Maged Mikhail, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Mechatronics Engineering Technology
Maged Mikhail joined PNW in 2015 as an assistant professor of mechatronics engineering technology where he teaches undergraduate and graduate students and supervises their research projects.
Mikhail’s research is focusing on control automation and robotics. He aspires to develop a robotics and automation research area to advise graduate and undergraduate students and to collaborate with industry, scientists and researchers both inside and outside of the department. He is also conducting research on physical and cyber-security for advanced manufacturing systems.
I enjoy playing soccer, walking, hands-on activities and traveling.

Mikhail is teaching most of mechatronics courses including: programmable logic controller, programming industrial robot, robotic system integration, vision system AC/DC circuits, special topics in mechatronics and programming mobile robots.
Previously, he taught in Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, TN, and Tennessee State University (TSU). He also worked on research projects for the U.S. Air force (Dayton, OH), as well as for Boeing at TSU.
Providing the Best for Students
Professor Mikhail’s goal is to have students actively seek knowledge and not simply receive knowledge strictly from lectures.
