About
Prior to beginning her appointment at Florida Poly, Dr. Sanna F. Siddiqui was a postdoctoral associate at the University of Central Florida through the P3 Pre-eminent Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

Siddiqui earned a bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering with honors distinction (Magna Cum Laude), and a master’s and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Central Florida.

During her time as a student, she held positions at Lockheed Martin Corporation and was the recipient of several honors and awards including Order of the Engineer, President’s Honor Roll, Who’s Who Among Students at the University of Central Florida, and the Prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.

Siddiqui’s doctoral dissertation work, entitled “Characterization of Anisotropic Mechanical Performance of As-Built Additively Manufactured Metals,” has received much recognition, including nomination for 2019 Outstanding Dissertation Award at the University of Central Florida, 1st and 2nd place distinction in engineering at the 2017 UCF Graduate Research Forum, and Florida Statewide Graduate Research Symposium respectively, honorable mention for best student-authored paper in the materials division at the 2017 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE), and honorable mention distinction from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for the 2017 Ford Foundation Dissertation Fellowship Program.

Siddiqui is very interested in promoting women and minorities in engineering disciplines and was an invited speaker to the 2016 Athena International Women’s Leadership Luncheon. She is a recipient of the 2016 Amelia Earhart Emerging Women Leader Fellowship and the 2015 Zonta International Amelia Earhart Fellowship, which is awarded to only 35 fellows internationally each year.
