College of Engineering Distinguished Lecture: Provost's Seminar Series
"Aerospace Prizes Inspire the Five I’s of Success," Dr. Darryll J. Pines, Nariman Farvardin Professor of Engineering and dean of the A. James Clark School of Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park.
This presentation details three aerospace prizes that not only advanced technology in the aerospace field, but also spurred significant job growth and economic development in the United States. More importantly, these prizes often attracted a new generation of students and technology innovators to the field with the hope of becoming the first to win a prize, while making a significant contribution to the aerospace field and to society.
Pines' current research focuses on structural dynamics, including structural health monitoring and prognosis, smart sensors, and adaptive, morphing and biologically-inspired structures as well as the guidance, navigation, and control of aerospace vehicles. Pines received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
