NSERC Industrial Research Chair in the Industrialization of Building Construction

Osama Mohsen


Osama graduated with a BSc from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia, in 2006; and with an MEng. from University of Alberta, in 2009. He has over seven years of professional experience in construction management, scheduling and planning, cost estimation and project control, both overseas and in Canada. He also has experience as a teaching and research assistant during his undergraduate and graduate studies. Currently he is pursuing his PhD degree in Construction Engineering and Management at the University of Alberta.

Current Research

Osama’s prospective research work focuses on improvements and optimization of operation in construction sites and manufacturing facilities. In addition, the research work involves the study and analysis of ground freezing technologies as a temporary platform to support construction operations and equipment, specifically cranes.
