Mohammed El-Bathy joined Lawrence Technological University at 2000. He taught undergraduate and graduate courses including: Computer Science 2, Computer Architecture and Assembly Language, Comparative Programming Languages, Operating Systems, Introduction to Distributed Computing, Advanced Distributed Computing and Distributed Database Systems. Prior to teaching at LTU, El-Bathy was an Adjunct Professor at Wayne State University where he has taught Operating Systems, Comparative Programming Languages and Data Structures, and Algorithms. El-Bathy's area of research is distributed computing and computer networking. He is interested in applying the concepts and techniques of distributed computing, information extraction, intelligent information retrieval, and data warehousing using service-oriented architecture (SOA) to develop intelligent web applications. El-Bathy received a B.Sc in business administration from Cairo University in Egypt and a post-bachelor's degree and M.S. in computer science from Wayne State University. He also has completed all computer science courses and passed the proficiency exam of the Ph.D. program at Wayne State University. In addition to his academic experience, El-Bathy has more than 25 years of experience in industry, working in areas including software development, database design, and computer networking design, implementing projects across many technology platforms, DBMS, network topologies, and programming languages. As a practitioner of information technology, he reached the pinnacle of his career and held a Vice President position of the Department of Information Services for a $1.6 billion financial institution, providing leadership in applying and aligning information technology with business strategies, goals, and needs. While the study of and research in computer science is his prime objective, his interests in literature, music, travel, and nature help him to maintain a sense of perspective in life. He likes to write and has published some articles and is a co-author of a published book. He believes that each of us must give something back to society, so he contributes to local organizations that focus on the environment of his hometown.

Abstract

Open Source Software Engineering Theory: Intelligent Educational Tool Increases Placement of Graduates in STEM Related CareersAbstractThe development of World Wide Web (WWW) a little more than a decade ago has caused aninformation explosion that needs an Intelligent Web (IW) for users to easily control theirinformation and commercial needs. Therefore, engineering schools have offered a variety of IWcourses to cultivate hands-on experience and training for industrial systems. In this study, OpenSource Software Engineering Theory (OSSET) project course has been designed to help studentslearn theoretical concepts of IW, practice advanced technical skills, and discover knowledge tosolve problem. Undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)students involved in the development of innovative approaches and techniques. They are able tohelp solve the problems of disease misdiagnoses that medical and healthcare professionalsexperience. They co-authored and presented numerous research papers introducing the solutionin different conferences. This study provides the solution in the form of an Intelligent OSSETusing Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to decrease disease misdiagnosis in healthcare.The proposed project course has become a way to establish an “Intelligent Open Source SoftwareEngineering for Healthcare IT" center in our department. Results show that this new coursestrengthens the capacity and quality of STEM undergraduate degree programs and the number ofoverall graduate student enrollment. It promotes a vigorous STEM academic environment andincreases the number of students entering STEM careers. It expands the breadth of faculty andstudent involvement in research and development. It enhances and leverages the activeengagement of faculty technology transfer and translational research. It improves and developsnew relationships between educational institutions and research funding entities to broaden theuniversity's research portfolio and increase funding. The proposed project course is a softwareengineering research methodology, an educational tool, and a teaching technique is needed infuture medical and health IT fields.
