Mustapha M. Hamad received a B.S. EE, an M.S. EE, and a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of South Florida, Tampa Florida, in 1989, 1991, and 1995 respectively.

Dr. Hamad joined the faculty of engineering at Notre Dame University in October 1997 as an assistant professor in the department of Electrical Computer and Communication Engineering (ECCE).† He was promoted to the rank of associate professor in 2004. His research interests include microelectronics design and test, VLSI, semiconductor device modeling and simulation, and engineering education.

As a research engineer, he worked on various research projects for the center for microelectronics research at the University of South Florida, Tampa form 1991 to 1993. Under contract for the department of defense (DOD) and the Florida high technology research council, the work involved design and test of high speed digital circuits targeted for signal processing applications. Also, he worked as graduate teaching associate at the University of South Florida, Tampa, from 1993 to 1996.

Currently, Dr. Hamad teaches courses in the area of electronics (analog and digital) and is the coordinator for several fundamental courses in the ECCE department. He authored and co-authored a number of articles published in refereed journals and conferences. In addition, he was selected as reviewer in some IEEE international conferences.
