Dr. Alzraiee is an Assistant Professor in Construction Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, a Co-Director of Granite Heavy Civil Minor, and a CIE Faculty Fellow, at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, where he has been since 2018. He received his undergraduate degree in civil engineering (2001), a Master of Science in Construction Engineering and Management (2007), and a Ph.D. in Building Engineering (2013) from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.

Before joining Cal Poly, Dr. Alzraiee worked in the design and construction industry for 17 years in full capacity as a structural engineer, construction engineer, and project management professional. He worked on a variety of projects such as heavy civil infrastructures, high-rise buildings, and energy projects.

In 2018, Dr. Alzraiee collaborated with faculty from the construction management department to create a heavy civil minor program that combines the elements of heavy civil engineering and construction management. This minor is fully supported by generous donations from the heavy civil contractors and advocates. Dr. Alzraiee is an advocate of a teacher-scholar model, in which he undertakes a wide range of intellectual activities that stimulate teaching and learning. He teaches courses related to construction engineering, BIM, and virtual design and construction. Dr. Alzraiee’ s research interests focus on developing and leveraging advanced tools for enhancing project design, project delivery, constructability, performance, productivity, and infrastructure resilience and management. Some of the tools and approaches he uses include but not limited to BIM; VDC; As-Built BIM; LiDAR; Drones Mapping; Computer Modeling and Simulation (DES & SD), and deep learning. Many undergraduate students (freshmen to senior) at Cal Poly are involved or currently involved in his research activities. 

I have a limited number of open Research Assistant positions for Cal Poly’s undergraduate students. If you are interested in participating in innovative research, presenting in a conference, and boost your resume for a future career, then you can reach out to me by email stating your interests and attach your resume.
