Husseine Ousmane Ahmat
Lecturer at the University of Sherbrooke (QC, Canada).
I obtained my PhD (with Excellence) from the University of Sherbrooke where I was a Vanier Scholar of Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. I am also a project coordinator at the Research ...more
Center for Sustainable Concrete Infrastructure at the University of Sherbrooke. Prior to joining the University of Sherbrooke, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Sharjah (UoS). As an international alumnus of the UoS, I indebted to quality of training I have acquired at this institution. UoS programs in Civil Engineering acquainted me with sound technical knowledge and transversal skills that enabled me to attain some steep accomplishments (competing sometimes with candidates from around Canada). To mention few of such incidences:
(i) NSERC- Canada Vanier Scholarship (the most competitive doctoral scholarship Canada-wide)
(ii) the Leonardo de Vinci Medal (the highest distinction that can be offered by the College of Engineering at the University of Sherbrooke), as well as the 2020 Best PhD at the University of Sherbrooke (among 86 PhD theses defended in 2020). Thanks to highly qualified faculty, world-caliber research infrastructure, and rigorous academic programs at UoS which synergistically fostered my preparedness for a research intensive career. Of particular interest, the NSERC-Canada Vanier Scholarship is a special program designed by the Canadian government to attract highly qualified doctoral students in alignment with Canada’s strategic priority of knowledge-based economy.
I am proud that my current research environment at the University of Sherbrooke has high esteem for UoS graduates such that a recommendation of mine has opened the path to another doctoral student from UoS.
