3 Engineering Students Win Image of Research Awards
Congratulations to our Image of Research winners! The Image of Research exhibition is the annual interdisciplinary exhibit competition organized by the Graduate College and University Library to showcase the breadth and diversity of research at UIC.  "Intelligent Welding" by Alexandra Del Carmen Basantes Defaz, Materials Engineering; 2nd Place"Intelligent Welding" I am not your stereotypical welder. I am an M.S. student in the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering conducting research in UIC’s Welding Laboratory under the direction of Professors Ernesto Indacochea and Didem Ozevin. I am researching traditional welding techniques and autonomous welding in “real-time” to avoid defects. It addresses weld quality assurance by developing a combined real-time diagnosis, decision, and control system based on multi-sensor fusion and machine learning methodology. The…

Celebrating the Life of Distinguished Professor Emeritus Faydor Litvin
In Memoriam Faydor L. Litvin January 21, 1914 – April 26, 2017 On April 26, 2017, the scientific community of mechanical engineers worldwide lost a renowned scientist, a great educator, and a remarkable person who dedicated his life to the development of the modern theory of gearing and made enormous contributions to the development of the theory of mechanisms.Professor Litvin had been recognized as a renowned authority in kinematics and the theory of gearing. A whole epoch in the theory of gearing is concerned with the name of Professor Litvin. He is the author of one of the most fundamental and cited works in the field—a well-known monograph, The Theory of Gearing, which underwent six editions.In a way, he really lived two lives—the first in Russia,…
