Personal profile


Dr Alrazi Earij is a Civil Engineering Lecturer in the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS). He is presently teaching a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate modules and supervising postgraduates.

Since obtaining his PhD, Dr Earij worked in academia, where he developed extensive teaching experience and some postgraduate formal and informal supervision. Before joining UWS, Dr Earij worked as a Civil Engineering Lecturer at West Herts College teaching vocational and apprenticeship qualifications, developing learning programmes and providing staff training on CAD. He also worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Brunel University London, where he taught a variety of foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate modules on the Civil and Mechanical Engineering Programmes, and conducted his research activities and disseminated his research findings through the authorship of several publications. Prior to commencing his postgraduate studies, Dr Earij served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Damascus University, where he taught 4th year undergraduates Bridge Engineering. He also worked as a Graduate Civil Engineer at an oversee consultative engineering office, where he diagnosed deficiencies in infrastructure, specified preventative measures, and conducted and supervised field works.

Target collaborative companies
