Mustafa Mahamid, PhD, SE, PE, P.Eng, F.ASCE, F.SEI
Clinical Associate Professor, Director of Undergraduate Studies
University of Illinois at Chicago
Dr. Mahamid is currently a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a structural Engineering consultant for multiple structural engineering firms in the US and abroad. He worked as a structural engineer at GRAEF and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) in Chicago. His experience covers the various building materials, including concrete, steel, wood, and masonry. His current research projects include analysis and behavior of steel connections, seismic and non-seismic, reinforced concrete slabs and joints, behavior of structural members subjected to fire, behavior and analysis of composite member, and analysis and behavior of cross-laminated timber.
Dr. Mahamid serves on several technical national committees; he authored and coauthored numerous journal and conference papers.
He is a licensed Structural Engineer (SE) in the State of Illinois and registered Professional Engineer (PE) in California, Washington, Wisconsin, and Michigan, a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) in Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada and registered Civil Engineer in Israel. He is a Fellow of ASCE (F.ASCE) and ASCE’s Structural Engineering Institute (F.SEI).
Dr. Mahamid’s research areas and interest include behavior of steel structures with the focus on steel connections for seismic applications, behavior of concrete structures with the focus on reinforced concrete joints and connections for seismic applications, earthquake resistant design, computations & mechanics, structural mechanics, building codes and code development. As a practicing structural engineer, Dr. Mahamid is interested in studying the methods & techniques to bridging theory into practice, and Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools in structural engineering.
