Mohammed Aldasht, PhD


Dr. Aldasht is an Assistant Professor of Computer Engineering and is currently the Dean of Admission and Registration at Palestine Polytechnic University (PPU). He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Granada, Spain and joined the IT department at PPU as an Assistant Professor in 2004. In 2009 Aldasht served as the head of IT department and in 2010 he became the Dean of the College of Administrative Sciences and Informatics. In 2014 he was promoted to Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs at PPU where he served for two years ultimately landing him as the Dean of Admission and Registration at PPU in 2016.

            His research interests are in the area of parallel computing and evolutionary algorithms with a focus on using evolutionary algorithms to successfully undertake complex problems like scheduling, classification and dynamic optimization.
