Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering – City University of New York, New York, NY - 2006
M.S. in Mechanical Engineering – City College of New York, New York, NY - 2001
B.S. in Mechanical Engineering – Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran – 1998
Mohamad Zoghi attended Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran to receive his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. After obtaining his degree, he worked in the petrochemical industry for two years. Mohamad then attended City College of the City University of New York (CCNY) for his graduate studies in 2000, and received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering on 2006. His main area of research was application of finite element (FE) modeling in biomechanics. In his thesis he performed accident reconstruction of lift truck operators. He then developed a human head FE model to evaluate head injury risks under different accident scenarios.
After graduation, he joined industry and worked in the semi-conductor field in Silicon Valley, for three years at Xilinx, Inc. On 2009 he returned to CCNY as a Lecturer of Mechanical Engineering Department. He has been working in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology of SUNY-Farmingdale since September 2010.
His main area of research is in energy storage in form of compressed air, Sports Air Compressed (S.A.C). He successfully received funding from State University of New York – Sustainability program to foster his research. In collaboration with Stony Brook University’s Dr. Lei Zuo, he established a fully renewable energy storage system. In this system the energy from an aerobic exercise cycle is harvested and stored for future use.
As of April 2014, he has been the Coordinator of the Automotive Programs at the Department of Automotive and Mechanical Engineering Technology. In collaboration with Long Island Employment Opportunity Center (LIEOC) he received federal Perkins Grant (May 2015) to promote education on hybrid electric and electric drive vehicles. He launched HEV lab and starting February 2016, offered workshops in this area.
Mohamad has been teaching a wide range of courses including hands-on and theory courses. Examples include Manufacturing Process (Machine Shop, elementary and advanced CNC programming), Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Combustion Engine Theory, Industrial Hygiene, Tooling for Composites, Electrical Principles, Chassis and Suspension Systems, Automatic Transmission and Computerized Engine Controls. He has over 10 peer reviewed journal and conference publications.
