Under the patronage of his Excellency president of the university Prof. Bassam Malkawi and cooperation between the department of Civil Engineering and the section of Mines, mining, geological and petroleum engineering at the Jordanian Engineers Association, a specialized symposium on the site poll and examining of the soil has been held in the faculty of engineering, it was in the presence of the dean of the faculty of engineering Dr. Tayseer Rawashda, chairman, staff and students of the department of civil engineering. This activity is considered as a part of the scientific activities of the department of civil engineering at the faculty of Engineering, in order to follow up the latest developments in this area, and to focus on this subject and its importance in all sectors of structural engineering projects in Jordan.HE rector pointed out the importance of cooperation between the engineers association and Al-Isra University, which will serve the engineering students and faculty staff. HE also confirmed the importance of the subject of the site poll in the structural studies, and the need to apply the engineering standards in this regard, also he pointed out the large role placed on the engineers association and the institutions concerned in this regard.
For his part Dr. Muwaffaq Al Zoubi, member of the engineers association council, confirmed on activating the cooperation frameworks between the association and the faculty of engineering at the university, which will reinforce the process of engineering work in Jordan and to open the areas in front of engineering students and recent graduates to take advantage of the engineering services provided by the engineers association. He also talked about the effective role played by the association in pursuing graduate engineers and promoting the process of the engineering work and the practice of the career in Jordan.
On the other hand, Prof. Khalid Al-Tarawneh, dean of research and graduate studies, has pointed out to the importance of the subject of the site poll, because of its constructive role in establishing the foundations of modern construction boom in the country, and to establish a sound foundation for the constructive awareness to reach to the architectural excellence we have in Jordan by the application of the instructions and regulations Building codes related to the poll site and construction work in all engineering projects.And to follow-up the implementation and to have full knowledge in the properties of each of the materials used in the construction of buildings, and the capacity to resist the pressure and the real loads acting on the foundation, in addition to the importance of a public safety in the engineering projects and to adjust the engineering practices in this area so as to mitigate the negative effects of the drop and collapses in the structures and infrastructure of the engineering projects.
At the conclusion of the symposium, HE Rector Prof. Bassam Malkawi,has thanked the participants from the engineers association in this symposium, and he has handed the shield of Al-Isra University to the delegate of the captain of engineers, Dr. Muwaffaq Al Zoubi.
