NVE students Field trip to Dukan Dam

On 27/12/2017 a scientific field trip was held for the students in “Environmental Hydrology” course, included the visiting of  “Dukan Dam”. This field trip was offered through Komar University, Engineering College, and Environmental department. The aims of the trip were to providing opportunities for students to experience many different contexts beyond the classroom. Moreover, the trip was in the range of course activities that have been acknowledged as valuable learning experiences in the way how students learn and how field trips can help enhance learning. In addition, the trip not only contribute to internalizing relevant hydrological theory and concepts but also cognitive and effective learning can occur as a result of class visits to out-of-university settings, and learning outcomes are fundamentally influenced by the structure of the field trip, setting novelty, prior knowledge and interest of the students, the social context of the visit. During the trip, students had been achieving most of the relevant information related to the course that they have studied throughout the semester, including precipitations data (e.g. rainfall, runoff, intensity, duration …ect, any available rain gauges and their types); inflows and outflows; catchments area; losses (e.g. evaporation, infiltration) ;stream flows records; geological data (e.g. Soil type) and reservoir monitoring (e.g. water surface elevation measurement, flow measurement, method of measurement .ect). Komar University would like to thank the administration of Dukan Dam and appreciate their effort.

CVE students field trip to Shary Jwan

posted Feb 10, 2018, 11:11 AM by Sardasht Sardar


On December 13, 2017, a group of CVE students have visited Shary Jwan Hotel and SPA. The aim of the visit to Shary Jwan was to visit the water , wastewater and irrigation systems. The trip consists of two main parts , which were: First, a presentation about the wastewater treatment plant of Shary Jwan which were performed by the two senior Engineers of Zarya Company (who are responsible of the operation of Shary Jwan). The presentation was for almost 30 min. 
Second, site visit to the locations of the wastewater treatment plant, the irrigation tank, water tank and the pumping system.

The two senior Engineers from Zarya were with us and they explained all the details. Students spent around 3 hours and half inside the project from 11 : 00 AM to 2:30 PM. 

Komar University of Science and Technology would like to thank Shary Jwan managers for their effort and cooperation.

CVE and NVE field trip to Sitak area

posted Dec 11, 2017, 6:10 AM by Sardasht Sardar


A group of Civil and Environmental Engineering students visited a construction site at Sitak area (A project conducted by Suli Design Company). 

The purpose of the visit was to apply the Hazard Identification process on ground which is the main part of applying HSE program at any workplace. 

Mr. Abdulkadir (Owner of the Company) along with his staff explained all the safety procedure in detail and then the students conducted Hazard Identification by themselves.

Civil Engineering Department Meeting with Students

posted Dec 5, 2017, 10:37 PM by Sardasht Sardar

Civil Engineering department hold its annual meeting with students every year. The aim of the meeting is to discuss the current situation of the student. The meeting was started at 13:00 to 14:00. The subjects which were discussed were about 1. Graduation GPA, 1. Key courses of IP, 3. Second Chance Exam.

 In the meeting, Dr. Ako (Chairman of Civil Engineering Department) talked about the new policy changed. He insisted on the department wish to help and encourage students in an effective way. The chairman showed the departmental support for any activities which enhance the students’ performance.


The last session of the meeting was for question and answer from the students. Many questions were raised with regard to different subjects. Course pre-requisite was very concerned by the students. They asked for the modification of the flowchart. Students are worried about the future of the department, since no students were joined the department in 2016. They suggested to make discounts for the future students in order to attract new applicants. Another item which was discussed was the time duration for final exam, they are disappointed by a very tight duration in the final examination. In addition, students were questioning the procedures of attendance mechanism.

Finally, the meeting was ended by taking a photo, and the students were appreciating these kind of meetings.

On Wednesday, 22/11/2017 Civil Engineering department conducted a scientific trip to our students in the class of Water Resources to Darbandikhan dam. The students seemed surprised by such a huge hydraulic structure. 

During the visit, the students learned a lot about the dam, its appurtenant structures and its hydro power station. In addition, our students saw the impact of the earthquake on the dam and nearby buildings. 

On behalf of Komar University for Science and Technology and Civil Engineering department, Dr. Kawa Zeidan (Instructor of Water Resource Course) thanked the directorate of Darbandikhan dam for their cooperation and guidance.

On December 20th , 2016, F12- students of Civil Engineering Department/ Komar University of Science and Technology had a visit to Azady Industries Company for Galvanized and steel frames in Tanjaro Industrial Area 2. The visit aimed to see practically how structural steel sections and galvanized transmission towers are cut, bolted or welded, assembled and put in practical use.

The field trip was managed by CVE department under the supervision of Prof Dr Jalal Ahmed Saeed the instructor of Structural Systems Course which is taken by F12- CVE Students. The chief executive director of the company Engineer Dilshad Muhammed Shakir had accompanied the group of students in order to explain the manufacturing, constructing and installation processes.

Performance of CFT (Concrete Filled Steel Tube) Connection in Seismic Hazard Situation

posted Dec 12, 2016, 10:23 PM by Sardasht Sardar

On November 23rd, 2016 Mr Sardasht Sardar a coordinator of CVE/ Komar university of science and technology held a seminar titled "Performance of CFT (Concrete Filled Steel Tube) Connection in Seismic Hazard Situation".

The Seminar Aims to explain the performance of composite structure under varying seismic hazard situation. He clarified that as the application of performance-based seismic design begins to get root, new structural concepts need to  be developed. Concrete filled steel tube (CFT) can be considered as a typical construction hybrid system since CFT combines both the advantages of ductility associates with steel structure with the stiffness of concrete components. 

The typical welded steel moment frame connection used in seismically active zone failed to provide the expected ductility. Recently, bolted connections have become popular among other types of connections.  Providing robustness of the connection would be increased by replacing bolted rods with shape memory alloy (SMA) bars.

Finally, the appreciation letter upon the success of the seminar had been awarded by Dr Jalal a Vise President of Academic Affairs.
