Abdelrahman Abdelmotagaly


Abdelrahman got his B.Sc. degree in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from Suez University in Egypt in 2014. He then worked in the Central Metallurgical Research and Development Institute in Cairo as a research assistant. He was awarded his Master’s degree from Colorado School of Mines through a Fulbright scholarship in May 2020. The thesis topic dealt with developing high entropy alloys to mitigate liquid metal embrittlement during resistance spot welding of advanced high strength steel (patent pending). Currently, he is working on evaluation of additive manufacturing, clad pipes, and their weldments for third generation concentrated solar power systems (Gen3 CSP) for his PhD. He expects to graduate in 2023. Abdelrahman has five years of experience in friction stir welding and processing, resistance spot welding, alloy development, and metal casting.
