Goldin (second from right) visited the Integrated Media Systems Center on Tuesday, Feb. 18, for a presentation and discussion about “smart” interactive tools for advanced design capabilities and problem-solving. This integrated approach is not just about forwarding the space program, Goldin told the IMSC in his briefing. “I want to give America design tools,” he said, stressing that the automotive industry particularly needs such advanced technology. Pictured with Goldin are (far left) IMSC director Chrysostomas “Max” Nikias, IMSC associate director Armand Tanguay Jr., and Leonard Silverman, dean of the School of Engineering.
