Virtual Workshop on COVID-19

Join us for a day of stimulating and thought-provoking workshop experience on the COVID-19 challenges in research and education.

Invited speakers and panelists include the keynote speaker, former Surgeon General of the Navy, Vice Admiral C. Forrest Faison, who led the U.S. Navy at the forefront of battling the last six world-wide pandemics and is currently the executive vice-president of research at Cleveland State University, a medical profession from the Mayo Clinic, and outstanding scientists and engineers from George Tech, Rutgers, Michigan State University and industry, who are engaging in research and development combatting COVID-19 pandemic.

Together they will interact with the participants to explore the solutions thermal and fluids engineering and the broader research community can contribute to in alleviating the impact from COVID-19.

A special panel consisting of a university president, provost and engineering dean will address the critical issues of short-term and long-term impact of COVID-19 on engineering education.
