Josh Goldschmid is Boeing’s 3rd SERC Doctoral Fellow, studying at Missouri University of Science and Technology (2014). Sponsored by Kevin Leath, Director of Affordability and Boeing Product Development System (BPDS), Mr. Goldschmid’s research will create a theoretical framework to understand the behavior of large scale complex engineering programs and using biological system approaches (i.e. Genetic programming) to measure what information is most valuable when shared between scales and across disciplines in a system. In June 2015, he was selected to become a Technical Liaison representing the Boeing Company to help form STEM-related strategic alliances with the United States Business Leadership Network (USBLN) in leveraging disability inclusion in the workplace, supply chain, and marketplace. In September of 2015, Mr. Goldschmid was honored with the Steven M. Atkins Ability and Achievement in Science, Engineering, and Technology (AASET) Award during the SAE International AeroTech Engineering Congress.
Mr. Goldschmid earned his Bachelor’s degree in Biological Systems Engineering from the University of California, Davis; and his Master’s degree in Engineering Management from Drexel University. He began working at Boeing in 2005 as a Technical Specialist for 787 wingbox design & testing processing test data for analysis and publication. In the following years he worked on many airplane projects making significant contributions in design, certification, and program management for Boeing Commercial airplanes including the 737, 747, 767, 777, and 787.
