About Me

Dr. Herli Surjanhata has been teaching in the Mechanical Engineering Department, as a Special Lecturer, since 1988.

Herli’s most important contributions have been in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. For all courses, Herli maintains detailed and comprehensive websites and manuals that he updates continuously. They are used by both students and fac­ulty. Herli is also responsible for the creation of the design lab, which serves all mechanical engineering students and faculty. 
 
Herli strives to provide his students with competitive advantages by teaching the latest software and de­veloping relevant courses. He has recently developed the courses ME 441: Computer Simulation and Analysis in Mechanical Engineering, and ME 718: Computer-Aided Engineering.
 
His willingness to help students without reservation makes him one of the most respected and popular professors in the
department. Herli’s ability to maintain a positive relationship and achieve total partici­pation from the class are widely recognized and deeply appreciated by his students.
 
In recognition of his teaching skill, Dr. Herli Surjanhata received the NJIT Teaching Excellence by a Spe­cial Lecturer Award in 2000.
