Biography

Dr. Qing Wang is an Associate Professor and the International Coordinator within the Department of Engineering at Durham University. Her PhD programme was sponsored by BAE Systems and her doctoral research was carried out to identify and develop Artificial Neural Network techniques for use within the cost model development process. Her ANN techniques have since been successfully applied to the development of consultancy work to establish thermoforming cost models within the Composite Wing Programme at BAE Systems.

Dr Wang has over fifteen years’ experience in research, industrial and project management and has secured funding from the Nuffield Foundation, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, BP, IMechE, Royal Academy of Engineering, Royal Society, EPSRC and EU for her research. Her research interests focus on product life cycle engineering including cost engineering, virtual manufacturing/remanufacturing systems involved in operations research, large scale metrology and enterprise supply networks design. Since 2010, she has extended her research into product service systems in relation to developing wind turbine condition monitoring techniques. Dr Wang has published two co-authored books and more than 80 papers in refereed journals and international conferences.

Dr Wang is on the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Optimisation and Control: Theory and Applications and International Journal of Research in Computer Science. She is also a peer-reviewer for a number of international journals including IJPR, IJAMT, IJPE, IJCIM and IMechE Part B. She has served as an international scientific committee member for several international conferences including ICMR and ICMEEM. She was a Session Chair for the ASME 16th and 17th Design for Manufacturing and the Life Cycle Conferences (DFMLC) in 2011 and 2012, the Program Chair for the ASME DFMLC Conference in 2016 and is the Conference Chair for the ASME DFMLC Conference in 2017. She is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a senior member of IEEE(SMIEEE), a member of IMechE(MIMechE), a member of ASME(MASME), a member of EC (UK Engineering Council), a Mid-Career Fellow of Durham Energy Institute and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Student recruitment

Dr. Wang is keen to work with talented students with an education background in maths, electronics, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering on MSc/PhD projects. These projects are likely related to structural health monitoring using nondestructive testing and evaluation; energy storage and transfer ( battery) developing wind turbine condition monitoring techniques; establishing remanufacturing systems for new materials; laser metrology for large scale component measurement; and supply chain optimisation and integration. If you are interested in any of these projects and would like to apply for a position at Durham, please email Dr. Wang with a full resume for further discussion.
