Dr. Salah Badjou
- Dr. Badjou holds a Ph.D. in Condensed Matter Physics from Northeastern University, Boston, MA with a dissertation involving the modeling of electronic transport. He taught electromechanical engineering as full-time faculty from 2000 to 2014, as well as electrical and mechanical engineering to industry professionals for two years, at Wentworth Institute of Technology, Boston. He taught physics lab experiments for five years at Northeastern University, Boston, MA. and physics and the sciences at several other colleges and universities. Dr. Badjou has extensive experience in engineering and physics curriculum and lab experiment development. He developed a successful and innovative biomedical system engineering concentration which he integrated in the existing five-year electromechanical engineering program at Wentworth Institute of Technology. He taught electromechanical engineering design projects for eight years. His research projects have involved biomedical and renewable energy engineering, engineering education, and applied physics, and he has contributed many peer-reviewed papers. In addition, he has extensive experience in engineering accreditation. He was Director of the Pre-engineering program for three years at Whitworth University, Spokane, WA. His industry experience includes a postdoctoral fellowship in chemical engineering, research and development in high-voltage engineering, and consulting in biomedical engineering (PET imaging system for the detection of brain tumors).
