CEAS, Women in Engineering

Welcome Dr. Fajardo!!!

I just found out the other day that our College of Engineering and Applied Sciences has hired Dr. Claudia M. Fajardo as a new faculty member in the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering. She comes to us from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan, where she just finished her PhD. She also got her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from WMU! She was named a recipient of the 2005 Yanmar/SAE Scholarship, and in addition, also received a Best Paper award from The Combustion Institute. Her research involves turbulence and internal combustion engines. The title of her PhD thesis at the University of Michigan was “Development and Application of a High-speed UV Particle Image Velocimetry Technique for Investigations in Internal Combusion Engines.” One of her publications includes an article in the January 2007 issue of the Proceedings of the Combustion Institute: Flow field assessment in a fired spray-guided spark-ignition direct-injection engine based on UV particle image velocimetry with sub crank angle resolution”, co-authored with Dr. Volker Sick at the University of Michigan.

  1. We wanted to alert you of our blog at Over50Gals.wordpress.com
    We are working on stories about women in engineering in th 70’s.

    I also wanted to alert you of two books:

    Ecocide Files, featuring a woman engineer heroine.
    And Go Home Little Fifinella, a book about the WASP program during world world II. You may find information about these on Amazon. These books deal with the issues of women in typically male dominated fields.

    We have put together a video presentation of these books at http://www.municipalnets.com/books/
