Recently, Kamal Mohamed was presented with the 2024 Vice Admiral Melvin G. Williams Legacy Award by Tracy Nixon, the workforce, culture, diversity, equity, and inclusion officer at General Dynamics.

Kamal is a highly accomplished professional and leader in the field, with over 13 years of experience. He has worked in various roles at General Dynamics and has a proven track record of success.

Kamal has a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from the University of New Hampshire and a post-graduate degree in systems engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He combines technical expertise with systematic thinking to tackle complex challenges.

Kamal has held several STEM roles throughout his career, including system engineer, operation supervisor, and project manager. He was recognized for his work across projects and received the Modern Day Technology Award from BEYA in 2012.

General Dynamics Electric Boat builds nuclear-powered submarines, and Kamal was the ship manager for the pre-commissioned submarine Iowa. The role of a ship manager is critical, visible, and challenging, making it fitting that he is recognized for his valued contributions and leadership.

Kamal epitomizes the award’s fundamental tenets of leadership, mentoring, and performance excellence.

In his words, “It is a privilege to be recognized for my achievements. Breaking barriers, grit, and making an impact through our contribution will last through future generations of STEM students, submarine builders, and mariners. My achievements and legacy would not have been possible without my mentors, champions, sponsors, family, and friends who helped me throughout my journey. Thank you for the support.”
