Engineering Presents a Model-Based Design Workshop, Nov. 10


Hofstra University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Center for Innovation present a workshop on Model-Based Design on Tuesday, November 10, 4:30-5:45 p.m. This presentation and panel discussion will take place at Adams Hall, room 208, South Campus.

Model-Based Design (MBD) is considered a 21-century answer to the challenges of adding electronics, control, and embedded software to formerly mechanical designs. MBD allows engineers to better navigate the interactions among a product’s mechanical, electronic and embedded software systems. This approach of simulating and refining digital models while adhering to design constraints replaces the process of building and testing prototypes.

The workshop is free and open to the public. Guest speakers are experts in MBD and include Dr. Aderiano da Silva, Sr., commercial project engineer, Rockwell Automation; Dr. James Fairweather, vice president of architecture, technology and experience, Pitney Bowes; Dr. Abu Islam, manager, Advanced Technology Group, Xerox; and Dr. Fred Stolfi, former research scientist at Phillips and Xerox and a mechatronics professor at Columbia University.

For more information on the workshop contact Dr. Kevin Craig, Hofstra SEAS professor and director of the Center for Innovation, at or 518-858-3771.
