Electrical Engineering Technology Faculty Candidate Presentation – Nathir Rawashdeh, PhD, German Jordanian University


Nathir Rawashdeh, a candidate for the faculty position in the School of Technology’s Electrical Engineering Technology program, will present “Applied Research in Mechatronics Engineering: Image Quality Analysis, Industrial Visual Inspection, Autonomous Driving, and Electromobility.” The presentation will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 19 in Rekhi Hall G006.

Mechatronics engineering is the synergetic application of electrical, mechanical, computer, and control engineering. In today’s industry and engineering systems, there are many such mixed systems. Students benefit greatly from learning about more than one classic field, especially when the curriculum includes technologically up-to-date laboratory classes.

This presentation consists of two parts. In the first part, Rawashdeh will show examples of his research in the fields of image quality analysis, industrial visual inspection, autonomous driving, and electromobility.

The second part consists of examples of applied student projects in the field of mechatronics engineering. These include mobile robots, industrial robots, visual inspection, and automotive engineering.

Rawashdeh is an Associate Professor of Mechatronics Engineering and Acting Vice Dean of the School of Applied Technical Sciences at the German Jordanian University.
