    The project objective is to design, develop and implement a new curriculum programme for master courses in Highway and Traffic Engineering in a joint effort between EU and Mediterranean Universities in line with Bologna requirements. The former will transfer EU best practices, experiences and methodologies according to the Bologna process to support the development and diffusion of an innovative experience in technical higher education in Mediterranean institutions supporting the capacity and knowledge building in highway and traffic engineering. At the completion of the master, students will learn new and advanced tools for road safety management, traffic management, and highway design. Moreover, students will increase their mathematical background, English skills and will be trained in research methodology in highway and traffic engineering. These advanced skills will contribute towards the improvement of the transportation system in the Mediterranean Area.

    Funded Project - 1.4 Million Euro
  • Development of an advanced high-efficient low-cost power-generation with minimum carbon emission from hybrid-fuel supplies
    The objective of the project is to pave the road for various sources of renewable energy (RE) and alternative fuel to be utilized in both bulk and distributed micro-generation (DMG) forms. The proposed system consists of two major subsystems, which are: an advanced gas turbine power cycle to convert thermal energy into a mechanical energy and a high speed generator that would be driven by the advanced turbine for electric power generation.
    In this system, solar thermal energy will be utilized to heat the air delivered by the compressor in a specially designed heat exchanger before entering the combustion chamber. The combustion chamber will be provided with dual fuel burner, to burn both liquid and gas fuels. Several different sources of thermal energy would be utilized to operate AHET including biogas (BG), natural gas (NG), bio-diesel (BD) in addition to solar thermal energy. Due to the high efficiency of AHET, the emission is reduced significantly even if fuelled with NG. However, substantial reduction will be achieved through use of BG BD in conjunction with solar energy. To maximize the system efficiency, the exhaust gas leaving the heat exchanger (in the case of large size systems) can be utilized to preheat the inlet air for industrial thermal applications such water desalination. Further reduction action of fuel consumption and improvement of thermal efficiency would also be achieved by utilizing a small portion of the electric energy generated to produce hydrogen by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen by the electrolysis process. Part of the produced hydrogen will be mixed with fuel in the combustion chamber to boost the combustion process while the remaining hydrogen gas can be stored for later use.
