Dr. Mostafa El Sayed is the Director of the Aerospace Materials and Structures Laboratory (AMS-Lab)┬áin the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Carleton University. He received his B.Sc. (1997) and M.Sc. (2002) from the Military Technical College and his Ph.D. (2010) from McGill University. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 2011 to 2015, Dr. El Sayed was an Aircraft Loads Engineering Specialist at Bombardier Aerospace. He was involved in all of Bombardier’s new development programs, as well as in the Research and Development of the company’s strategic technologies and future aircraft concepts. His contributions included the implementation of a wide range of dynamic loads analyses for aircraft structural design and optimization. He was also the knowledge owner of the aircraft Water Ditching and Sustained Engine Imbalance (SEI) analyses and a member of the in-service support team. Dr. Mostafa El Sayed is a certified Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario (PEO).
