Dr. Andy George is an Associate Professor of Manufacturing Engineering. Professor George holds a Ph.D. in Composites Process Engineering from University of Stuttgart's Institute for Aircraft Design, which he completed within a European research network fellowship. Previously he received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering (with a focus on biomaterials) and an M.S. in Manufacturing Engineering (focusing on non-destructive measurement of weathering damage in plastics), both at Brigham Young University. He has worked for the Swedish Institute of Composites (Swerea SICOMP), where he consulted the European aerospace industry on composites processing. Professor George currently teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on composites and plastics materials and processing. His research deals with modeling and simulation of resin infusion composites processing, studying flow and other phenomena through porous media, permeability measurement, fabric compressibility, thermosetting resin cure kinetics, capillary flow, void formation and movement, and void mechanical effects. Professor George currently serves as the chair of the SAMPE Utah chapter.
