Fuchs, an expert on fatique in metals, taught mechanical engineering at Stanford University from 1964 to 1973, when he became
an Emeritus Professor. He was educated in France and Germany, earning his Ph.D. in 1932 from the Technical University in Karlsruhe,
Germany. Before coming to Stanford, he was an engineer with General Motors (1933-45) and president of Metal Improvement Company
