Mohamad Darwiche

Assistant Professor

Mohamad Darwiche received his B. Sc. in Electronics Electro-Technical Automatic Engineering from the UBP University, Clermont-Ferrand, France in 2008. He received his Master degree in Materials and devices for microwave communication systems from UBO, Brest, France in 2009 and PhD degree in Structural Mechanics and Acoustics Engineering from Maine University, France in 2013.

His PhD thesis dealt with Statistical Learning for non-destructive control and evaluation: application to estimating the remaining lifetime of materials and structures.

He worked as a part timer Assistant Professor in Spring 2014, and from Fall-2014 till now he is a full-time Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Beirut Arab University (BAU), Debbieh Campus.
