Faculty Researcher of the Year - Engineering, the Built Environment and Technology

Prof Khaled Abou-El-Hossein

The Ultra-High Precision Manufacturing Laboratory, the only one of its kind on the African continent, researches new ways of making optical components used in the aerospace and automotive industries and performs optimisation and modelling of existing manufacturing methods.  The processes involved in optics manufacturing are costly to run and need to be well-designed and analysed.  The laboratory attracts a large number of postgraduates from different regions in Africa.

We always learn by doing.
