Syed Murshid, professor of electrical and computer engineering, has written a book on on optical fiber multiplexing. Morgan & Claypool Publishers released Optical Fiber Multiplexing and Emerging Techniques, SDM and OAM in October. This is Murshid’s first book. The inventor of two of the five ways to multiplex data on an optical fiber, Murshid holds ten patents and has written over one hundred publications on these topics.

Albert Bleakley, associate professor and Civil Engineering, Construction Management and Engineering Management Program Chair, taught a two-day OSHA 10-hour construction safety class at the Brevard County Jail in October as part of a program initiated by the Brevard County Sherriff’s Office and the Home Builders & Contractors Association of Brevard to assist inmates in qualifying to work in construction after release.

Martin Glicksman, University Professor and the Allen S. Henry Chair in Engineering is serving on the National Research Council’s Laboratory Assessment Board (LAB). The LAB’s panel on NIST Technical Programs helped produce the FY 2018 report An Assessment of Four Divisions of the Physical Measurement Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. As a materials scientist, he was chosen to serve a key role in the LAB’s review of NIST Gaithersburg, which involved that site’s Materials Measurements Laboratory. As a member of the National Academy of Engineering, Glicksman was initially selected to serve on the LAB in 2016 for the FY 2017 report, An Assessment of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Material Measurement Laboratory. Glicksman was in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 5-6 attending a follow-up LAB panel meeting.
