Waiel Elmadih

Manufacturing Engineering PhD Student, Faculty of Engineering



A Manufacturing Engineering Ph.D. student and a Mechanical Engineering Tutor at The University of Nottingham, currently working towards several journal publications. He received a first class MSc qualification in Manufacturing Engineering and Management from The University of Nottingham (2016). Prior to that, he was awarded a first class BSc (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering at The University of Khartoum where he served as a Teaching Assistant. His interpersonal and technical skills landed him several engineering jobs at Rolls‑Rolls PLC (2016) and DAL Group (2015). His current research includes the investigation of additively manufactured lattice structures for vibration and thermal isolation of precision engineering instruments. His previous research included designing mechanical gearbox for a wind turbine, and engineering of several HVAC systems.
