The Manufacturing and Design Laboratory [MADLab] is a research lab at Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at University at Buffalo (UB), SUNY dedicated to establishing new computational methods, user interfaces, and devices to provide innovative solutions to manufacturing and engineering design problem. By combining engineering innovations with methods from machine learning, statistics and optimization, computational geometry, metamodeling and sampling, ontology, and uncertainty quantification, we strive to solve important research problems in manufacturing and engineering design domain. MADLab is housed in 800 square foot modern office space in Bell Hall at UB. The lab director is Assistant Professor Dr. Rahul Rai.

Key words:
manufacturing, design theory and methodology, machine learning, computational geometry, shape synthesis, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), optimization, applied ontology, metamodeling and sampling (Design of Experiments).

Research assistantships are available!!!
DART Lab is looking for exceptional graduate and undergraduate students who have the potential to excel beyond their basic undergraduate education. A successful student in this area must have a solid background in mathematics, mechanical engineering, and computer programming. Good communication skills, previous research experience are a plus.
