Educational Background

Doctor of Philosophy Mechanical Engineering, Purdue University, 1992

M.S. Mechanical Engineering, University of Baghdad, 1978

B.S. Mechanical Engineering, University of Baghdad, 1976


Professor Mohamad graduated with a BSc and MSc from Baghdad University's College of Engineering with honors. His PhD is from the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University in the US. Dr. Mohamad has been invited by many institutes around the world as a keynote speaker, invited professor, lecturer, and theses and program evaluator. He has organized and chaired/co-chaired a few successful conferences on the transport in porous media and computational fluid dynamics, and heat and mass transfer.

Professor Mohamad is the author of a textbook (entitled Lattice Boltzmann Method Fundamentals and Engineering Applications with Computer Codes), published by Springer in 2011. The second edition will be available in 2019. This book is translated into two languages (Chinese by Springer and a Parisian by a private publisher).

Dr. Mohamad was acting Dean of Engineering, Alfaisal University, while he was on leave from the University of Calgary.
