Brief Biography

Amr El-Kadi is professor of computer systems engineering and former chair at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The American University in Cairo (AUC).  He is a consultant to the World Bank Group (WBG).

El-Kadi was a member of the IEEE Computer Society and Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) joint task force on Software Engineering Ethics and Professional Practices (SEEPP) that developed the software engineering code of ethics and professional practices adopted by both ACM and IEEE-Computer Society. Currently, he is a member of Software Engineering Professional Ethics Project (SEPEP) sponsored by the Software Engineering Coordinating Committee (SWECC) which is carrying on the work to professionalize software engineering. 

El-Kadi served as a consultant research scientist at EMC2 for the Middle East, Gulf and Africa Region. He was also visiting research professor at The Institute for Massively Parallel Architecture and Computing Technology, The George Washington University, Washington DC, USA in 2013.

Before joining AUC, he served as a consultant and systems engineer for the Department of Engineering of the Government of the District of Columbia, USA.  Consulting engineer with the Information, Technology and Facilities Department at the World Bank, Washington DC. He also taught undergraduate and graduate level courses in EECS at the George Washington University, Washington DC.

El-Kadi is a senior member of both the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society. He served as the Middle East representative of the IEEE Technical Committee on Operating Systems and Applications Environments.  Member of advisory board of the IEEE Computer Society Special Technical Community on Operating Systems (STCOS). In 1994, he received the IEEE-CS Award of Appreciation.  He is also a member of Eta Kappa Nu; the US National Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor Society, and the Association for Computing Machinery where he served as past chair of the ACM Egypt chapter.
