Getting a lot of help from MSOE

At our Fluid Power Technology Conference next week, we will be depending heavily on the expertise provided by the fluid power experts at MSOE who will be doing presentations from the FPTC Stage.

Thomas Wanke is the Director of the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Fluid Power Industrial Consortium and Industry Relations. He’s one of the industry’s most popular trainers, with more than three decades of fluid power courses to his credit.

Tom is a good friend of Fluid Power World and he was very instrumental in brining the Fluid Power Technology Conference to MSOE.  I am sure that our audience is looking forward to hearing Tom present at our event.
Tim is the Director of the Fluid Power Institute at the MSOE University. He has more than 25 years’ experience in industrial and mobile hydraulic systems. Tim has a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology and a Master’s degree in Engineering from MSOE, and is currently a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Marquette University. He is also a Lecturer in MSOE’s Mechanical Engineering Department.
While Tim was an undergraduate student at MSOE, he worked at FPI for Tom Wanke. After graduating from MSOE with his BS MET in 1990, Tim worked as a Product Engineer in the Valve Division for Parker Hannifin. He then spent several years in the mining equipment industry as a Hydraulic Systems Engineer at P&H Mining Equipment and also at Bucyrus International. Tim rejoined FPI in 2006 and manages the department operations. FPI provides fluid power engineering support for mobile and industrial fluid power systems on military and commercial applications. Tim’s work focuses on improving the reliability and efficiency of these systems. Additionally, Tim has been an active member of the US Air Force Reserves since 1986.

Medhat Khalil, Ph.D. is Director of Professional Education & Research Development at the Applied Technology Center, Milwaukee School of Engineering, Milwaukee, WI, USA. Medhat has consistently been working on his academic development through the years, starting from Bachelor’s and Master’s
Degrees in Mechanical Engineering in Cairo Egypt and proceeding with his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and Post-Doctoral Industrial Research Fellowship at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He has been certified and is a member of many institutions such as: Certified Fluid Power Hydraulic Specialist (CFPHS) by the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS); Certified Fluid Power Accredited Instructor (CFPAI) by the International Fluid Power Society (IFPS); Member of Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP); Listed Fluid Power Consultant by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA); and Listed Professional Instructor by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Medhat has balanced academic and industrial experience. Medhat has a vast working experience in the field of Mechanical Engineering and more specifically hydraulics, having developed and taught fluid power system training courses for industry professionals, being quite aware of the technological developments in the field of fluid power and motion control and the production program of leading fluid power companies. In addition, Medhat has worked for several world-wide recognized industrial organizations such as Rexroth in Egypt and CAE in Canada. Medhat had designed several hydraulic systems and developed several analytical and educational software. Medhat also has considerable experience in modeling and simulation of dynamic systems using Matlab Simulink.
