Civil, MechanicalOther Titles: Adjunct Faculty Member
Ye Zhou is an adjunct faculty member at the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia. He is also an alumnus of the University of British Columbia. Dr. Zhou’s Ph.D. research was focused on engineering qualitative analysis and its application on fatigue design of steel structures.
Through an extensive career in the industry, Dr. Zhou has worked on many projects that follow the standards and requirements of conventional engineering, but expand upon them within the areas of design, fabrication and installation. Zhou has focused on research, development, design and management of predominantly technical projects that include precision telescope structures and metal fatigue design for large movable structures. He and a colleague hold a patent for a flying theatre that delivers precise motions that simulate the experience of flying.
Dr. Zhou has collaborated with a variety of national science funding agencies including the Canadian National Research Council, National Science Foundation of the United States and many universities around the world. He has received an Award of Merit in Engineering from the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction and a Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement (Attraction) for his work on Disney California’s Radiator Springs Racers.
Dr. Zhou is a member of Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia and the Associate Director of the Steel Construction (China) Structural Engineering online forum.
