Ayman Kassem, PhD
Professor and Chair of Aerospace engineering department, Cairo University
Dr. Kassem has received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering from Cairo University in 1990 and 1993 respectively. He got his Ph.D. in 1998 from Old Dominion University, USA. He joined Aerospace Department at Cairo University in 1998 as an assistant professor and he joined the research and training team for EgyptSat-1 satellite project (1999-2001). He got a second Master degree in Computer Science in 2002. From 2004 to 2011, he had joined Aerospace department at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), Saudi Arabia.
During his stay at KFUPM, Dr. Kassem had developed the syllabi for the flight and space dynamics and control courses in the newly establishing Aerospace department. He also shared in shaping the strategic plan for the development of Space and Aeronautical capabilities for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (2008-2012). Now, he is a professor of flight and space dynamics and control in Aerospace Engineering Department, Cairo University.
