Dr. Yingguang Wang, Associate Professor of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in marine engineering.

Backed by more than three decades of professional expertise in the fields of ocean, civil and mechanical engineering, Dr. Wang has flourished in his role as associate professor of naval architecture and ocean engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China since 2012, having also served the institution as research engineer beginning in 2003. With this sentiment, his textbook, “Marine Structural Analysis and Design,” is honored as a “China’s 12th Five-Year Plan national key book.” Earlier in his career, Dr. Wang was a naval architect at Yantai Shipyard from 1989 to 1997, the director of the hull section of design and development at Friede Goldman Halter-Yantai Raffles Shipyard from 1997 to 2000 and a hull design engineer at Kvaerner Philadelphia Shipyard Inc. from 2002 to 2003. Holding nine patents in his field, he has played significant roles in successfully designing and building 34 ships. Dr. Wang’s recent research efforts have centered on the development of a novel environmental contour method for predicting the long-term extreme structural responses of offshore wind turbines.

Dr. Wang has been met with vast acclaim and numerous accolades for his efforts in marine dynamics and hydrodynamics, ships and ocean energy systems design, system identification of marine dynamical systems and more. Notably, he received the First Class Science and Technology Advancement Award for “Design Principles Study and Ship Type Practical Development of Large Cutter Suction Dredging Ships” from the Ministry of Education, as well as the Science and Technology Award of China Machinery Industry for “Independent Research, Development and Commercialization of Large Marine Cutter Suction Dredging Equipment” from the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society, both in 2018. Among other feats, he has published a series of international journal papers and is an associate editor of the Journal of Ship Production and Design of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. Dr. Wang received a Bachelor of Science in 1989 and a Doctor of Philosophy in 2008, both in naval architecture and ocean engineering, from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In between, he attained a Master of Science in industrial engineering from the University of Washington in 2001.
