Dr. Rula Allaf graduated with a BSc. in Mechanical Engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology in 1997. After two years of work as a design engineer in the Royal Scientific Society, she pursued an MSc. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Jordan and graduated in 2003. Subsequently, she worked in the University of Jordan as a lecturer for two years. Allaf returned to school on a Fulbright scholarship and earned her Ph.D. from Texas Tech University. Upon completion, she joined the German Jordan University School of Applied Technical Sciences as an Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering in September 2011.
Allaf’s teaching interests include materials and manufacturing courses, in addition to applied statistics. Her primary research interests are in the field of materials engineering. Specifically, she is interested in the study, development, fabrication, optimization and application of novel materials; porous materials, and composite materials.
Materials characterization and processing; study, development, fabrication, and application of novel materials; manufacturing process optimization.
