Mohamed Mahgoub, PhD, PE, is an assistant professor in the department of civil engineering at NJIT’s Newark College of Engineering. He is also director of NJIT’s Concrete Industry Management Program. He is an expert in bridge rehabilitation, inspection, rating, design and analysis. He is also familiar with the policies and design standards of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and the Federal Highway Association.
Prior to joining NJIT, he was the lead bridge engineer for the Chicago consulting firm Alfred Benesch & Company, working out of Lansing, Michigan on bridge design for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT). Earlier, he was a structural engineer for an Egyptian engineering consulting firm where he gained experience in designing building structures and construction.
As a doctoral student, Mahgoub contributed significant changes to Canada’s National Building Code in 2005. His expertise included higher mode effects; base shear and moment distribution on building; torsional behavior of single and multistory buildings; and the significance of P-delta effect on high-rise buildings.
Mahgoub is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI), International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), and American Concrete Institute (ACI). ACI has appointed him through March of 2015 chair of Committee 555 (Concrete with Recycled Materials). He is a reviewer for ACI Materials and Structural Journals, ASCE Bridge Journal, PCI Journal, and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International Journal.
Mahgoub currently serves as a panelist for the National Science Foundation and has more than 20 technical and scientific publications and presentations to his credit. He received his Master’s Degree from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and his doctorate from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
