Meet the Faculty


Sabah Abro

Department Chair
Director of MSEQ

Sabah Abro was born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq until his family emigrated to the United States during the late 1960s. His pursuit of education took him on a global path, earning a bachelor's degree from Baghdad University, followed by a master's degree from the United Nations institute in the Middle East, another master's degree in Britain, and ultimately a PhD in Belgium. Along this academic journey, Abro not only acquired a wealth of knowledge but also became proficient in four languages: Arabic, English, French, and Chaldean.

His teaching journey traversed the Middle East, with roles in Iraq and Jordan, and included guest lecturer positions in Kuwait and Morocco. He assumed various roles, such as faculty member, regional consultant, department chair, and acting dean. Notably, he contributed to a groundbreaking curriculum in manufacturing engineering education as the Math Program Director at Focus: HOPE before joining Lawrence Tech University (LTU) in 1997. At LTU, he transitioned from adjunct faculty to a full-time role in 2000 and now serves as the director of the Engineering Technology master's program, mentors doctoral students, and actively participates in Doctorate Committees within the College of Engineering.
