I have completed my bachelor’s degree from King Saud University. During
my undergraduate education, I have taken sound knowledge about estimating
construction costs, industry and environment, management of engineering
projects, wastewater and water treatment, geotechnical material, reinforced
concrete and numerical method. These undergraduate courses have built my
foundation and remained useful during my jobs such as Civil engineer at MOE
agency of building as well as working as site engineer and quality control at
IKK company in Saudi Arabia. These jobs help me to become a well-trained
construction engineer who also has in-depth understanding and practical
knowledge about surveying and billing estimation using computer applications.
These jobs also develop further motivation to advance my knowledge and skills. I
have completed various training courses on repair of rein farced concrete
structure, international contracts, computer and engineering information
sources, structural engineering projects design works, engineering cost
estimation program, and engineering success. These training courses have built
both theoretical and practical knowledge about construction and helped me to
determine what is suitable graduate program for further study.
In 2018, I have completed my diploma in total quality management and graduate degree in Master of project management in construction at Salford university. During this diploma and master’s degree program I have developed research skills and interest in construction therefore I have completed a research proposal on green construction with the purpose to start my PhD at Cranfield University. Now I am fully involved to learn advance applications and use of green construction as well as how to produce clean energy.
At present, I am fully involved to research
how countries and region such as the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand,
European Union, and the United States of America formulated laws to promote
green building with the purpose to save operational costs and energy resources.
On the other hand, my homeland (Saudi Arabia) which is although advancing in
construction due to meeting the need of urban living, religious tourism, and
increasing population but these construction is far away from sustainability
and green construction practices which resulted to harm natural resources and
environment. The massive infrastructure changes, increasing urbanization, rapid
modernization, and focus of people to move from rural to urban livings have
been brought many environmental challenges in Saudi Arabia and my research
interests how to handle effectively these challenges. As I am
having experience of Civil and site engineer therefore I believe that advance
knowledge and skills about green construction and sustainability practices will
prove useful when I will serve as a trained engineer and research scholar in my
country (Saudi Arabia). My current activities and focus are all about reading
and understanding quality research studies therefore I have found opportunities
to learn advance computer applications and construction techniques which are
given by the industry leader who having the wealth of both theoretical and
I have dealt with several clients during my work at MOE agency of building as well as working as site engineer and quality control at IKK. During these jobs, I have successfully completed various responsibilities such prepare report on equipment and material specifications, design drawings and resolving issues related to design, coordinating and collaboration in work schedules, resolving issues of field engineering, evaluating project controls, estimating construction costs, writing of construction progress report, dealing with contractors and suppliers, and using advance technical developments.
