Jin Wang, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, was recently interviewed by EE Web as the "featured engineer."

In the profile, Wang discusses his early days as an engineer, his work on the traction drive system of the Ford Fusion Hybrid, the trickiest bug he ever fixed, his current research and the challenges he sees for the industry.

Wang leads the department’s efforts to reinvigorate electrical power engineering education by developing an interdisciplinary curriculum, called I-SMART: Integrated Curriculum for Smart Power Engineering, to train the next generation of power engineers on smart grid technologies. The department was awarded $2.5 million in Recovery Act Funds from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop the curriculum. He also supervises Ohio State's High Voltage and Power Electronics Laboratory and received the 2011 IEEE Power Electronics Society's Richard M.
