Youssef Hamid completed his MSc. in Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering in May 2014 at the French University Arts et Metiers Paristech (ENSAM). Shortly after, he joined the Edison Engineering Graduate Program with GE Measurement & Control in Leicester.
He came to Loughborough University in September 2016 to start a multidisciplinary EPSRC sponsored PhD degree with Dr David Hutt at the CDT-EI (Center of Doctorate Training – Embedded intelligence).
PhD Thesis Title: Packaging and integration effects for MEMS pressure sensors
Druck Ltd manufactures pressure sensors that monitor liquid and gas systems for many industries including automotive, aerospace and industrial. In harsh operating environments, the MEMS sensing element interacts with the external medium to measure pressure inputs while being protected from it to avoid damage. As such, this project will explore the effects the packaging elements used to protect the sensing elements on the performance of the sensor in service.
