Research, Grants and Scholarship


Dr. Hassan El-Kishky received a B.Sc. degree in Electric Power Systems and Rotating Machines from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 1984 and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Assiut University, Assiut, Egypt, and Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, in 1990 and 1995, respectively. Currently, he is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas, Tyler.

He is also a consultant in the broad areas of electric power systems and electromagnetic interference/electromagnetic compatibility (EMI/EMC) and a co-founder of National Energy Technologies, LLC, providing services in the design and analysis of electrical systems. He was the Research and Development Manager at National Electric Coil from 1997 to 1998.

His areas of interest include aircraft electric power systems, high-voltage insulation systems for large rotating machines, stress grading, corona-suppression systems, modeling of the high-voltage phenomena, power quality of electric power systems, and Smart Grid, as well as electromagnetic interference and compatibility.

Dr. El-Kishky is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Texas. He is also a certified EMC engineer by iNARTE.
