Mohy Saad Mansour is a professor of thermo-fluids, combustion and laser diagnostics of turbulent reacting flows at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The American University in Cairo.He received his BSc and MSc degrees from Cairo University in mechanical engineering. Later, he was awarded his PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Sydney - Australia.
Mansour started his career at the department of mechanical power engineering - Cairo University in 1981 as a tutor and teaching assistant. He was appointed lecturer assistant (1985); lecturer (1992); associate professor (1997) and finally professor (2002) at the same department. He joined The American University in Cairo during the period 1999 - 2005. He continued as a part-time professor before joining AUC again in Fall 2012. He was appointed several administrative positions as the dean of the National Institute of Laser Enhanced Sciences (NILES) - Cairo University for the period 2005-2008, the dean of the faculty of engineering, BeniSuef University for the period 2009-2010 and finally the vice-president for education and students affairs at BeniSuef University for the period 2010-2011.
Mansour established a laser diagnostics lab at the Institute of combustion RWTH University of Aachen- Germany during the period 1990-1992 and continued to visit and provide support to the PhD students working in this lab on regular basis every year. He also has several international research links with Lund University, Cleveland State University, North Carolina State University, and Sydney University. He published 101 papers with total citations of 1636 and h-index of 21 (google scholar-Aug 2018) and 1137 citations with 19 h-index (Scopus – Aug 2017). In 1997 he received a highly ranked national award in Engineering Sciences from the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT). His major fields of research are energy, combustion, laser applications in laminar- turbulent-reacting flows and material technology, and combustion systems. Mansour is able to attract national and international research funds. He is in close contact with his students at AUC and Cairo University.
