About Kuang-Hua Chang

Dr. Kuang-Hua Chang is a Williams Presidential Professor for the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (AME) at the University of Oklahoma (OU), Norman, OK. He received his diploma in Mechanical Engineering from National Taipei Institute of Technology, Taiwan, in 1980; an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Iowa in 1987 and 1990, respectively. Since then, he joined the Center for Computer-Aided Design (CCAD) at Iowa as Research Scientist and CAE Technical Area Manager. In 1997, he joined OU. His areas of interest include Virtual Prototyping, CAD, Fatigue and Reliability Analysis; Tools and Information Integration for Concurrent Design and Manufacturing; Solid Freeform Fabrication, as well as bioengineering applications. His research has been published in three books and more than 130 articles in international journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Chang has also received numerous awards in both teaching and research in the past few years. He is a recipient of the SAE Ralph R. Teetor Award (2006), Best Paper Award of iCEER-2005 iNEER Conference for Engineering Education and Research, Outstanding Asian American Award (2003), and Public Employee Award of OKC Mayor's Committee Award on Disability Concerns (2002). In addition, he received awards from OU, including: Alumni Teaching Awards (spring and fall 2007, fall 2008, spring 2009), Regents' Award on Superior Research and Creative Activities (2004), BP AMOCO Good Teaching Award (2002), and Junior Faculty Award (1999). He was named Williams Presidential Professor in 2005 for meeting the highest standards of excellence in scholarship and teaching. Dr. Chang has worked with aerospace and automotive industry, and created Reverse Engineering testbed to support MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul). He has also served as technical consultants to US industry and foreign companies, such as LG-Electronics, and Seagate Technology.
