Associate Professor & Program, Coordinator Control & Instrumentation Engineering TechnologyComputer Science and Engineering Technology


Dr. Weining Feng joined Engineering Technology Department at UHD as an associate professor in Fall 1999. Being the Coordinator of Control and Instrumentation Engineering Technology (CIET) Program, she has been instrumental in the development of the program curriculum and lab learning materials. Dr. Feng has also been actively involved in supervising students in research projects ranging from process control systems, structural instrumentation and control, signal/data acquisition and processing, data communication protocols and standards. Prior to joining UHD, Dr. Feng worked extensively in the area of robot manipulator dynamics and control. She also had experience in system reliability study based on Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA).

Dr. Feng teaches regularly a range of courses in electronics and electric power systems, measurement and instrumentation, automation and control engineering, data communication and networking. Have been working on funded projects involving undergraduates for high-impact research experience.
