Ph.D. in Computer Science, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, 2000
Thesis title: “Integrating Information from Heterogeneous Databases Using Agents and Metadata”.
My research concentrated on developing, designing and implementing an architecture based on co-
operating software agents which access and integrate knowledge from distributed heterogeneous
databases over the network. These agents analyse the user request, identify the databases required to
answer it, fetch the information, assembles the results, and present them to the user.
M.Sc. in Distributed and Multimedia Information Systems, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, 1997.
Modules studied: Database Systems, Distributed System Programming, Human Factor,
Knowledge Representation, Network Application, Computer Network, Advanced Database,

Dissertation project: “Dynamic Behaviours of VRML in CosmoPlayer”, in which I
investigated the controls and various modes of dynamic interaction with objects in
Virtual Reality Modeling Language 2.0 browsers. It proposed new ways for users to
manipulate objects using these controls.

I have a strong background and passion to impart knowledge. In addition to teaching I developed new
courses in my relevant field. I serve on University and Department committees prepare daily lesson
plans; assist in on-going curriculum development; participate in faculty meetings and workshops;
advise students and evaluate their progress; conduct off-campus educational activities with students.
Perform related tasks as assigned.
I have always enjoyed helping other people. As a teacher, I am profoundly grateful for the opportunity
given to me to help students shape their own intellectual wealth. It is my utmost delight to see them
grow professionally and personally. I genuinely enjoy teaching every class with excitement and
enthusiasm as if I am teaching it for the first time. I make a conscious effort not only to impart
information to my students, but also to motivate them beyond the boundaries of the classroom.
“Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I will understand” (Old
Chinese proverb). As a teacher, it is my goal to enhance student learning as a Tran formative
experience. Ideally, I want students to feel personally changed by their participation in a course I am
teaching. In my current classroom, I use the above quote as a starting point for discussing my
philosophy of teaching and generating discussion about learning. Promoting an understanding that
hands-on experience and practical experience in preparing students to meet industrial needs and future
challenges is central to my philosophy of teaching. This will contribute to the industry that will benefit
Learning is the main purpose of education. It is the goal of every student and the task of every teacher
to increase knowledge and understanding in the classroom. I feel that the concept of learning should be
focused around four main areas. Independent thought is essential to the development of each student.
Group interaction is also an important part of learning. Being able to share ideas, validate them with
those of others, and teamwork are important processes. The teacher should also be prepared to lead
students in the direction they should go to reach correct conclusions and answers, without always
providing the answers themselves. Finally, the use of learned ideas and processes in new situations is
important. By using information in real projects or during their internship, students should be able to
apply what they have learned to new life.
H. T. El Khatib Page - 2 -
In order to aid students in reaching their desired learning goals, I have a clear set of objectives goals
for students. I feel that teachers should serve a number of purposes. First and foremost, they should act
as guides, pointing students in the direction they should go to find answers and solve problems by
providing them with the essential information they need to do so. They should also act as advisors or
facilitators. Students at this level need input and more assistance in deciding on courses to best reach
their career goals. Teachers should help these students in making important decisions in these areas.
Students also need to feel comfortable approaching me for discussion outside of class during the office
hours. Teachers need to make education as enjoyable and beneficial as possible for students. By
teachers acting in all of these manners, a student's education will be more complete and enjoyable than
one in which a student only sees the teacher in the classroom.

and they developed a web site for the system. I reviewed their weekly reports, gave them my feedback,
discus any problems they may face. I also arranged for one student to get his internship at IBM in
Sept 2004 – Present. Telematics Project Manager, “Telematics Smart Box”; 2.3 million Euro joined
project with IBM Engineering & Technology Services, Germany
The College of Information Technology at UAEU has since Feb 2004 conducted a telematics research
project in collaboration with IBM. The potential value of telematics applications is apparent for the UAE
where automotives play a central part of commercial and everyday life. The project has resulted in the
development of a telematics application („SmartBox‟) which is to be commercially marketed. Such
development of high-tech innovations is an important part of UAE economical development. This box is
similar to the so-called black box found in aircraft, which can capture, analyze and deliver relevant data via
a wireless network. The device, using multiple microprocessors based on Power Architecture, plus a
multitude of other sensors, can be attached to the automobile's carriage to, for example, monitor the
vehicle's speed, comparing it to the speed limit of the street.
As a telematics project manager, my responsibilities include providing plans, schedules, resource profile,
execution and tracking of software development activities, integration testing activities. My people
management activities include mentoring, couching, setting objectives, provide feedback and career
development guidance. I am also engaged with the customers for requirements‟ gathering.
The telematics system was show-cased successfully at the following conferences and exhibitions:
• 3 – 7 October 2004. GITEX Dubai 2004.
• December 06 - 09 2004. Road Safety Expo 2004 at the Dubai Police Club, Dubai.
• Jan 29 - Feb 3 2004. Environmental 2005 Exhibition and Conference, held in Abu Dhabi
• Feb 8, 2004. Seminar at American University in Dubai titled “Innovative Solutions for the UAE
Smart Box Telematics System”.
