William Aquite, Ph.D.

William Aquite received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the National University of Colombia and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research work included characterization and simulation of extrusion flow and additive manufacturing techniques. During his graduate studies, he also served as Chief Engineer for the Polymer Engineering Center, President of the student chapter for the Society of Plastics Engineers, and as Ambassador for the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) where he gained experience in patenting and licensing. His teaching experience includes assisting work for courses in composites (Introduction to Composites Processing) and polymer processing (Manufacturing Processes, Engineering Design with Polymers and Modeling and Simulation in Polymer Processing). Prior to joining The Madison Group, William lectured for core courses in mechanical engineering including Manufacturing Processes and Dynamic Systems. His training in polymer processing also includes field work at one of Dow Chemical's polystyrene plants and micro-injection molding research at the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH University. He holds an appointment at the Grainger Institute for Engineering at University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he manages the facilities planning and leads collaborative efforts in the use of 3D printing for teaching and learning.
