Xingwu Wang, Professor of Electrical Engineering at Alfred University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of engineering education.

Dr. Wang started his higher education at the Harbin Naval Engineering Institute in China, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering in 1978. Following his graduation, he started working as a teacher at Hangzhou Naval School, and continued his studies at Hangzhou University, earning a Master of Science in physics in 1981. Until 1984, Dr. Wang worked as a teacher at the university. In 1982, he came to the United States to complete his education at the University at Buffalo, where he worked as a research assistant. In 1987, he earned a PhD in physics and remained at the university as a research associate until 1988.

Upon his departure from the University at Buffalo, Dr. Wang became an assistant professor of electrical engineering at Alfred University, rising to the rank of associate professor in 1993. In 1997, he became a full professor of electrical engineering, where he continues to work to this day. His father, Jinguang Wang, taught physics at Hangzhou University in China for more than 55 years, from 1952 until he passed away in 2008, and Dr. Wang has followed in his footsteps, working as an educator for more than 30 years.

Dr. Wang worked as an electrician before college, and during his education, he gravitated towards the less hands-on aspects of the field. He applied physics principles to thin film coatings, and worked in super fluid thin film during his PhD study—when he came to the United States, he worked on super conductor thin film. Dr. Wang holds 45 U.S. patents in his field, over ninety percent of which are in thin film coating.

Throughout his career, Dr. Wang has been a prolific physics and electrical engineering writer. He has authored over 100 published papers, which have appeared in both the Physical Review Journal and Applied Physics Letters. He is a member of the American Physical Society, and in the future, he plans to pursue more innovations in the field of education. Dr. Wang advises aspiring physicists, electrical engineers, and educators to delve into the foundational principles of the sciences in order to better understand the entirety of the disciplines.
