Professor Naik has recently joined the School of Engineering (SoE) as a Visiting Professor, after serving as an adjunct professor in MSE for almost 4 years.
Naik obtained his Ph.D. from Old Dominion University, and has been teaching graduate engineering courses in the field of composite materials for over a decade, while simultaneously working full-time at a major aerospace company as well. With this teaching and industry background, Professor Naik hopes to impart his vast knowledge and experience in the field of composite materials to the next generation of engineers.
This new position within SOE involves teaching and developing new graduate level courses in the Composites Engineering Certificate program here at UConn. In it, Professor Naik “hopes to advance the education of composites engineers in the local area and grow the CEC program to be one of the finest in the state and beyond.”
