Mostafa Elsaadany

  • Lecturer


Ph.D., Biomedical Engineering, University of Toledo, 2017
M.S., Mechanical Engineering, The American University in Cairo, 2012
B.S., Mechanical Engineering, Cairo University, 2008



Dr. Elsaadany is a lecturer of Engineering at The Ohio State University – Marion. He teaches Fundamentals of Engineering as well as Statics, Mechanics of Materials and Materials Science Engineering. His current research thrusts include studying the perception of rustbelt community students of engineering education, promoting inclusive classroom environment for underrepresented engineering students, and comparing traditional engineering education methods to the novel pedagogical theories. Moreover, Dr. Elsaadany is interested in the interdisciplinary field of Tissue Engineering. He is primarily studying the regeneration of the musculoskeletal system by the integration of Computational Modeling, Biomaterials, Biomechanics, and Mechanobiology.
