Civil Engineering 220D
Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics
Wooyoung Jung is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Arizona. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Architectural Engineering from Yonsei University and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech.
Jung envisions smart building operations addressing different dimensions of individual dynamics such as occupancy, comfort, productivity, and health for better adaptivity, sustainability, and energy efficiency of human-centered building operations. He takes interdisciplinary approaches including intelligent sensing, machine learning and advanced simulation methods.
After his B.S., Jung was involved in several residential and commercial construction projects in South Korea and Malaysia for three years as an architectural engineer at Daewoo E&C. He also contributed to a number of DOE-funded research projects such as Building Energy Codes Program, Healthy Buildings, and the ARPA-E SENSOR project as a researcher at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for two years.
