Darek Ceglarek

Professor, Digital Laboratory, Warwick Manufacturing Group

University of Warwick, UK

Professor Darek Ceglarek joined WMG from the USA to strengthen its research and teaching directions at home and abroad.

He sees WMG’s unique infrastructure and multidisciplinary expertise encompassing cutting edge industry-wide research problems, life-long teaching and fundamental research as a model for other institutions to adopt.

Professor Ceglarek, an expert in digital simulation, is internationally known faculty recently recruited to Warwick’s new digital laboratory.

He has been wooed from the highly-respected University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he spent six years since 2000, and rose from the ranks of Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering to Associate Professor and Professor in 2003 and 2005, respectively.

Throughout his academic career he has maintained close links with industry – while undertaking his PhD in mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, he was never far from some of the world’s major automotive companies and their suppliers.

Professor Ceglarek specializes in addressing the gamut of life-cycle of new products and production systems, starting from design to manufacturing and service. He brings together research on manufacturing system CAD/CAM models, statistical methods for design, control, diagnostics and self-healing of multistage manufacturing processes; along with analysis of warranty and service data applicable to lean healthcare.
