bell Labs, he worked on software engineering methodology and tools for the No. 1 ESS, world's first electronic telephone switch. In 1972 he joined the administrative staff of the University of Connecticut Dean of Students where he developed information systems to support automated student registration and class scheduling. He received the PhD degree from the University of Connecticut in 1984 with a dissertation topic about the use of relational databases to store software designs and documentation. In 1978 he joined GTE Laboratories in Waltham, MA, where he worked on requirements modeling for real-time systems, microprocessor embedded electronic controls, a custom VLSI direct execution CPU and content addressable memory, a silicon compiler and CAD tools for digital VLSI, and a CASE tool for business model and database scheme synthesis. In 1989 he joined GTE Government Systems to work on the Air Force Command and Control System (AFC2S) information system modernization. Dr. Glagowski has been an exchange professor from GTE Labs at University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez, and an adjunct professor at University of Massachusetts at Lowell.

In the fall of 1989, Dr. Glagowski joined the EECS visiting faculty of WSU at Pullman, and in 1992 joined the regular faculty at WSU/Spokane. Dr. Glagowski was also director of the Embedded Systems Laboratory   at SIRTI .
