MSc University of Sheffield, UK.
BSc University of Sulaimani

Wrya Abdullah holds BSc in Building and Construction Engineering and MSc in Earthquake and Dynamic Engineering. He has taught different courses such as Mathematics, Computer Programming, Building Construction and Surveying in the Civil Engineering Department in the University of Sulaimani. He is knowledgeable in structural dynamics, dynamic analysis of the structures, structural analysis in general, reinforced concrete building analysis and design, seismic analysis and design of reinforced concrete frame buildings. When it comes to practical works, he has worked in some of the biggest projects in Sulaimani from 2010- 2013. Supervising of the complementary work for Andaziaran and Baranan quarter in Sulaimani was one of his works. Besides, he has worked as a designer for main roads and a few highways in Rania and Chamchamal. Recently, he has started researching and worked on the sustainability of the materials. He has a published paper on using recycled tire rubber in the concrete and other three papers are on their ways to be published on the same subject. The publication certificate for one of them is granted in the Engineering & Technology Journal in Baghdad. His future research interests include dynamic properties of the reinforced concrete elements, dynamic modelling and behavior of different sections and their rehabilitation and seismic analysis and design related research.
