Biography

Marino Nader is an associate lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UCF and has been working on digitizing courses and exams, creating different course modalities. Nader obtained his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from McGill University. His Ph.D. was done in conjunction with the Canadian Space Agency, where he spent two years doing research and experiments. Upon completion of his Ph.D., he began working in the aerospace industry where he spent more than 10 years as a stress analyst/consultant. He enjoys working on distributed electric propulsion with his students, which entails designing, analyzing, constructing and flying unmanned aerial vehicles. Nader's accolades include the College of Engineering and Computer Science Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award in 2023 and the College of Engineering and Computer Science Excellence in Faculty Academic Advising for 2020. In addition, he is a co-PI on the NSF-supported HSI Implementation and Evaluation Project: Enhancing Student Success in Engineering Curriculum through Active e-Learning and High Impact Teaching Practices (ESSEnCe).
