Qualification:

Ph.D  in Electrical and Electronics Engineering/ Control System Engineering from the University of Technology, Baghdad/Iraq, 2003

M.Sc. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering/ Control System Engineering from the University of Technology, Baghdad/Iraq, 1995

 B. Sc. Degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering- the University of Technology- Baghdad, Iraq, 1989

Professional Membership:

Dr. Osama is a member in Association of Iraqi University lecturers, Baghdad/ Iraq, 2005, member of Iraqi Laser Society, Baghdad/ Iraq, 2005, member of Iraqi Engineers Union, Baghdad/ Iraq, 1989 and IEEE member in Bahrain IEEE section, 2015.

Teaching and Learning Statement:

As a faculty member, it is Dr. Osama believes that his responsibility is to provide students with the following: an environment conducive to learning, knowledge that will help them be successful in achieving their lives' goals, materials, opportunities, and feedback that will help them learn, and be motivated to be successful both in their studies and in applying their knowledge to achieve success in their life. ICT aids the instructor in providing a print-rich environment in the classroom. Educational software in computers and online educational programs are increasingly available to teachers who want to give students alternative ways to practice skills particularly in engineering and mathematics. Dr. Osama uses Poll Everywhere in his classes (online tools for teaching and learning), which is a simple web-based application that can be used in and outside the classroom. Students can text message, vote online with a smartphone, handheld device, tablet, laptop, or computer, Students can respond by following the instructions shown on the poll when it is displayed. This will improve the student skills and engage them to voice their opinion in class. However, this will help students develop listening skills by discussing their response with a peer and then responding.

Dr. Osama uses several teaching methods, such as: Lectures, Power Point Presentations, Video & Audio Materials, Discussion & Seminars (in class and in E-learning), Feedback on assignments, Tutorials, Exercise class, Labs /Workshops Assignments (classroom based practical classes), Problem-solving sessions, Laboratory teaching, Demonstration classes, Online / Distance or e-learning using MOODLE, Practical Exercises, Quizzes (in class/online) and In- Class Discussion

Written examinations can take a wide range of formats, including the following short list of common ones: Essays, true/false, matching/ Comparison, short answer, Multiple choice questions, Problems to solve (e.g. in mathematics, physics, and other engineering courses), Analyses of cases/data/texts and Practical exam (Lab). In addition, oral examinations can also have a wide range of formats, within the following Categories: Oral questioning, Demonstration of a practical skill/ set of skills, Presentation and Discussion.

Experience:

Dr. Osama has 30 years’ experience working in academic Institutions and more than 10 years’ practical experience working in industry. He took part in many practical projects in different locations and companies in Iraq. His administrative experience is as follows: he worked as a faculty member in Engineering colleges of the following universities; University of Technology, (1989-2006), University of Baghdad, (2006-2009), both are in Baghdad/Iraq and finally at Gulf University/Kingdom of Bahrain since 2009. Currently, he is the Dean of College of Engineering and acting dean of college of Computer Engineering and Sciences, Gulf University/Kingdom of Bahrain since 2016. Previouslyhe was the Director of Scientific Research and Community Services Directorate/Gulf University, 2015-2016, Acting Head of General Sciences Department/ College of Engineering/Gulf University, 2016, Head of Professional Certificate and Consultation Center (PCCC), Gulf University, 2014-2016, acting head of Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering/College of Engineering/Gulf University, Kingdom of Bahrain, 2015-2016. Finally, Dr. Osama was the head of Mechatronics Engineering Department/Al-khawarzmi Engineering College/University of Baghdad, Baghdad/Iraq (2007-2008).

 

Research Interest:

Dr. Osama’s research interests revolve around the theoretical and practical issues that include modelling and stability of automatic control systems, optimization problems, Artificial Intelligence, power electronics applications, Power generation and conversions and electrical machines control. He published 10 papers in Journals, 5 papers in conferences and one Book chapter.
