Mohamed Amr Serag El Din is a professor of thermo-fluids and CFD mechanical engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The American University in Cairo (AUC). He received his BSc in 1970 and MSc in 1973. both in mechanical engineering from the Department of Mechanical Power at Cairo University.
After graduation, he was appointed as a teaching assistant in the department and served there until he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering (Heat Transfer section) at the Imperial College for Science and Technology (IC) in 1973 to pursue his studies under the direct supervision of DSc Brian Spalding, globally recognized as the father of CFD. Amr was granted a PhD from IC in 1977, and after some short post-doctoral research at the Atomic Energy labs in Harwell, UK, he returned to Cairo University to resume his academic career, where he was as an assistant Professor in 1997, then appointed as an associate professor in 1983, and finally a full professor in 1988.
Serag El Din remained affiliated with Cairo University until joining AUC in 1996. However, from 1983 to 1987, he joined IBM's WTC research center in Egypt, where he first joined as a scientist and was later promoted to project leader, and finally to projects coordinator. His main task during this period was to develop new computer intensive applications in thermo-fluids.
From 1988 to 1996, Serag El Din founded and supervised the Higher Institute for Energy in Aswan as the acting dean. This institute was the result of joint collaboration between the Ministries of Higher Education and Energy and was the first institute to be accredited by the Supreme Council of Higher Universities.
Serag El Din joined AUC in Fall 1996, as a full-time faculty in the then Mechanical Engineering Unit of the Engineering department. He taught Thermo-fluids and Computational Analysis courses. In Fall 1997, he was appointed Unit head and occupied that position until the unit expanded to a full department in Fall 2000. He then chaired the newfound department for the following six years from 2000 to 2006.
