Overview

Songlin Ding is a Professor of Manufacturing Engineering in the School of Engineering. He joined RMIT as a Lecturer in 2005 after working in the United States, China, and Singapore for several years, and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2009, Associate Professor in 2015 and Professor in 2020. Currently he is the Program Manager for Master of Engineering (Manufacturing).

Prof Ding’s teaching and research interests are in Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), geometric modelling, and advanced manufacturing processes and technologies including the application and machining of difficult-to-machine materials such as synthetic diamonds and titanium alloys with both CNC and non-traditional methods. He has coordinated and taught over 20 different courses into both onshore and offshore programs at RMIT and published over 100 research papers in the areas of manufacturing engineering, mechanical engineering, and control engineering.

In the last decade, Prof Ding has conducted fundamental and applied research on the next generation machining technologies and processes that underpin the development of local and global manufacturing industries. He created and named the concepts of “adaptive iso-planar”, a machining strategy which is now widely used in commercial CAD/CAM packages. He developed new approaches for high-speed machining of ultra-hard materials for the local industry. His research which was supported by the ARC, CRCs, Victoria Government, and industry partners has generated significant impacts to the industry.
