PhD in Applied Mechanics
Professor Shaker Meguid is an internationally renowned scholar with significant contributions in computational and experimental mechanics at varied length scales. Undoubtedly, his research activities have contributed significantly to the areas of multiscale modelling, advanced and smart nanocomposites, crashworthiness, fracture mechanics and failure prevention.
He has published 285 papers in leading tier-1 scientific journals, 240 presentations in international conferences of significance with a large number being invited as keynote and plenary speaker. He authored 4 books on fracture mechanics, nanomechanics and micromechanics, edited17 international conference proceedings and contributed 17 book chapters.
He is the Founding Editor-in-Chief of Int. J of Mechanics and Materials in Design, former Technical Associate Editor of ASME J. of Engineering Materials and Technology (for two consecutive terms), former Associate Editor of IMechE Journal of Mechanical Process Engineering, Guest Editor to a number of Journals including Mechanics of Materials and a member of the editorial board of numerous journals.
He is the Founding Head of the Aerospace Engineering Division of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He taught different branches of mechanics in 4 continents: Europe (Manchester, Oxford (England) and Milano Polytecnico (Italy)), North America (Toronto, Canada), and Asia (NTU, Singapore), Hunan, Peking, and BIE (China), and Africa (Cairo University, Egypt).
He is an Engineering Consultant to the United Nations, a lifetime senior member of AIAA, member of the American Academy of Mechanics, Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario (PEng), Chartered Engineer in Great Britain (CEng), Fellow of ASME, Fellow of IMechE and Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada.
He works closely with the aerospace and automotive industries and is regularly approached by members of the media for clarification of engineering issues and accidents.
Professor Meguid and his research team won many awards, with the most recent honor being the nomination by his department for the gold medal by the Governor General of Canada, holder of the Robert Hooke Award bestowed by the European Society for Experimental Mechanics, Engineering Award-Research and Development by the Professional Engineers of Ontario for his significant contribution to research and development in Canada.
