Vladimir Boginski, UCF Industrial Engineering and Management Systems Associate Professor, was recently selected by the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to participate in the 2018 Japan-America Frontiers of Engineering (JAFOE) symposium organized in cooperation with the Engineering Academy of Japan in Tsukuba, Japan on June 18-20, 2018. Sixty of the most promising early career engineers from Japan and the United States met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas: The Water Treatment Revolution, Bionics and Prosthetics, Smart Structures and Materials, and Advanced AI. The event was intended to facilitate international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourage the creation of a transpacific network of world-class engineers. Dr. Boginski showcased his research on Network Science and Engineering, which has potential impacts on diverse areas of engineering technology.
