Mirza F Ahmed


Faculty of Applied Science & Technology

Mirza Foisal Ahmed obtained his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering with Honors from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Bangladesh (2006), then he worked as a Project Manager in a Multinational Company “China National Electric Wire & Cable Imp./Exp. Corp.”, Bangladesh for two years. He obtained his Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from Changwon National University, South Korea (2010), and his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in Materials Science from Toronto Metropolitan University (previous Ryerson University), Canada (conferral date: October 15, 2014). He mentored one master’s student, two undergraduate summer students, and three Ph.D. students during his two years’ Postdoctoral research in Toronto Metropolitan University and Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Chicoutimi, Canada. He has been an Instructor in Mechanical Engineering in the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Sheridan College, Canada since May 2017. He has extensive experiences in various mechanical testing and advanced microstructural analysis (optical/SEM-EDX microscopy/XRD/EBSD/TEM). He has ample experiences in designing software’s such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks and CATIA. He published 21 peer-reviewed international journal articles, plus twenty conference papers. He has 679 citations based on Google Scholar: He co-authored one invited book chapter entitled “Fatigue of lightweight magnesium alloys” in the Aerospace Materials Handbook (2013), one invited review paper in the journal of Fatigue and Fracture of Engineering Materials and Structures, which awarded as a Most Cited Paper in 2017.
