Dr. Harik is an assistant professor of aerospace computer-aided design and manufacturing in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of South Carolina (USC). He is a resident researcher at the McNAIR Center for Aerospace Innovation and Research. His education joins mechanical engineering (MS), automated manufacturing engineering technology (MS) and industrial/mechanical engineering (PhD). His research is in the areas of automated fiber placement, shape recognition, automation of proSet featured imagecess planning and flank milling.
Dr. Harik is published in multiple journals such as CAD (Computer Aided Design), CAD&A (Computer Aided Design and Applications), RPJ (Rapid Prototyping Journal), IJPR (International Journal of Production Research) and JIM (Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing). He is a member of the CAD’xx (Computer Aided Design Conference and Exhibition), PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) and SME scientific communities.
He mainly teaches courses in design and manufacturing. He is the advisor of the SME-USC and SAMPE-USC student clubs. Dr. Harik collaborated with Dassault Aviation and Dassault Systèmes while working on his PhD, which substantially increased his industrial experience: He designed a computer-aided, process-planning software that automates subtractive manufacturing of complex 5-axis structural mechanical parts. Dr. Harik’s research was funded by NASA, Boeing, Fokker Aerostructures, Dassault Systèmes, and Dassault Aviation. His passion lies in discovering next-generation manufacturing solutions that integrate seamlessly within design systems and tools.
Dr. Harik has served as the chair of multiple international conferences (CAD ’10, OARC ’12, ACE ’15, ACE ’16 and PLM ’16). He has been a program co-chair on CAD ’15 and CAD ’16.
