The Ambassadors are excited to visit the UC Irvine Campus on Saturday, February 13, 2016.

The Ambassadors are excited to learn about what the UC Irvine campus has to offer.  They have been invited to learn more about STEM degrees and will work with the NSBE chapter to explore and become familiar with new opportunities in these fields.  There will be hands on activities, a time of questioning, lunch and attendance of the UC Irvine basket ball game vs CSUN.
YALA Salutes Professor Gregory Washington who holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University. He is current the Dean of Engineering at UC Irvine.Professor Washington most recently served as interim dean at The Ohio State University College of Engineering, where he provided visionary leadership, oversight and management for one of the nation’s largest and highest ranked engineering programs. Over the years Washington has also served as the college’s Associate Dean for Research and led OSU’s Institute for Energy and the Environment. He has been on the faculty of OSU’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering since 1995, and received a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University.
Professor Washington has been involved in multidomain research for the last 20 years. His core area of interest lies in the area of dynamic systems, with an emphasis on modeling and control of smart material systems and devices. He has been involved in the design and control of mechanically actuated antennas, advanced automotive systems incorporating smart materials, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, and structural position and vibration control with smart materials. He is the author of more than 140 technical publications in journals, edited volumes and conference proceedings.
