Training on Environmental aspects of Sustainability

The College of Education in Majmaah holds a training course for employees of the Water Branch in Majmaah Governorate

Within the framework of the implementation of the community plan of the College of Education in Majmaah for the year 1437-1438 AH, and based on the college's role in meeting community needs by providing community, training and advisory programs of high standards and distinguished quality, the College of Education in Majmaah, represented by the Vice Deanship for Graduate Studies and Scientific Research, held a training course for employees of the Water Branch in Majmaah Governorate entitled: Time Management), on Sunday, 12/7/1438 AH, presented by Dr. Omar Atiyat.



The College holds a training course entitled: (Groundwater Detection Methods)

Within the framework of the college's relentless endeavor to serve the local community and the surrounding areas, the Department of Physics, in conjunction with the Community Service and Continuing Education Unit, organized a training course entitled: (Methods of Detecting Groundwater) on Monday, 9/8/1437 AH in the protocol hall of the college, presented by Dr. Mahmoud bin Jaballah Abdel Mawgoud, Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics at the college, and the target group of the course were: (Agriculture Office, Water Unit, Municipal and Rural Affairs in Hotat Sudair), and the course aims to develop the skills of participants in identifying methods of detecting groundwater using satellite images and field geophysical measurements, where the course themes focused on the following:

An important introduction to groundwater, types of water-bearing rocks, and types of underground reservoirs.

Satellite and Remote Sensing Images.

Field measurements using geophysical methods (Near Surface Geophysical Measurements).

Open dialogue for discussions and interventions.

At the beginning, reference was made to the distributions of the proportions of the presence of water on the surface of the earth, then the transition to the types of water-bearing rocks and with the mention of the types of underground reservoirs in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including the main reservoirs such as the Wajid aquifer, the Suk reservoir, the Tabuk reservoir, the Minjur and Dhurma reservoir, and the Dammam underground reservoir, as well as secondary aquifers, including, for example, the Hofuf reservoir, Sakaka, and Al-Jawf reservoir.

After that, a set of slides were presented that illustrate the use of satellite images (images of drainage basins and topographic terrain with the direction of water flow, thermal data images from satellites, and photographic radar images using electromagnetic waves).

Models for the use of field measurements by geophysical methods used in the detection of groundwater were also presented, including:

Electric resistivity method: Electric resistivity method

Time domain Electromagnetic method

At the end of the course, the attendees expressed their gratitude and deep thanks to the Deanship of the College for organizing such important and useful courses, and certificates of attendance were distributed to the participants in the course from outside the college.


A scientific trip for students of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering to the water desalination plant

A scientific trip for students of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Based on the college's keenness on compatibility and integration between the theoretical and practical aspects in obtaining useful information for students, the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Majmaah University organized, students and faculty members, a scientific student visit to the collected water analysis station in Majmaah Governorate, on 5/2/1437 AH.

The students of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering were briefed on a detailed presentation of the parts of the station and the function of each part of it, and the different stages that wastewater goes through during treatment, to be discharged to the neighboring environment with the least damage to humans, organisms, plants and the environment, where he stressed that it is ensured that the water resulting from treatment contains elements, gases and solids in unconcentrated and harmless quantities, and that it is used in specific agricultural fields so as to provide consumption from groundwater reserves. To be used for drinking and other important purposes. At the end of the scientific visit, the students expressed that it has contributed to enriching their practical experience in the field of desalination plants, their components and the way they work.

The CIFAL Center at MU conducted a workshop titled "The Role of Awareness in Achieving Environmental Sustainability" in cooperation with the Environmental Awareness Initiative under the Ministry of Environment, Agriculture, and Water.

The workshop aimed to shed light on the various roles that different entities can play in achieving environmental sustainability by raising awareness about the importance of protecting the environment and minimizing the negative impacts. 

A group of experts and specialists in the field of environment and sustainable development joined the workshop which addressed many important topics related to raising awareness about the importance of protecting the environment and achieving environmental sustainability, the importance of education and awareness in achieving environmental sustainability, the role of public and private institutions and civil society in achieving these goals, and the challenges and how to overcome them.

Dr. Ayman Al-Barkati, the director of CIFAL Center, pointed out that the workshop is part of the center's contributions to raising public awareness about sustainability, highlighting that other programs are conducted by the Center on sustainable development.
