Hu elected Fellow of CIRP


HuProfessor Jack Hu has been elected a Fellow of CIRP, the International Academy for Production Engineering, at the recent General Assembly in Hong Kong.

CIRP was founded in 1951 with the aim to address issues related to modern production science and technology. Because of the limited number of CIRP Fellows — around only 180 Fellows and Honorary Fellows — the election of a Fellow is a lengthy, rigorous process ensuring the highest possible academic standards.

In addition to being a professor of Mechanical Engineering and of Industrial & Operations Engineering, Hu also serves as the University Co-Director of General Motors Collaborative Research Laboratory on Advanced Vehicle Manufacturing. His research interests include configuration design, performance analysis, and mass customization of manufacturing systems; assembly system design, variation propagation analysis, joint design, and joining/welding methods; sheet metal stamping and hydroforming; and engineering statistics.
