Every year SIMULIA organizes annual user meetings at different major cities around the world including Houston, the energy capital of the world. This long-standing tradition within the SIMULIA community provides an invaluable platform for industry and academia to join together and learn how the latest simulation technology and methods can accelerate and improve product development . This is an opportunity for ex-colleagues of Dr. Baxevanis and his new group to come together and spend the whole day where they share their current work experiences and help each other. This year, Austin Cox who is the Solution Consultant at Dassault Systemes and currently working as the representative of Dassault Systemes at Boeing with Dr. Alexandros Solomou who is currently working as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Texas A&M has joined the meeting. Our group had spent a wonderful whole day with them together while sharing their works and connecting with each other.
Rutvik defended successfully his undergraduate thesis on 27th November and left for the graduate school at Purdue! Rutvik got his admission in Mechanical Engineering of Purdue University and he is going to start his Master’s with a thesis under Dr. Fu Zhao from Spring 2019. We wish him the best from our group for his upcoming days at Purdue!
ME undergraduate, Rutvik Mehta, was among the 20 applicants who was awarded the Provost’s Undergraduate Research Scholarship (PURS) due to his high interest in the area of Shape Memory Alloys and by displaying his enthusiasm and determination. PURS is awarded to rising sophomores and seniors who are interested in conducting cutting edge research with a UH faculty member. Congratulations, Rutvik!
