Reno (Tao) Wang (SE, PhD’13) was selected as one of the New Faces of Engineering, an annual award by DiscoverE (formerly the National Engineers Week Foundation) recognizing outstanding engineers age 30 or under who have contributed to projects that significantly impact society. 

A senior operations research developer for Sabre Airline Solutions, Wang, 30, develops products for crew management systems serving more than 20 airlines. His work focuses on adding novel features to these products and improving the efficiency of scheduling algorithms. 

Wang’s achievements as a PhD student at Boston University with his adviser, Professor Christos Cassandras (ECE, SE), played a critical role in his nomination. In addition to his PhD from BU, Wang holds an MS in ECE from Georgia Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Engineering in Information Engineering from Shanghai Jiaotong University (China).

Members of the New Faces of Engineering Class of 2014 appear on the DiscoverE website and in USA Today during Engineers Week, February 16-22. In addition to receiving this recognition, New Faces serve as “engineering ambassadors” at outreach or community-building events—thus advancing the DiscoverE mission to sustain and grow a dynamic engineering profession by promoting engineering education and careers.
