Professor Kovacevic holds his first degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Sarajevo (1986) and postgraduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering from University of Tuzla, Bosnia & Herzegovina (MSc 1997) and The City University, London, UK (PhD 2002). Following his appointments as Researcher at University of Sarajevo (1986), Assistant Lecturer (1989) and Lecturer (1992) at the University of Tuzla, he joined City University London (1998) as the Research Fellow in the Centre for Positive Displacement Compressor Technology. He was appointed as Senior Lecturer in Mechanical Design at The City University (2004) and was promoted to Howden Chair in Engineering Design and Compressor Technology in 2008.
Professor Kovacevic does extensive research in numerical modelling, analysis and design of positive displacement machines with focus on CFD modelling and parametric design of twin screw machines. Among many projects with industry he is currently establishing and promoting Research and Development activities of Howden Compressors Ltd, a major UK compressor manufacturer. The main educational interest of Professor Kovacevic is developing design excellence of engineering undergraduate and postgraduate students and linking these with industrial research.
As a result of all these activities professor Kovacevic authored or co-authored 4 books, 21 Journal Papers, 100 Conference Papers, more than 50 Industrial Reports, he holds rights to several patents in the area of positive displacement machines, and has received 7 awards for best papers published in various journals and conferences including IMechE, ASME and World Geothermal Congress.
