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.

Space-Time Block Coded Spatial Modulation Aided mmWave MIMO with Hybrid Precoding

In this paper, a combination of Space-Time Block Coded Spatial Modulation with Hybrid Analog-Digital Beamforming (STBC-SM-HBF) for Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communications is proposed in order to take advantage of the merits of Spatial Modulation (SM), Space-Time Block Codes (STBC), Analog Beamforming (ABF), and digital precoding techniques while avoiding their drawbacks. This proposed system benefits from the multiplexing gain of SM, from the transmit diversity gain of STBC, and from the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) gain of the beamformer. The simulation results demonstrate that the Zero Forcing (ZF) and the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) precoded STBC-SM systems have better Bit Error Rate (BER) performance than the precoded SM systems. Moreover, the precoded SM shows a performance degradation compared to STBC-SM system. Furthermore, the BER is significantly improved by employing an array of ABF. In addition, it is demonstrated that a minimum of 2 antenna elements in the proposed scheme of STBC-SM-HBF are required to obtain better BER than that of the conventional SM and STBC-SM systems under the same spectral efficiency of 2 bits/s/Hz.

An algorithm for distributing users in Virtual zones in a 3G Cellular network

In this paper, we present an algorithm to generate and distribute Z users in Z virtual zones. In3G networks we have dynamic capacity that depends on the interference levels in the covered areaand the number of active users. This implies that the distance of the mobile user from the basestation is also an important factor because of the signal fading. An algorithm is presented basedon the queuing traffic models for 3G cell written in c++ programming language that distributesusers in different zones assuming that the cell area is virtually divided into Z zones depending onthe number of users (1) (PDF) An algorithm for distributing users in virtual zones in a 3g cellular network.

Modelling of Call Admission Control in 3G Cellular Mobile Networks

Mobile terminals allow users to access services while on the move. This unique feature has driven the rapid growth in the mobile network industry, changing it from a new technology into a massive industry within less than two decades. In this thesis, we address admission control problems in a cellular wireless environment. The admission control is responsible for deciding whether an incoming call or connection can be accepted or not, which are based on the available codes . We provide an extensive survey of the existing admission control algorithms. The issues related to and the approaches for designing admission control in third generation(3G) cellular wireless networks are discussed. An admission control method considering the quality of service(QoS) requirements in wireless is presented along with an analytical traffic model for the Universal Mobile Telecommunication Systems(UMTS). In 3G networks we have dynamic capacity that depends on the interference levels in the covered area and the number of active users. This implies that the distance of a mobile user from the base station, which is called Node B, is also an important factor because of the signal fading. The first part of this work is an algorithm written in C++ programming language that distributes users in different zones assuming that the cell area is divided into Z virtual zones, where Z depends on the number of users. In the rest of this thesis we present a simulation model for the Universal Mobile Telecommunication Systems(UMTS). For validation purposes, we have developed a much more detailed simulation of the system written in C language. The results of the mathematical model showed that, a product form equilibrium distribution holds in the case of two cells. Theses results are used to validate a simulation, and to show that the behaviour of the system is similar to that in the mathematical model. Once the product form of Jackson’s Theorem is known to hold, then it is possible to go to a more advanced stage to analyze the 3G network, and to get the performance measures, which will help in making decisions at the design stage of a network. To be more realistic, we used traffic distributions in the simulator, where a user can generate world wide web sessions(www), file transfer sessions, and Emails. These followed recommendations in the ETSI standard and further demonstrated the feasibility of the model.
