Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Jamal Ahmad received a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from NC State University in 1993. His research focuses in the areas of machining polymer composites, friction stir welding and energy efficiency. He has worked for the past twenty five years with government, academic, and industry organizations on applied research (experimental and analytical) in secondary manufacturing of composites, composites machining and tooling, composites applications in the petroleum industry and metal machining by both traditional and nontraditional techniques.

His work in the area of traditional machining of fiber-reinforced polymer composites is internationally recognized. Before his current appointment, he was a post-doctoral associate and a research assistant professor at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NC State University (1993-1998) and a faculty member at Wichita State University (1998-2005).
