Dr Hany Hassanin

Reader in Engineering

School of Engineering, Technology and Design

I am a Reader and Research Lead of engineering.

I am currently a Reader and Research Lead for Engineering at the School of Engineering, Technology, and Design at Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU). Prior to this, I held positions as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool and Kingston University.

My educational background includes a PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Birmingham, and I specialize in design and advanced manufacturing for applications in aerospace, biomedical engineering, and energy.

I have over 100 research outputs to my name, including 66 journal papers, 25 conference articles, 7 book chapters, 1 book, and 2 patents. Throughout my career, I have also held honorary researcher positions at prestigious universities and hospitals such as the University of Birmingham, Kingston University, and the University of Liverpool.

In addition, I am a member of the EPSRC reviewer college and serve as Editor, Guest Editor, and reviewer for several journals. I am also a referee for academic promotion panels, a chartered engineer, and an external PhD examiner.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and I have been involved in designing and teaching a diverse range of engineering modules at several HE institutes for over 15 years including (the University of Liverpool, Kingston University, Helwan University in Egypt, and Canterbury Christ Church University).  

Modules that I have led as part of my teaching practice include:

1.    Additive manufacturing and materials (CCCU, MSC).

2.    Industry 4.0, 5.0 (CCCU, MSC)

3.    Computer aided engineering and design (CCCU, Level 5)

4.    Fundamentals of Materials (CCCU, Foundation)

5.    Manufacturing Systems (University of Liverpool-Level 6)

6.    Engineering Design and Manufacturing (Kingston University-level 4, 5)

7.    Advanced Stress Analysis & Materials ((Kingston University -MSc)

8.    Advanced CAD/CAM Systems (Kingston University -MSc)

9.    Computer Integrated Product Development (Kingston University -MSc)

10.    Fundamentals of Materials (University of Birmingham-level 4)

11.    Business Management and Quality Systems ((Kingston University -level 6)

12.    Fundamentals of Manufacturing Processes (Kingston University -Level 4).

I have co-authored over 100 research outputs, and  I have an h-index of 31. These publications cover a wide range of topics such as materials, design, simulation, nanotechnology, biomaterials, education and others.

One of my papers was awarded a top cited paper for Advanced Engineering Materials. I have been actively pursuing research in the areas of scholarships and pedagogy with the goal of enhancing the student learning experience. Through this, I have made several contributions to the field, including four publications in reputable engineering education journals and conference proceedings.

I also published 7 book chapters, one book, and two patents.
