From July 13th to 17th, Yiming Deng, director of Non-destructive Evaluation(NDE) Laboratory at Michigan State University, was invited to give lectures to doctoral students, master’s students as well as senior undergraduates in Engineering College.
Yiming Deng mainly focused on his research fields and introduced the basic principles, methods and applications of NDE, including the introduction of common NDE systems; the characteristics analysis of NDE systems; the principle and method of signal acquisition; the working principle of sensors, associated circuits and its application; signal conditioning and conversion; visual recording technology and instruments.
Applying different classroom techniques such as lecture, discussion and case study etc., Yiming Deng’s class was very successful and well-received, yielded a lot of dynamic interaction and heated talks. The lectures helped to widen students’ horizon and inspire the students' interest in research.
Invited by Lu Wei, the head of the Department of Electrical Engineering, and sponsored by NJAU-MSU International Cooperation Project, Yiming Deng was expected to stay on the campus for one month. During his stay, Yiming Deng attended the “International Forum on Agricultural Electrification and Automation Discipline Development in the era of New Engineering” organized by the Department of Electrical Engineering and gave a keynote speech. He conducted a 22-hour course on NDE for doctoral students, master’s students as well as senior undergraduates. Moreover, he participated actively in the construction of electrical engineering laboratory, guided graduates’ experiments, and were engaged in the discussion of undertaking relevant experimental projects.
Yiming Deng, from Wuxi Jiangsu Province,is the director of Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) Laboratoryat Michigan State University, which with more than 20 PHD sand master’s student is one of the top3 NDE centersin USA. He’s conducted a number of governmental research projects funded by National Science Foundation(NSF), US Department of Energy(DOE)，US Department of Defense(DOD)，US Department of Transportation(DOT)etc.. He is also an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Reliability (IEEE TREL), Materials Evaluation (ME). He serves as a reviewer for NSF, US DOE, US DOT and US DOD. Moreover, he is a Senior Member of IEEE, member of Committee on Data Sharing of DOT and state-level distinguished expert. Over 120 of his papers have been published on international scientific journals and conferences.
