Dr Ahmad Taha

  • Lecturer: UESTC (Autonomous Systems & Connectivity)

Biography

Ahmad Taha is a Lecturer in the Glasgow College UESTC at the University of Glasgow. He is Endorsed by the Royal Academy of Engineering as an Exceptional Promise under the Global Talent scheme, a Fellow of Advanced Higher Education (FHEA), and a UKCGE recognised Associate Supervisor. He first joined the University of Glasgow in October 2020 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate working in collaboration with several industrial and academic partners including Cisco and the University of Strathclyde, on the 5G New Thinking project, funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). He has 8+ years’ experience working in Higher Education (HE) Institutions, delivering teaching in Egypt, the UK and China.

He received a dual B.Sc. with Honours from October University for Modern Sciences and Arts (MSA) in Egypt and the University of Greenwich in the UK, in 2012. He was a recipient of two scholarships to pursue his M.Sc. and PhD, after a successful Vice-Chancellor award application, in 2013 and 2016, respectively, at the University of Greenwich. He completed his M.Sc degree, with a distinction, in Embedded Systems in 2014 and his PhD in 2020, which was partially funded and in collaboration with Medway NHS Foundation Trust in Kent, UK. He was nominated for the Energy Institute award in 2019 due to contributions in technology-based energy-saving systems in the NHS.
