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.

Experimental and Theoretical Assessment of Fuel Production from Waste Plastics

Abstract Recently more than 150 million tonnes of plastics were produced in the world. On the one hand, the consumption and production of polymers are increasing, on the other hand as landfill and incineration become more expensive and less accepted .The increasing amount of polymer wastes from them generates further mainly environmental problems. The recycling of plastic wastes is gaining increasing importance. Pyrolysis is one promising method for the treatment of mixed and contaminated plastic wastes. In this way the plastic wastes are converted into fuels or other valuable feedstock for the petrochemical industry. In present work catalytic cracking of waste plastics blend with HGO [Libyan gas oil supplied by the Zawia Oil Refinery Company boils in the range of 275-375Cº] was investigated using H-ZSM5and H-BETA. Reaction systems that were studied included high density polyethylene HDPE and polypropylene blend with HGO, reactions were carried out in one litre micro autoclave reactor under different conditions of weight, temperature and type of catalyst, The optimum conditions were 2.5% catalyst by weight of total feed stock, one hour, atmospheric presser and three temperatures selected 400Cº, 425Cº and 450Cº. The product distribution for the system [plastics and HGO] provided some good results high yield of liquid [gasoline] up to 210Cº, gases and small amount of heavy oils. Some analysis was used to qualify and quantify the product. The results from GC.MS analysis showed that the yield of gasoline (c5-c12) over H-ZSM5 higher than H-BETA. In case of 5%PP, 15%HDPE and 80%HGO over H-ZSM5 at 450Cº, 96% total conversion achieved. The result from TGA in the same case is 15% by weight. Also the theoretical calculations to quantify the produced gases after burring of waste plastic in rotary kiln reactor have been evaluated. it is found that the suitable ratio of CO:H2 to produce methanol is 7:1

Norm-Based User Selection Algorithm for Single-RF Space Modulation Techniques with Geometric Mean Decomposition Based Precoding Scheme

Joint user selection algorithm and fully digital Geometric Mean Decomposition (GMD)-based precoding scheme is considered in this paper for single Radio Frequency (RF) Space Modulation Techniques (SMTs), namely, Spatial Modulation (SM) and Space Shift Keying (SSK) schemes. The objective is to jointly perform the Frobenius norm-based user selection algorithm and design GMD-based precoded SMTs with single-RF chain in order to reduce the cost and the power consumption in Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems, and to avoid the complicated bit-allocation problem of Singular Value Decomposition (SVD)-based precoding technique. Based on these schemes, the GMD-based precoding transmission carried out in the context of a single-user SMTs can readily be extended to the Multi-user (MU) case. Simulation results demonstrate that single-RF SMTs with GMD-based precoding scheme is capable of outperforming SMTs with SVD-based precoding technique. Meanwhile, MU-SMTs with GMD-based precoding scheme provide significant performance gains over the conventional SM- and SSK-MIMO counterparts and single-user SMTs with GMD-based precoding algorithm, which increase the energy efficiency and the reachability using these schemes. Furthermore, better error performance in MU-SMTs with fully digital GMD-based precoding technique is obtained by selecting any number of users. Therefore, MU-SMTs with GMD-based precoding scheme can be effectively used in various 5G wireless networks.
