Akram Alomainy received the M.Eng. degree in communication engineering and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering (specialized in antennas and radio propagation) from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), U.K., in July 2003 and July 2007, respectively. He joined the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, QMUL, in 2007, where he is a Professor of Antennas & Applied EM. He has authored and co-authored 5 books, 6 book chapters, and more than 500 technical papers (11500+ citations) in leading journals and peer-reviewed conferences. Prof Alomainy won the Isambard Brunel Kingdom Award, in 2011, for being an outstanding young science and engineering communicator and the QMUL 2019 Educational Excellence Award. He was selected to deliver a TEDx talk about the science of electromagnetic and also participated in many public engagement initiatives and festivals. He is an elected member of the UK URSI (International Union of Radio Science) panel to represent the UK interests of URSI Commission B.


Design and Build Project in Electronic Engineering (Undergraduate)

A group project for second-year electronic engineering students to enable them to learn practical skills in solving engineering problems using electronics. Not open to Associate Students or students from other departments.

Advanced Group Project (Undergraduate)

A group project for fourth-year integrated master of engineering and science on both electronic engineering and computer science streams students to enable them to conduct a one-year advanced technology-oriented and team-based project working on the state-of-the-art technologies and concepts.
