List of Seminars and Consultings

Partial list of seminars and combined seminar/consulting activities


Seminars are prepared for and delivered to professional design engineers, practitioners, R&D technical managers, and researchers. Seminars are from three to five days in a row and involve both presentations and group discussion sessions. Seminars come with up-to-date, targeted, tailored slides and hand-picked articles. The presentation style is to enhance understanding and build physical intuition on key issues and provide design guidelines based on experience. In many cases, the seminars were followed by, or packaged with, consulting opportunities on pressing R&D needs of key players in variety of industries. For this and similar professional activities, Dr. Chehroudi was honored with the Forest R. McFarland Award in recognition of the outstanding services and leadership in contributions to Continuing Professional Development, Society of Automotive Engineers (2002).
