RCYCI congratulates its faculty for completing doctorate
The Royal Commission Yanbu Colleges & Institutes (RCYCI) management, faculty and staff gives best wishes to Dr. Khalid Ababtain of Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) department and Dr. Saeed Alkahtani of the Yanbu English Language Institute (YELI) on accomplishing the important milestone of completing their doctorate recently.
Dr. Khalid Ababtain did his PhD from Wayne State University in Michigan, USA. The topic of his research was “Design and optimization of rechargeable lithium ion batteries for high temperature applications”. The first of its kind, the lithium batteries developed by Dr Khalid provide ten times more capacity compared to the commercial lithium ion batteries. It can also operate over a wide range of temperature – right from room temperature to up to 120 degree Celsius.
On the other hand Dr. Saeed Alkahtani completed his PhD from the University of Tennessee, US, in Education with a specialization in English as Second Language or the ESL. He investigated “Language Learning Strategies among Saudi EFL College Students and their Relationship to Students’ Perceptual Learning Style, Gender, Academic Major and Proficiency Level” in his Ph.D. dissertation. His research interests include language learning and teaching, curriculum design and learning assessment and evaluation.
