About faculty of Engineering

Faculty of Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering, University of Tripoli, was established in 1961 in the name of the “Faculty of Higher Technical Studies” within the program of scientific and technical cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization UNESCO. Thus, this makes it the first engineering college in Libya. In 1967, it was included to the University of Libya under the name of the Faculty of Engineering. In 1972, the Faculty of Petroleum Engineering established. However, it then was then included to the Faculty of Engineering, and elements from the Faculty of Science, University of Tripoli in 1973. In 1978, the Faculty of Nuclear and Electronic Engineering was created. In 1985 the Faculty of Petroleum Engineering was merged with the Faculty of Engineering within the framework of linking the colleges and higher institutes with engineering research centers. The Faculty of Nuclear and Electronic Engineering was then added to the Faculty of Engineering in 1988.


The Faculty of Engineering has a pioneering role in the scientific career, its role is increasing significantly in line with the technical development, especially in the fields of communication and informatics engineering. In addition, it also following new developments with their applications in the engineering sector, along with permanent and renewable energy, modern methods of construction and architecture and their environmental impacts. In response to this development, the Faculty of Engineering undertook changes in its educational curricula and academic structure by growing from a faculty with four departments since its inception to become a group of thirteen departments in order to meet the desires and requirements of the Libyan society and to achieve its goals and aspirations for progress. Accordingly, the study system in the Faculty has evolved from the academic year system to term-based system.


The expansion of the academic fields in the Faculty undoubtedly requires expansions in the facilities that accommodate the increasing numbers of students which have reached twelve thousand in recent years. This development will include halls, laboratories and other advanced capabilities and equipment, including computers and research measuring devices.


The Faculties consists of the following departments: Department of Civil Engineering - Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering - Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering - Department of Computer Engineering - Department of Architecture and Urban Planning - Department of Petroleum Engineering - Department of Chemical Engineering - Department of Geological Engineering - Department of Mining Engineering - Department of Aeronautical Engineering - Department of Naval Engineering and Ship Architecture - Department of Nuclear Engineering - Department of Materials and Mineral Engineering - Department of Engineering Management "Postgraduate studies".


These departments carry out their specialized scientific tasks in accordance with the relevant laws, regulations and decisions, which include in their entirety:


-          Academic supervision of students in terms of registration, teaching and evaluation.

-          Follow-up of research, authoring and translation programs.

-          Preparing and holding specialized scientific conferences and seminars.

-          Preparing and reviewing academic curricula to keep pace with scientific progress and the needs of society.

-          Providing specialized scientific advice to productive and service institutions in society.

-          Conducting scientific and practical studies in the field of research to solve relevant community problems.

-          Contributing to developing plans and proposals for managing the educational process in the Faculty and departments.

Assessing chloride induced deterioration in condition and safety of concrete structures in marine environments

Prediction of the present and future state of Reinforced Concrete (RC) structures suffering from chloride-induced corrosion is important if proper planning for inspection and maintenance is to be made. The majority of research studies have thus far focused on the diffusion process of chloride ions through the concrete cover, the time to corrosion initiation and on the prediction of the surface condition of the structure. However; practical evidence and theoretical analysis suggests that many structures can tolerate considerable corrosion damage without serious reduction to their load carrying capacity. Therefore, visual impression-based maintenance is not an optimum solution particularly when financial resources are limited. To support this notion, accurate models are needed to predict the deterioration rate of the structural load carrying capacity over time. This paper uses existing empirical RC deterioration models to predict the loss in the load carrying capacity of a typical RC T-beam using a reliability based approach. The approach takes into consideration the spatial variability of the deterioration parameters, thereby demonstrating the importance of its inclusion in any such analysis. arabic 13 English 97

A Novel Denoising Method Based on Discrete Linear Chirp Transform

Denoising of chirp based signals is a challenging problem in signal processing and communications. In this paper, we propose a suitable denoising algorithm based on the discrete linear chirp transform (DLCT), which provides local signal decomposition in terms of linear chirps. Analytical expression for the optimal filter response is derived. The method relies on the ability of the DLCT for providing a sparse representation to a wide class of broadband signals like chirp signals. Simulation results show the efficiency of the proposed method, especially for mono-component chirp signals.

Investigation into the Decision Making Processes within Some Operating Oil & Gas Companies

Making decisions is considered as the key role in achieving the desired goals within any organization. Moreover, making decisions in oil & gas industry is becoming a key factor for improving the work performance throughout practicing the most effective tools and techniques. The main purpose of this paper is to identify how individuals making their decisions within operating oil and gas companies. The required data for this paper were acquired by conducting several interviews with decision makers, and a questionnaire survey was also developed, besides reviewing the related literatures. Decision making processes in Libyan oil & gas operating companies were being investigated. The main findings show that over half of participants always consider safety, security and uncertainty issues when making their decisions, meaning that, it is a good indication of taking precautions when making decisions. Additionally, the majority of participants always double check their information resources, which is also a good indication of increasing the quality decisions and enhancing the work performance. Based on the findings, a number of recommendations were proposed for improving the processes of making proper and effective decisions within this business area arabic 13 English 77
