Assistant Lecturer Yasser Mohamed
Assistant Lecturer

Mr. Yasser received his Bachelor degree in Science in 2008 from the faculty of science at Cairo University with a very good degree. On December 2012, Yasser joined the faculty of Engineering at the British University in Egypt (BUE) as a Lab Chemist. After two years of experience, he was promoted to be a Chemistry Lab Specialist. During this period, he finished the postgraduate courses required as a partial fulfillment for the master degree in Science in Physical Chemistry at Cairo University. On parallel he was working on the experimental part of his master’s program, which addressed “Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Small Organic Molecules at Metal/Metal Oxide Nanoparticles Modified Electrodes”, which was finished on August 2018. At December 2018, he was promoted as an assistant Lecture in the chemical engineering department at the British University in Egypt. Additionally, at June 2019 he registered for the PhD degree in Physical Chemistry at Ain-Shams University which addressed “Fabrication and Characterization of Metal/Metal Oxide Nanostructured Catalysts for Applications in Liquid Fuel Cells “and now He is working for the experimental part of his PhD degree.
