  • Education History:

    Prof. Bahei-El-Din earned his B.Sc. in Civil Engineering in 1972 from Cairo University with distinction and honours. He earned his M.Sc. in 1976 and Ph.D. in 1979 from Duke University at Durham, NC, USA with a major in Civil Engineering and specialty in Solid Mechanics. While a graduate student Prof. Bahei-El-Din worked in several funded projects in composite materials and structures and his Ph.D. was among the first in the U.S. to contribute to constitutive modelling of advanced composites. Before joining BUE in September 2007, Prof. Bahei-El-Din was a tenured professor at Cairo University and visiting professor at Duke University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NC State University and the University of Utah in the USA. Prof. Bahei-El-Din is renowned for his work in composite materials and structures which earned him recognitions and awards from the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology in Egypt, and NASA and the National Academy of Sciences in the USA. Prof. Bahei-El-Din is the founding director of the Centre for Advanced Materials at BUE.
