“Automation of Quality Work in EE”
The Electrical Engineering Department organized a lecture entitled "Automation of quality work in the Department of Electrical Engineering." Where Dr. Abdel-Rahman Al-Qawasmi introduced his software program "Assessment Results Analysis", which aims to save time and effort through the use of software which designed to analyze various Assessment results. The software is intended to measure the achievement of delivering learning outcomes using performance indicators and their related Rubrics. This software is one of software series that will cover all quality issues in the department and which considered in the strategic plan of the department.
The head of Electrical Department, Dr Abdullah Almuhaisen explained the importance of such programs and theis role in simplification and documentation of quality work in the department.
The microproject exhibition was held by the electrical engineering department on 17-2-2015 in engineering library. Different microprojects were exhibited by the students. The Vice Dean Dr. Abdullah Abdulkareem was the host of the event. At the end, the students were awarded with certificates for their work .The list of the students, their projects with supervisors a name is given below.

Course Report Workshop
As part of a workshop series aimed to improve the quality of education, the Department of Electrical Engineering conducted a workshop entitled "COURSE REPORT", using real examples"
A WORKSHOP HELD ENTITLED "PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
As part of a workshop series aimed to improve the quality of education, the Department of Electrical Engineering conducted a workshop entitled "Performance Indicators", using real examples". The workshop aimed to discuss the use of performance indicators mechanisms to verify the students' performance level and the achievement of courses learning outputs. Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Qawasmi explained the necessity of choosing the appropriate teaching methods for effective delivery of educational outcomes, and analyzing the results of students' performance verification by using the appropriate performance indicators. Furthermore, there was a discussion regarding the benefits of utilizing performance indicators and measurements for the development of education strategies to fit their own outputs. Moreover, the head of the Electrical Engineering Department, Dr. Abdullah AL Mohesen, stressed the need to continue conducting such workshops because of their importance in activating the role of the teacher in the development of courses and academic programs, and in raising his teaching capabilities, and achieving the targeted educational outcomes by using effective teaching methods.
