Dr. Mohareb received a Bachelor in Civil Engineering from Cairo University, Egypt in 1986, an MSc in Civil Engineering from Texas Tech University, USA, and a PhD in Structural Engineering from the University of Alberta in 1995.

In 1995-1999, he worked as a consultant in Centre for Engineering Research and Colt Engineering, Edmonton, Canada where he conducted research and design for oil, gas, petrochemical and pipeline companies in Canada, the USA, and Norway. He joined the University of Ottawa as an assistant professor in 2000, was promoted to the rank of associate professor in 2004, and became full professor in 2010.

Dr. Mohareb has co-authored a book and authored/co-authored over 50 refereed publications in the areas of buckling of steel pipelines, lateral torsional buckling of steel structures, and finite element analysis.

He is a member of Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) since 2006, Association of Professional Engineers Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA) since 1996, the Honor Society of Tau Beta Pi (1989), the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi (1990), American Society of Civil Engineers (since 1999), Structural Engineers Institute (since 2000), Canadian Society of Civil Engineering (since 2003), and PEO Academic Requirement Committee since 2010.

He is presently serving as associate editor of the Open Construction and Building Technology Journal and served as Member of the Scientific Committee of International Conference on Advances in Civil Engineering (ACE) 2010, Karadeniz Technical University, Turkey. He was listed in Who's Who in computational Science and Engineering, 2004-2005.

Dr. Mohareb acted as a peer reviewer for several journals including the ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics, Thin Walled Structures, International Journal for Pressure Vessels and Piping, Structural Engineering and Mechanics, International Journal of Mechanical Sciences, Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering, Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology, and served as peer reviewer for grant applications including NSERC discovery, NSERC CRD, CANMET MTL, and Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF).
