My name is Mohamed AICHOUNI.  Currently I `m a Professor at the College of Engineering, Principal Investigator of the Research Chair on Quality Improvement in the Construction Industry (QICRC) , and Vice-Dean of the Engineering College at the University of Hail (at UoH Since September 2009). I earned a PhD degree in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Salford, Manchester, Great Britain in 1992 and a Bachelor degree in Marine Engineering (Mechanical and Power Machinery) from the University of Sciences and Technology of Oran (Algeria) in 1987.

Prior to joining Hail University, I was an Assistant Professor at Hail College of Technology (2001-2009) and Associate Professor at the Faculty of Sciences and Engineering, University of Mostaganem (Algeria) (1992-2001). From 1988 to 1992 I was a demonstrator at the Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering Department Laboratories at the University of Salford in the United Kingdom. During my University career I have been the Principal Investigator and Leader of several Research Projects funded by big organizations both in business and government. Recently I co-founded the "Total Quality and Organizational Excellence Consultancy Center" to help Saudi Organizations to achieve the 2030 Saudi Vision Strategic Objectives. I am the Scientific Head and Founder of the Master Program "Quality Engineering and Management", at the College of Engineering, Hail University, (launched starting 2015).

Several PhD and MSc Theses have been discussed under my supervision, and I have been an external examiner of more than thirty Master and PhD theses in the area of thermo-fluids engineering and metrology. I published several Scientific Papers in Refereed (ISI) Journals  and international conferences.

During my academic carrier I acted at top management positions at higher education institutions. I acted as Vice Rector in charge of Post-Graduate Studies and Scientific Research, at the University of Mostaganem, Algeria, (during 1993 - 2001) and  Quality Director and General Supervisor at Hail College of Technology, Saudi Arabia, (during the period April 2005-Jan 2007).

I am reviewer of several international journals (The A.S.M.E Journal of Fluid Engineering, The European Journal of Engineering Education and the Journal of Thermoplastic Composite Materials) ; member of engineering professional societies (American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Saudi Quality Council).
