ECE alumnus Dr. Amr A. Adly (Ph.D., '92), the former student of Isaak Mayergoyz, has been appointed Executive Director of The Science and Technology Development Fund which is affiliated with the Egyptian Ministry of Scientific Research. He was nominated for this position by the Egyptian Prime Minister and assumed his post at the start of August.
