Yuebin Guo Named Henry Rutgers Professor

Rutgers University and the School of Engineering are Proud to Announce the Appointment of Dr. Yuebin Guo, Henry Rutgers Professor in Advanced Manufacturing

Yuebin Guo, a pioneer in manufacturing informatics, joins Rutgers School of Engineering as the Henry Rutgers Professor of Advanced Manufacturing in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace. Guo is internationally recognized for his seminal research contributions in the areas of smart manufacturing and sustainable production, with particular emphasis in the development, understanding, and control of process−surface integrity−functionality relationships for various manufacturing processes.

In coming to Rutgers, Guo is looking to establish Rutgers as a global leader in advanced manufacturing, working in collaboration with industry partners, government agencies, and university researchers in areas such as additive manufacturing, micro/nano-manufacturing, smart manufacturing, and flexible co-bot manufacturing.

“I also hope to integrate manufacturing with data science to meet the coming challenges in the digital manufacturing era,” he says.

According to Rutgers School of Engineering dean Thomas N. Farris, building a robust and influential advanced manufacturing program at Rutgers, capitalizes on New Jersey’s strong manufacturing history while increasing synergistic economic opportunities through focused research, industry partnerships, and an ecosystem of collaboration.

“Dr. Guo’s distinction as a Henry Rutgers Professor coupled with his pioneering leadership in the field brings exciting opportunities for Rutgers to develop new research that can lead to innovation and business development throughout the state,” Farris says.

Guo most recently served as assistant director for research partnerships with the Advanced Manufacturing National Program Office (AMNPO), established by Congress. Prior to joining AMNPO, he was a mechanical engineering professor at the University of Alabama where he also served as the funding director of the Consortium for Surface Integrity and Functionality.

Guo is the author of over 300 peer reviewed technical publications and a recipient of many awards, including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Federal Government Swanson Fellow, Humboldt Research Award for Experienced Scientists, Tau Beta Pi Outstanding Faculty Award, National Science Foundation CAREER Award, Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award, and Society of Automobile Engineers Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award. He is an elected fellow in the ASME, SME, Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and International Society for Nanomanufacturing. He is an elected member of the International Academy for Production Engineering and the National Academy of Inventors.

Guo received his doctoral and master’s degrees in advanced manufacturing from Purdue University and University of California at Berkeley, respectively.
