Feruza Amirkulova


Dr. Amirkulova is the recent recipient of the Guidry Family Faculty Teaching Fellow appointment.  With her new appointment, she plans to engage students’ learning in the areas of conducting sound and vibration measurements, and hands-on experiences using simulations. Dr. Amirkulova plans to develop laboratory instructional materials and implement hands-on activities for ME149: Engineering Acoustics and ME231: Machine Learning and Optimization in Mechanical Engineering courses. The module implemented using the state-of-the-art BK Connect and COMSOL MultiPhysics software will provide world-class education and hands-on experiences enabling students to become leaders in Silicon Valley and beyond.  Exposure and knowing how to use these tools, prepare students to be professional learners, provide better job options and contribute to student success. These tools are widely used in industry worldwide, e.g. Apple, NASA, Toyota, and Airbus use these tools to build their products. The module and tools developed will be shared between faculty in the CoE and Audiology department and local companies such as Jabil and Isuniye.
