Crain's Q&A with WSU Bioengineering Center Director King Yang

February 2, 2014


King Yang is director of the Wayne State University Bioengineering Center, which marks its 75-year anniversary this summer and conducts auto collision research using human cadavers and 3-D digital simulations, as well as military and sports injury research. He spoke in a Q&A with Crain's reporter Chad Halcom about educational resources for professionals. Among the questions asked was: Do many major employers in Southeast Michigan send their executives to Wayne State to get training through the center? "Many industries send their engineers here for training, or research, that helps them build toward a promotion or new job duties. Right now, taking a snapshot, we have one person here from General Motors Co., two from Ford Motor Co., one from Toyota North America and four from TARDEC (the Tank-Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center in Warren)."
