Dr.Elwakil joined the College of Technology at Purdue University in September 2013 as a tenure-track assistant professor in building Construction Management Department (BCM). Dr. Elwakil has made outstanding numerous contributions in discovery, student learning, leadership development, and industry engagement. Dr. Elwakil is certified Professional Engineer (PE), Certified Cost Engineer (CCE), and Certified Project management professional (PMP). Dr. Elwakil’s research on Infrastructure and heavy civil construction has made significant contributions to advancing construction processes, construction productivity, and construction simulation. His sponsored research findings have been documented in 33 papers, and technical reports. One of the most factors that has contributed to Dr. Elwakil’s success is his ability to integrate both research and teaching with industry engagement. Dr. Elwakil has integrated real projects into the curriculum and has partnered with industry for research involving field testing.
Dr. Elwakil research on road safety and infrastructure development systems has recognized by Infrastructure Canada.
Prior coming to Purdue, Dr.Elwakil was an assistant professor at California State University. Dr. Elwakil was a Post-Doc and PT faculty member at Concordia University, Canada before joining California State University. taught some construction management courses and shared in some funded research with Qatar National Research Fund and Infrastructure Canada.
As a professional in construction industry, Dr. Elwakil worked in USAID projects and with Infrastructure Canada in large scale and infrastructure projects.
