From the engineering departments: Tamer El Batt, professor and director of the graduate program, department of computer science and engineering; Ezzeldin Sayed-Ahmed Yazeed, professor and director of the graduate program in the department of construction engineering; Yehea Ismail, professor at the department of electronics and communications engineering and director of the nanoelectronics and devices center at AUC and Zewail City; Amal Esawi professor at the department of mechanical engineering; Maki Habib, professor at the department of mechanical engineering; Mohy Mansour, professor at the department of mechanical engineering.
Hassan El-Fawal, dean of the School of Sciences and Engineering at AUC, said: "Since coming to the School of Sciences and Engineering, I have always described its faculty as those who have regional expertise with global impact. The placement of several of our faculty in the 2% most impactful, globally, substantiates that belief.”
