Dr. Mahamoud Younes is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Head of the Department of Basic Sciences at the Faculty of Engineering, Heliopolis University for Sustainable Development.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in 1990 and his master’s in 1997 in mechanical engineering at the Military Technical College. He received his PhD in mechanical engineering as well at Manchester University, United Kingdom in 2003. In 2010, he has been promoted to be an Associate Professor at the Military Technical College and has been the Head of the Department of Engineering Mechanics at the same college between 2007 and 2013.

Dr. Younes’ research interests focus on the design of safety related structures and systems, impact damage and failure analysis of plates and shell structures, penetration mechanics of low and high velocity impact, and experimental examination of various test specimens loaded with different strain rates. He has been working in a number of scholarly projects including:

  • Enhancement of penetration resistance of the steel helmet (experimental investigation)
  • Stress analysis of shell structures subjected to impact loading
  • Damage prediction of axially crushed corrugated frusta

He was awarded a postgraduate scholarship by the Military Technical College to earn his PhD in mechanical engineering from Manchester University – United Kingdom, from 2000 – 2003. He was a member of the scientific committee that supervises the sessions of “Solid Mechanics” of the annual conferences held by the Military Technical College between 2003 and 2016. He received from the Egyptian Armed Forces the “25th of January” and “30th of June” medals and the medal of military duty of first class.
