Personal Profile

Dr. Elruby earned his bachelor’s degree in mechatronics (2009) from the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT), one of two ABET-accredited programs in Egypt. He pursued a master’s degree focusing on the Intelligent Control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) from AASTMT (2012).

Dr. Elruby moved to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2015 to pursue his doctorate degree from Memorial University. His PhD thesis focused on the mechanical behavior, multiscale modeling and failure predictions of different materials utilizing linear and non-linear finite element analysis. Upon earning his PhD, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow with two departments: Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

His research is multidisciplinary in different fields with the main focus on mechanical characterization and failure.
