Alireza is a Lecturer in Engineering within the School of Engineering.

Current Teaching

  • ENS3190/6136 – Mechanics of Solids
  • ENS3243/6149 – Structural Analysis
  • ENS2620 – Surveying and Site Management


Dr Mohyeddin holds a Bachelor Degree in Civil Engineering, Master Degree inEarthquake Engineering and a PhD in Structural Engineering.

He joined the School of Engineering at ECU in 2012. He has been the CourseCoordinator of all the undergraduate and postgraduate (coursework) coursesacross the Discipline of Civil and Environmental as well as MaritimeEngineering in the School of Engineering since 2013.

Dr Mohyeddin has established the Structural Engineering Research Laboratoryat ECU, and has been the Project Manager of a multimillion plan for this lab(commissioned in 2016). He has also been the Lead Engineer of the ModularReaction Frame design project as well as a Steel Base-Frame design project forSER Laboratory.

Dr Mohyeddin is a member of Australian Engineered Fasteners and AnchorsCouncil (AEFAC) Standard Development Committee. The document developed by thiscommittee is available through SAI Global as a Standards Australia TechnicalSpecification (TS 101).

He is the facilitator of the research collaboration between ECU and Centrefor Disaster Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) based at The University ofMelbourne.

He worked as a Project Coordinator and a Structural Engineer for more than 6years, where he was involved in many aspects of civil engineering professionfrom analysis and design of Steel and RC structures to project coordination.
