After an 18 year career in the automotive industry, Dr. De Clerck joined the Michigan Tech Department of Mechanical Engineering - Engineering Mechanics in August 2009. His areas of expertise include noise and vibration, structural dynamics, design, modal analysis, model validation, inverse methods applied to design, and advanced measurement techniques.
Dr. Endres received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992. He has served on the faculty at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor for 7 years and at Michigan Technological University since 2001, where he is currently an Associate Professor and the Director of the ME Senior Capstone Design Program. In 1996 he began envisioning a technology company which he ultimately founded as Endres Machining Innovations, LLC (EMI) in 2004 to develop and commercialize innovative processes and tooling technologies. EMI’s industry-leading R&D efforts aim to provide substantial efficiency improvements. EMI’s focus is the machining of difficult-to-machine materials, such as titanium, nickel alloys, stainless steels, compacted-graphite iron (CGI), hardened steel, and abrasive composites, and applications like energy efficient chipping/chopping of cellulosic biomass. In 2013 a manufacturing company was formed for production of their first product line leaving EMI to focus on technology development and commercialization partnerships.
Dr. van Susante received a M.Sc. in Civil Engineering in 2001 from Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands followed by a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Engineering Systems from the Colorado School of Mines in 2004 and 2011 respectively. He has been teaching undergraduate engineering courses including mechanics of materials and senior capstone design since 2005. He is currently a lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering department at Michigan Technological University where he is involved with developing the new undergraduate curriculum and course coordinator for the first new ME-Practice course.
