Victor Romero Gomez is a visiting instructor from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. He is a mechanical engineer taking part in the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering at PNW.
Although his research also involves Finite Elements Method (FEM) analysis and topology optimization, during the last three years Gomez has focused on vehicle dynamics, especially vehicle braking systems. He is currently finishing his Ph.D. at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid about fBrake, a software to be used in different Vehicle Technical Inspection facilities in Spain.
When I was a kid, I dreamed about being an engineer and it ended up being my passion. That passion has never left me and it motivates me to work harder every day. My aim at PNW is to share that feeling and help engineering students understand difficult concepts. I want them to feel comfortable with those concepts rather than being afraid of them.
Gomez’ teaching focuses on engineering drawing, machine design and calculation, industrial design, dynamics of physical systems, and engineering experimentation.
