Undergraduate Students

Songyuan (Mark) Cui (B.S., Mechanical Science and Engineering)
Email: cui20@illinois.edu
I am an undergraduate student of class 2022 majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Computer Science. Prior to joining WPM Lab, I had an internship at a ZF Friedrichshafen branch in China with a focus on industrial assembly line design and optimization. Since joining WPML in January 2020, I’ve been working with Ph.D. student Ganesh Patil on the analysis of transient wave propagation. I enjoy watching movies and soccer games in my free time (fan of FC Barcelona).

I am an undergraduate student pursuing a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, with an expected graduation date of 2023. I joined the WPM Lab in January 2021, and I have been working with Ph.D. student Ignacio Arretche to study the composition of 3D printed materials developed with binder jetting technology. In my free time, I enjoy art, horror movies, and playing with my pet guinea pig.

I joined the WPM lab in the Fall of 2020 where I worked with Changgong Kim to create an educational module for Engineering Open House which explained the basic concepts of Ultrasonic Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE). I am currently working on using ultrasonic NDE to evaluate the mechanical properties of binder jet printed parts. Outside of the lab, I am the chassis sub-team lead for the Off-Road Illini and am hoping to graduate in May 2023 with a B.S. in mechanical engineering and a minor in mathematics.
