About Prof. Taleb Mustafa Al-Rousan

He was awarded, in 2/1994, the degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST)/ Jordan with a specialization in Transportation and Materials. After graduation, He worked for 1.5 years in a local consultant company supervising the construction of a highway.

He started his graduate studies at JUST in 9/1995 during which he served as a part-time teaching assistant from 9/1995 to 1/1998. His research thesis title was “Analysis of Urban Trips with Perceived Risks in Amman" which was published in a paper journal entitled: “The Impact of Perceived Risk on Urban Commuters Route Choice.” He was awarded a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering with specialization in Transportation in 2/1998. From 10/1998 to 1/2001, he worked in Saudi Arabia in “Dar Alhandasah—Sha’er & Partners” supervising the construction of an expressway project (Almadinah - Alqasim expressway).

Selected Publications & Scientific Research

The DSR is mainly concerned with promoting and supervising research activities at HU. Scientific research is facing major challenges and constraints, which mandate creating appropriate research environment, effective management protocols, and updated legislations and regulations. As the progress in scientific research necessitates continuous development of supplies and equipment, the Deanship provides financial support to enable researchers to conduct research. The university allocates annually at least 3% of its budget to support scientific research proposals that focus on the needs and priorities of public and private sectors and contribute in solving problems of local communities.
