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.

Different Approaches to Classify Network Routing Protocols

In this paper a brief introduction to the concept of quality of service has been given. However, it mainly focuses on the classification of routing algorithms based on a number of different criteria like: protocols, structure, technologies in use, etc. And it concludes with a presentation of a common problem facing routing protocols, namely routing loops, and explained the known solutions to that problem. arabic 6 English 52

A Pilot study on Open Educational Resources and experimental carried out by higher educational in Libya

Open Educational Resources (OER) is simple but powerful educational materials made freely and legally available on the Internet for anyone to reuse, revise, and redistribute. These materials have the potential to give people everywhere equal access to our collective knowledge and provide many more people around the world with access to quality education by making lectures, books and curricula widely available on the Internet. In this paper a brief history of OER is stated and then Creative Commons Licenses are explained and finally the steps to implement OER in Libya are outlined

This paper identifies the most affecting factors that enhance the quality of the decision making process within some Libyan oil and gas companies. Based on the developed questionnaire along with the literature review, the analysis showed that it is a challenge to processing the proper procedure for making decisions. However, most decision makers are found to be focusing on using simple tools for making their decisions, whereas, lacking of an effective communication network during making decisions are considered with a negative impact on making the proper decisions within most surveyed companies. Furthermore, it was found that, the procedures for making decisions within most surveyed companies could be considered as the most crucial for improving the quality of the decision making processes, followed by the used tools and techniques, whereas, communications as a factor influencing the processes of making decisions is found to be at the lowest level throughout the entire decision making processes. arabic 15 English 98
