Omar Cedillos Barraza
Assistant Professor of Practice, Mechanical Engineering

Omar Cedillos is an Assistant Professor of Practice in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UTEP. He obtained his BS in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering from Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey in 1997, his MS in Materials Science from Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez in 2010 and his PhD in Materials from Imperial College London in 2015. His research is focused in advanced processing and characterization of ceramics for extreme environments applications. This includes ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs), high-entropy ceramics and MAX phases. His interests also includes microstructure-property relationships, measurement of mechanical properties, measurement of thermal properties at high temperatures and measurement of melting points at very high temperatures (>4000 K) using laser heating techniques. Process development using spark plasma sintering (SPS), hot-pressing (HP) and pressureless sintering (PS) techniques.
