B.S. Mechanical Engineering
University of Evansville 2020
Ahmed was born and raised in El-Fayoum, Egypt. Since middle school, Ahmed showed an interest in science and Engineering which made him join one of the newly initiated STEM boarding high school in Egypt, where he polished his first engineering skills and decided to come to the US to get his mechanical engineering degree. He completed his undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Evansville, Indiana. Ahmed has a passion for learning new things, especially when it comes to aerospace. His work at the University of Evansville was focused mainly on fluid mechanics and the dynamics of wheeled vehicles. While completing his undergraduate degree, he worked at EWSU, where his work included: flow measurements, designing of new pump system, and determining fluid flow’s chemical and mechanical properties to aid the building of a new treatment plant. Ahmed joined the BAM Lab in fall 2020 to expand his knowledge and follow his passion for science and engineering.
Ahmed joined the BAM Lab in the fall of 2020 and is using his knowledge and experience to design a passively deployable flap system which provides a new paradigm for simple, effective flow control of unsteady aerodynamic phenomena.
