Welcome to the home page for the CAE and Design Research Group in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Our goal in the CAE-Design Research Group is to develop computer-based, systems-oriented methods and the supporting infrastructure that facilitate the effective design and realization of engineering products and systems for the global marketplace. Our research focus includes Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), Distributed Design and Manufacturing, and design as a science and discipline in itself.   Applications focus on methods and tools to support engineering analyses, design, manufacture, operations, service, and product retirement. Over the years, we have worked with various companies in the aerospace, automotive, and (consumer) electronics industries.

Our areas of current interest include:

  • Collaborative, Distributed Design and Manufacture

  • Design Decision Support and Optimization

  • Design of Product Families

  • Design of Sustainable Products and Systems for the Global Marketplace

  • Electronic Commerce

  • Engineering Information Technology and Standards

  • Enterprise Design

  • Environmentally Conscious Design and Manufacture

  • Integrated Product and Process Design

  • Process Mechanics Simulation and Miniaturization of Next-Generation

  • Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

  • Materials Design

  • Modeling and Simulation of Materials Processing

  • Rapid Prototyping Methods and Technologies for Product Realization

  • Robust Design

  • Thermo-Mechanical Modeling and Reliable Design of Microelectronic Packages

  • Virtual Prototyping and Simulation
