Pacific Trinetics Corporation continues its cooperation with Professor Farzad Ahmadkhanlou and Professor Vince McDonell — faculty advisers for the Engineering Design in Industry (EDI) Program — in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of California, Irvine (UCI.)
The program is designed to bring together faculty, students, and advisers from particular fields to explore problems, improve existing technology and experiment with new ideas within the industrial setting. The team is currently working on upgrading PTC’s via fill technology. “We are proud of our involvement with UCI,” said Foad Ghalili, PTC’s President. “This is a win win situation for everyone.” Indeed, especially so for the students who get hands on experience in solving real life industrial problems through the program.
