During the period from 2006 till 2009, Prof. Othman joined the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), South Africa as a Senior Lecturer at the School of Civil Engineering, Surveying & Construction. He was involved in developing and teaching up-to-date Construction Management curriculum. In addition, he acted as a member of the Faculty Higher Degree Committee and School coordinator for research development. Since he joined the British University in Egypt (BUE) in 2009, Prof. Othman was involved in developing and teaching state-of-the-art Construction Management related modules in Architectural and Civil Engineering Departments. He successfully, supervised and graduated a number of Ph.D., Masters and Honours research students in Egypt and South Africa. In September 2012 and 2013, Prof. Othman was appointed the Deputy-Director of the Centre of Sustainability and Future Studies (CSFS) and the Director of the Architectural Engineering Programme respectively. Currently, he is the Head of the Architectural Engineering Department. Prof. Othman is an active researcher in the field of Construction Management. He publishes widely in national and international conferences and academic journals. To date he published 8 books and book chapters, 31 refereed journal papers and 65 conference papers. He is the Assistant-Editor of the Journal of Construction (JoC) and a registered referee and member of advisory board of a number of international academic journals.
