Dr. Yonggang Huang, (the Walter P. Murphy Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, at Northwestern University), was the invited speaker for the CE-CISMMS co-sponsored Graduate Seminar on March 9th. The title of his talk was, ‘Mechanistics-Guided, Deterministic 3D Assembly’. He gave a beautiful presentation illustrating the complex 3-D structures in nature and how this is attainable in human-made devices with advanced materials, such as device-grade silicon. During his visit, he met with several faculty members from the different departments of engineering at the Whiting School of Engineering (WSE). He concluded his visit by meeting members of the CMRL at the third floor of Latrobe Hall.
