Read About...
Prof. Fischer received her B.Sc. (1985) in Computer Science and her M.Sc. (1987) and Ph.D. (1992) in Mechanical Engineering from the Technion. From 1992 to 1994, she was a postdoctoral associate in the Injection Molding Program, Dep. of Mechanical Eng., Cornell University, USA. She has been a member of the academic faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering since 1994.
Prof. Fischer’s main research interests include geometric modeling for CAD/CAM, physical-based systems, reverse engineering and rapid prototyping. One of the main engineering challenges today has been to develop a new area, Engineering Oriented Geometry (EOG), comprising new and extended geometric modeling methods that are directly related to the common inherent engineering attributes of design, manufacturing and analysis. In effect, EOG can be viewed as an extension of geometric modeling for engineering design (CAD). Its applications, however, are much broader than those of geometric modeling, and even more importantly, its view of the topic is holistic. Within the broad field of EOG, Prof. Fischer has focused on two main areas: I) shape reconstruction of scanned data, and II) geometric modeling for analysis.

Prof. Shpitalni received his B.Sc. in 1972, his M.Sc. in 1975 and his D.Sc. in 1980 from the Technion. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion in 1983 and in 1983 founded the Laboratory for CAD and Lifecycle Engineering (formerly, Laboratory for Computer Graphics and CAD), which he continues to proudly lead today. Prof. Shpitalni is the holder of the Georg Schlesinger Chair of Manufacturing Systems and also the head of the Minerva Schlesinger Laboratory for Automated Assembly. Prof. Shpitalni’s research interests are primarily in the fields of computer CAD/CAM and product development and the application of geometrical modeling to manufacturing and assembly. Recently he has begun concentrating his efforts on knowledge management related to the entire product lifecycle.
