Dr Ahmed Onsy

Deputy Head School of Engineering, For Business Development and Partnerships
School of Engineering

Ahmed has been awarded his PhD from the School of Mechanical and Systems Engineering, Design Unit and Mechatronics Group, Newcastle University, UK. His main research interests are intelligent diagnostics and health management systems, intelligent maintenance systems, advanced mechatronics, and embedded systems which can be directly applied to Intelligent Diagnostic and Health Management (DHM) and Predictive Health Monitoring (PHM) systems for oil well, wind turbine, aerospace (SHM & HUM), marine, and automotive applications. Ahmed is contributing to research within the area of Maintenance and Intelligent Machines (Tribotronics) and is a member of the Jost Institute for Tribotechnology. Ahmed is teaching many modules on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes; Mechatronics and Intelligent Machines, Intelligent Maintenance Engineering and Maintenance Engineering.

Ahmed is the Deputy Head School of Engineering for Business Development and Partnerships, driving school of Engineering UK and International Partnerships. Ahmed is a member of the University Research and Innovation Committee.

Ahmed took different roles at the University of Central Lancashire, School of Engineering since 2014, Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Principal Lecturer and Academic Lead for the Mechanical and Maintenance Engineering area. He successfully managed to place the Mechanical Engineering Programmes in the top 15 universities in the UK in 2020 NSS results in overall students satisfaction. Ahmed led the development of the Engineering Academy since 2015 and currently more than 250 international students attend these summer programmes every year.
