Dr. Mustafa Husain
Lecturer in Engineering and Physics

Dr. Mustafa Husain has been teaching engineering courses for over 22 years. At AUBH, he is very excited to guide engineering students to becoming proactive, problem-solving engineers.  When it comes to explaining theory, he employs demonstrations and animations to simplify complex concepts and engage all students in the learning process. When it comes to laboratory experiments, he plants confidence and excitement into students in a safe, comfortable environment. The teaching-learning process is always consolidated by real-life examples, case studies and applications.  Quite often, the value of any topic or concept to an engineer’s career is highlighted whenever applicable.

Prior to joining AUBH, Dr. Husain worked as a senior lecturer at Bahrain Training Institute (now part of Bahrain Polytechnic) where he co-established academic and professional programs the latest of which was the BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering program in collaboration with Teesside University-UK. He also established several laboratories and courses. His teaching experience includes many courses such as engineering research, electric machines and drives, analogue and digital electronics, electrical technology, electrical principals, circuit analysis, industrial control, Matlab programming and CAD. He supervised hundreds of student projects. Besides his academic duties, he was responsible for industrial internships for electrical students which was a golden opportunity to stay in touch with varied industrial sectors in Bahrain and to observe real engineering applications, case studies and operational problems. In addition, he was an active member in several committees which organized seminars, conferences and exhibitions.

In 2013, Dr. Husain received his PhD in Engineering from Osaka University-Japan. The PhD research was about developing new concepts to realize magnetic variable transmission. To achieve that, computer modeling and simulation was employed based on Maxwell’s equations and finite element method (FEM). The simulation results validated the theoretical concept which led to the construction of an equivalent of BD5000 prototype of an electromagnetic gear. The experimental results further validated the developed concept. This research work was among the early contributions the publication of which earned Dr. Husain an Award of Distinction from the Institute of Electrical Engineers Japan.

In 2003, Dr. Husain received an MSc in Advanced Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Leicester-UK. His research was modeling and simulation of induction generator validated by experiments. Besides research, he attended taught courses on electric machines, electric drives, FEM modeling and project management.

From 1994 to 1999, he studied for a bachelor’s degree in electrical and Electronic Engineering with a major in Electrical Power at Sultan Qaboos University-Oman. 

Aside from academia, Dr. Husain has seen tangible happiness in philanthropy by working with Markh Society. Since 2006, Dr. Husain founded social development and nature-protection projects. The Development Center was aimed at promoting skills and talents among Bahraini youth. Empowering Women Economically was about helping Bahraini women earn an independent income through selling homemade products.  Beautiful Village was a word and action to beautify roads and buildings. Green Markh started in 2014 and it is scheduled to end in 2024; hundreds of trees were planted and many clean up campaigns were organized.  These projects were supported by the Ministry of Social Development and the Ministry of Municipalities.
