Professor Warren J. Jasper, program director in textile engineering, has been awarded a Fulbright Specialist Grant in Engineering Education at the Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art in Israel.
In Israel, Jasper will give lectures on Six Sigma Quality and on communicating color between different disciplines. Although color is a perceived experience and not measurable in scientific units, it is of great importance in a variety of human endeavors ranging from art to physics. Jasper’s talk will focus on the links between describing color and color differences in art, science and engineering.
Six Sigma Quality and Lean Six Sigma are methodologies that reduce defects and waste in manufacturing while optimizing resources.
In addition to these lectures, Jasper will help set up a semester abroad program between Shenkar and NC State, which does not have a semester study abroad program in the Middle East.
