Geo Technical Engineering

PhD (Geo Technical Engineering, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM), Malaysia)

Assist. Prof. Dr. Badee Alshameri, has a vast academic and employment background from being a lecturer, consultant, trainer, head of civil engineering department, engineering geologist, and teaching in private sectors, to working with government sectors as a geotechnical and geophysical engineer, teaching, and a field hydrogeologist. During his PhD journey, he combined the experience from the master study (geotechnics), degree study (earth science - geophysics), and his practical work background to come up with PhD thesis titled “Combining Seismic and Geotechnical Methods to Improve the Prediction of Physical Soil Properties”. He has done PhD in Civil Engineering (Geotechnical Engineering) from Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) in 2017; Masters in Geotechnical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), in 2011 and Bachelor's Degree in Earth Science (Geophysics and Hydrogeology), Sana’a University, Yemen in 1999.
