CECS Virtual Faculty Research Talks

Friday, September 10, 2021 noon to 1 p.m.

The UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science's Zoom-cast series is live-streamed every Friday, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., offering talks by CECS faculty and a live-chat Q&A. 

Targeted to faculty, scientists and potential industry and government partners, all are invited to Zoom-in and hear presentations by UCF’s engineering and computer science faculty who explain their cutting-edge, pioneering research endeavors.

These talks provide an opportunity to get to know — and collaborate with — our faculty who are advancing innovations in all areas of engineering and computer science, including smart city technology, aerospace, energy, modeling and simulation, medicine, advanced materials, cyber security, and more. Each faculty presenter will narrate as they share illustrative slides.

Moderated by Subith Vasu, Ph.D., UCF Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, viewers can submit questions in real-time and express interest in collaborating. 

The September 10, 2021 presenter lineup:

  • Rainer Kurz, Solar Turbines Incorporated: "Collaboration Between Academia and Industry to Advance Industrial Gas Turbines"
  • Ali Gordon, Ph.D., Dept. of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering: "A Framework for Microstructurally-Informed Life Prediction Modeling for Combined Extreme Environments"

See more details in the September 10 research talk flyer.
