Master Students

I am curerntly teaching (14) master students. Also, I am supervising one master thesis prepared by Mr. Abdullah Al-Atiyah.

 

Research Interests :   

My research interests comes in continuation to the work done at the doctoral level in 1981, namely, planning & design of Educational Facilities. Later, this has extended to look into issues of Facility Programming & Post Occupancy Evaluation. Currently, I find interest in looking at interrelationships between social factors & the built environment.
