Abdel-Hamid Ismail Mourad

I received my B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering (1981) and M.Sc. degree (1989) in Mechanical Engineering (stress analysis area) from Helwan University, Cairo, Egypt. In 1991, I got a scholarship from the INDO/ARE Cultural Exchange Program under which I earned my Ph.D. degree in the Mechanical Engineering (Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics area) from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB), Mumbai, India, in 1995. After awarding the PhD degree, I have started working as a full-time lecturer (1995) at the Mechanical Design Department, Helwan University. In September 2000, I joined the UAEU as assistant professor in 2005, I was promoted to the rank of associate professor and in Spring 2014 I have promoted to full Professor at UAEU.

Throughout my career, I have taught a wide spectrum of courses at undergraduate (department, college, ERU and university) and graduate (in 3 graduate programs) levels. Varieties of teaching aids/methods are used in delivering the material of each course. I have supervised/co-supervised 20 PhD and more than 40 Master students from different departments/colleges. I am active researcher in several attractive topics of engineering applications. My research has resulted in more than 200 referred and peer reviewed international journals and conferences. I have recognized as World’s Top 2% scientist by Stanford University. Received UAE University Award for Excellence in Scholarship, college excellence award in scholarship in academic year 2020-2021. I have also awarded excellence allowance for last 4 years. I am Editor of many international journals and Editor in chief of Emirates Journal for Engineering Research (EJER). With my students, I have won many best paper awards and other competitions.
