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.

Analysis and Interpretation of the petrophysical properties of Mamuniyat reservoir in El-Feel Oil Field, western part of Murzuk Basin, NC-174, Libya

Abstract The sandstone of Upper Ordovician Mamuminyat Formation represents part of stratigraphic column in Murzuq Basin, south west Libya. It is the primary reservoir target in the basin, soursed and caped by Lower Silurian Tanezzuft Shale (Sola, 2000). The Mammuniyat reservoir in Murzuq Basin is characterized by lateral and vertical variation of petrophysical properties duo to lateral change of depositional environment and the digenetic effect on the formation load various facies deposition quality. The Concession NC174 is discovered in 1997 by Lasmo Grand Maghreb Limited then On the 26th October 2003 the development drilling campaign started by MOG till thepresent time. The El feel field is the major discovery in NC174. Porosity range is 16-18% and permeability some hundreds millidarcys. The Net thickness/Gross thickness ratio varies from 20% to 95% with an average value of 70%. The sedimentary fill in the Murzuq basin is mainly Paleozoic to Mesozoic in age and reaches a thickness of about 4000 meters in the depocenter. The sedimentary sequence is punctuated by several regional unconformities corresponding to successive tectonic activity phases. In the area of NC174, the tectonic phases developed anticlines and fault bounded anticlines generally super-imposed and re-actived through time. The resulting structural style is characterized mainly by poli-history sub-vertical reverse faults with different directions (N-S, NNW-SSE and NNE-SSW), these faults bound most of the prospects apparently superimposed on subtle anticlines oriented SSWNNE along which the culminations are aligne.

Development Study of EL-Mergheb Cement Factory Production Specification from Ordinary Portland cement to High Sulfate Resistance Cement

Abstract This study is to develop the specifications of the present cement products so as to comply with the quality and quantities requirements of the local market. The subject of this thesis is to present the results of a series of laboratory trials on a number of raw material mixtures prepared to produce moderate and high sulfate resistance cement at EL- Mergheb cement factory which currently produces ordinary Portland cement. At first, six different raw material sample mixtures were prepared from marlstone,marl and iron ore. The clinker (cement ) produced from these samples was within the moderate sulfate resistance cement ( MSRC ) specifications which mainly requires the tri calcium aluminate (C3A) to be less than 8 % by weight. The trial runs on other three raw material samples made that from mixing marlstone , clay , and iron ore produced clinker specifications that were out of those for MSRC namely, C3A is greater than 8 % . This means that the addition of clay to the raw mix prevents the production of cement with MSRC specifications. This was due to the high percentage of Al2O3 in the clay . The specifications of the clinker products based on these results , MSRC was successfully produced at the factory from raw material mixtures ( marlstone, marl and iron ore ) without any clay addition . Finally three raw mix samples were prepared from marlstone, marl, iron ore, and sand and tested in the laboratory to explore the possibility of producing high sulfate resistance cement ( HSRC) which requires C3A to be less than 5 % . The results of these laboratory trials showed that when the sand in the raw mix is kept under 1.80 % , the produced clinker specifications are within those of HSRC. The permission to carry out these trials in the factory is underway. The expected economic benefits from producing both MSRC and HSRC is highly feasible. Both types will be sold in local market without any additional operating or capital costs .

Manufacturing Quality Techniques For Training and Education and Their Possible Applications Within Libyan Institutions: A Case Study

Most of organizations (both national and international) have struggled with many difficulties during the past decades due to many problems, creating a negative impact on the productivity and utilization levels of many institutions around the globe, and within Libya in particular. This paper presents the current role, relevance, trends and challenges with respect of quality management applications in educational field within Libya as a case study. It outlines an overview of the current state of art to show how in the face of growing global competitiveness quality at the levels of knower, knowing and known elements of educational system using unified field of all the laws of nature, are deriving the benefits of the quality techniques. The paper also investigates the current implementation levels of Total Quality Management (TQM) as a philosophy for improving the quality levels within some academic and training institutions within Libya. A survey methodology has been applied in this research where some findings from interesting case studies are presented to show the benefits of successful TQM implementations originally developed for manufacturing industry. The paper has also pointed to areas where senior managers within the surveyed organizations should take immediate actions to achieve effective and successful TQM implementations, thereby improving their position in this competitive marketplace. arabic 17 English 115
