Dr. Eman Kamel holds a B.S. in electrical engineering from Cairo University, an M.S. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Cincinnati, and a Ph.D. in industrial engineering from University of Louisville. She has more than 20 years of experience in process automation at several companies, including Dow Chemical, GE Jet Engine, Philip Morris, VITOK Engineers, Evana Tools, and PLC Automation. Dr. Kamel designed and implemented PLC-based automation projects in application areas including tobacco manufacturing, chemical process control, wastewater treatment, plastic sheets processing, and irrigation water level control. She has extensive experience with Siemens and Allen-Bradley PLC programming, instrumentation, communication, and user interfaces. She also has good knowledge of and experience with other types of PLCs, including GE, TI, Modicon, Telemechanic, Furnace, and Reliance. Dr. Kamel developed customized and interactive PLC/computer control training for several applications. She has extensive computer-aided instruction experience in the areas of PLCs, computer control, and automation at several universities.

Dr. Khaled Kamel is currently a professor of computer science at Texas Southern University. Previously, he was a professor and the chair of the Department of Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Louisville Engineering School. He also worked as an instrumentation engineer at GE Jet Engine, and served as the founding dean of the College of Information Technology at United Arab Emirates University and of the College of Computer Science and Information Technology at Abu Dhabi University. Dr. Kamel received a B.S. in electrical engineering from Cairo University, a B.S. in mathematics from Ain Shams University (Egypt), an M.S. in computer science from the University of Waterloo, and a Ph.D. in electronics and communication engineering from the University of Cincinnati. He worked as principal investigator on several government and industry grants, which included the supervision of over 100 graduate research masters and doctoral students over the past 25 years. His current research interests are more interdisciplinary in nature but focused on the areas of industrial control, sensory fusion, and distributed computing.
