Dr. Elie OTAYEK, PhD, MIEAust CPEng, P.E, MASCE is an assistant professor, and was acting as Head of
the Civil Engineering Department at USEK University (2014-2018); Dr. Otayek has more than 20 years of
experience in designing and managing construction projects in Lebanon, Canada and Golf Region.
His research work includes Bridge Management Systems and 3D-CAD Modeling. He has developed a bridge
management system via an Artificial Intelligent Environment that integrates BrIM technology to generate
efficient method to select an appropriate bridge type at conceptual design phase and forecast associated initial
cost, maintenance cost, constructability and other relevant parameters.
Dr. Otayek has been actively involved in several academic and professional organizations. He is a member of
the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) acting as faculty advisor for the ASCE-USEK Student Chapter
at USEK University; he is a registered professional Engineer with OIQ syndicate (Quebec, Canada) since 2008
as well he is a member at Engineers Australia (Chartered Status); and he affiliates to the OEA (order of
Engineers and Architects - Lebanon).
Dr. Otayek has served in many academic committees, he has acted as chair for many conference sessions
(LAAS, LAU CIB, etc…), and he was deeply involved with the ABET Accreditation process for the Civil
Engineering Department during their technical visit to the department after establishing the curriculum of the
Civil Engineering programs (BE & Master). He has an active member in the Hit4Med project by teaching many
related courses and by establishing the related Master program in Transportation and supervising many Master
students (Students are actually pursuing PhD program in Europe).
