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.

Determining Reservoir Quality by Combined Stratigraphic, Petrographic and Petrophysical Methods; Sahel and Essomoud Fields, Sirt Basin

Abstract This study covers the Fields producting from the Gialo Formation a reservoir which is composed of Limestone and Dolomitic-Limestone and consists mainly of highly altered Nummulitic Packstone. This study was achieved through three parts of study including a petrographic study, petrophysical study of reservoir properties from core analysis and borehole logs. The general geological framework was obtained from petrographical study of thirty six thin sections, 129 representative core plug data and logs from 5 different wells are utilized to better understanding the petrophysical framework of the formation. The plots correlating petrophsical parameters and the frequency histograms suggested the presence of distinctive reservoir trends. These discriminations were also represented in Winland porosity- permeability cross plots resulted in clusters for different port-size that are responsible for different flow characteristics. Linear and multiple regression were used for the study of each unit. The permeability models were constructed and their reliabilies were compared by the regression coefficients for predictions in un-cored well. The combination of all data revealed the worst ranked reservoir quality corresponded to moldic and intergranular pore types, which occurred mainly in the Bioclastic Wackstone facies. The highest ranked reservoir quality corresponded to intragranular and intergranular which occurred mainly in the Nummulitic Packstone Facies.

Thermo-Mechanical Treatments of Cu-Ti Alloys

Abstract Copper and copper – base alloys are widely used for numerous applications demanding good mechanical properties , resistance to corrosion , good electrical onductivity (EC) , pleasing colour and ease of fabrication [1,2] . Among the alloys having a good combination of high strength and high thermal as well as electrical conductivity, age hardenable Cu-Be alloys are most widly used but they have the limitation of toxicity and high cost of production. Cu- Ti binary alloys are precipitation strengthened by spinodal decomposition mechanism [3-5] involving composition modulations and long range ordering in the initial stages of aging. The tensile strength value of 930N/mm2 was obtained for Cu-5.4wt%Ti alloy by the precipitation of a coherent and metastable fine precipitate of Cu4Ti (β`) and electrical conductivity of 24.5%IACS was obtained for Cu-1.5wt%Ti alloy on peak aging [6]. Experiments on cold compression followed by aging of Cu-Ti alloys have indicated that the most effective hardening of the matertial results from continuous precipitation of very fine particles within the matrix. These particles were reported to be β` -type, Cu4Ti phase. The β`-β transformation and particles coarsening within the matrix as well as a long grain boundaries were responsible for the overaging of Cu-1.5wt%Ti and Cu-3.5wt%Ti alloys It is well know that plate like particles are β – type, Cu3Ti phase. Discontinuous precipitation was found to start at the grain boundaries and expand into grain interior. At the higher aging temperature a classic widmanstätten morphology forms giving rise to a coarse microstructure comprised of α and the equilibrium phase β. Those results were confirmed by X-ray analysis, which found that a few percent of Cu3Ti, β precipitates are formed during aging at high temperature for long time for both Cu- Ti alloys (i.e. Cu-1.5wt%Ti and Cu-3.5wt%Ti).

Joint User Selection and GMD-Based Hybrid Beamforming for Generalized Spatial Modulation Aided Millimeter-wave Massive MIMO Systems

Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems with limited Radio Frequency (RF) chains play a pivotal role in the Fifth Generation (5G) of wireless networks. However, the transmitter of Generalized Spatial Modulation MIMO (GSM-MIMO) systems that characterized by a single RF chain and multiple active antennas is capable of reducing both the energy consumption and the transmitter cost. In this paper, combining GSM-MIMO systems with the fully digital Geometric Mean Decomposition (GMD)-based precoding scheme and Analog Beamforming (ABF) into Hybrid Beamforming (HBF) regime is presented for Millimeter-wave (mmWave) massive MIMO systems which is a key enabler for 5G networks. In addition, applying the norm-based user selection algorithm in GSM-MIMO scheme with GMD-based hybrid precoding is proposed, and referred to as Multiuser Steered GSM-MIMO (MUS-GSM-MIMO) scheme. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed schemes are capable of achieving considerable performance gains over the conventional GSM-MIMO schemes, while avoiding the overwhelming costs of multiple RF chains. Therefore, the proposed schemes are very efficient and highly suitable for large-scale and 5G wireless networks.
