Dr. Mahjoub M. Elnimeiri holds a BSc. In Civil Engineering (with Honors) from the University of Khartoum, a D.I.C. and M. Sc. in Structural Engineering from London University at Imperial College, London, England, and Ph.D. in Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics from Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois USA (1974).
Since then he has been involved in the practice of structural and architectural work of buildings in Chicago, USA and overseas. He is very active and well known in the professional and academic communities. He has been a speaker in many conferences and conventions. His expertise is in the areas of structural analysis, design,construction of buildings (particularly tall buildings), and in the applications of computer technology. His publications are directly related to these areas, and he is a recipient of the “State of The Art Award” of the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1989. He is a member of a number of professional societies, and also a member of the steering group of CTBUH.
