As diesel engines become more popular, a fundamental knowledge of diesel technology is critical for anyone involved in the diesel engine support industry. The SAE Diesel Engine Technology e-Seminar, featuring Instructor Magdi Khair, will explain the fundamental technology of diesel engines, starting with a short but thorough introduction of the diesel combustion cycle, and continuing with aspects of engine design, emission control design, and more. An overview of developing technologies for the future with a comprehensive section on exhaust aftertreatment is also included.
The nearly thirteen hour course is divided into an introduction and eight modules. The instructor makes reference to his book, Diesel Emissions and Their Control, co-authored with W. Addy Majewski and also available from SAE International.
By participating in this course, you will be able to:
If you are involved in diesel engine support industries such as catalytic converters, lube oils, gaskets, and turbochargers, and if you are not well versed with diesel engines although they play a major role in your career's survival, this e-Seminar is for you.
This course satisfies a requirement in the Diesel Technology Certificate Program.

Dr. Magdi Khair has recently retired from Watlow Electric where he was Chief Technologist in Watlow’s Diesel Emission Space. He was previously an Institute Engineer at Southwest Research Institute. He had prior assignments at Allied Signal Automotive Catalyst, Ford New Holland, Ford Tractor Operations, Bendix Diesel Operations, and the Chrysler Corporation. He has worked with diesel engines and their emission control systems. Dr. Khair has an extensive background in diesel aftertreatment, stratified charge, and gas turbine engines since 1970. He was involved with developing emission control systems to help diesel and alternative combustion engines meet future regulated limits. He has co-authored “Diesel Emissions and Their Control”, a comprehensive textbook, and continues to present seminars in diesel engine technology, selective catalytic reduction for diesel engines, and exhaust gas recirculation.
Dr. Khair holds a B.S. in Automotive Engineering from Cairo, Egypt, a M.S. in Thermodynamics from the University of Birmingham, England, a MBA from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. in Engineering Management from Warren National University. Dr. Khair holds 20 US patents in the areas of fuel injection, turbocharging, exhaust gas recirculation and filtration, and diesel aftertreatment systems.
"The course is highly comprehensive and detailed, whereas it remains accessible for non-engineers interested in diesel engine technologies."
"Dr. Khair has an excellent teaching manner and clearly knows the subject matter. He does not gloss over the more basic topics, but still covers in-depth topics with clarity. He tailors his responses to student questions so they are applicable to all and does not make anyone feel inadequate."
