Biography

Dr Mohyeddin received a Bachelor Degree in Civil Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, a Masters Degree in Earthquake Engineering from The University of Tehran and a PhD in Structural Engineering from The University of Melbourne. He joined the School of Engineering at ECU in 2012. He is the Course Coordinator of all the undergraduate and postgraduate (coursework) courses across the Discipline of Civil and Environmental as well as Maritime Engineering. Dr Mohyeddin established the Structural Engineering Research Laboratory at ECU, and was the Project Manager of a multi-million plan for this lab (commissioned in 2016). He was also the Lead Engineer of the Modular Reaction Frame design project as well as a Steel Base-Frame design project for SER Laboratory. Dr Mohyeddin is a member of Australian Engineered Fasteners and Anchors Council (AEFAC) Standard Development Committee. The document developed by this committee is available through SAI Global as a Standards Australia Technical Specification (TS 101). He is the facilitator of the research collaboration between ECU and Centre for Disaster Management and Public Safety (CDMPS) based at The University of Melbourne. He worked as a Project Coordinator and a Structural Engineer for more than 6 years, where he was involved in many aspects of civil engineering profession from analysis and design of Steel and RC structures to project coordination.
