M. El Hayek received his Mechanical Engineering Diploma from Faculté Polytechnique de Mons (Belgium) in 1987. After graduation, he worked on various research projects supported by the European Union and he pursued, in parallel, graduate studies and ended up with a “Doctorat en Sciences Appliquées” from the same Faculté Polytechnique de Mons in 1997. At the same time, he received a degree of “Doctorat Européen en Sciences Appliquées” awarded by the Faculté Polytechnique de Mons (Belgium), the Technische Universiteit Delft (The Netherlands), and the Universidade Técnica de Lisboa (Portugal).
M. El Hayek joined Notre Dame University-Louaize as Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in 1998. He has been promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in October 2007 and to full Professor in October 2013. He was the Chairperson of the Department of Mechanical Engineering between October 2006 and September 2012, and is the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering since October 2012. M. Hayek is regularly teaching courses in the areas of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, computational methods, fluid power technology, etc. He is conducting research related to his areas of expertise and contributing to scholarly activities at both local and international scales. M. El Hayek is member of ASHRAE and is currently the President and “Student Activities” Chair of the Lebanese ASHRAE Chapter. He is also the Delegate of the Chapter to yearly Chapter Regional Conferences of the ASHRAE Region-at-Large since 2011.
