Course Development @ KFUPM

Independently developed a new course entitled "Photochemistry" which is offered as an elective course. In addition, participated with the physical chemistry group in developing the physical chemistry courses in the new curriculum including the physical chemistry laboratory experiments, where new experiments were introduced, tested, written, and taught.

Laboratory Development @ KFUPM

Member of the Laser Development Group who planned and established the laser facility of KFUPM. Member of the Molecular Dynamics Group of the Laser research Laboratory.

Member of the group selected by the University to plan for the research facility of the ministry of defense. In this capacity, I was in charge of planning for the chemistry laboratories.

I have initiated the idea of the Industrial Chemistry Laboratory and supervised the implementation of the idea during the first phase. With the supervision of Dr. Al-Arfaj (Chairman of the Chemistry Department, the laboratory has now been established, experiments developed, and a new laboratory course will be added to the industrial chemistry curriculum).
