Dr. Eblal Zakzok is currently a senior lecturer teaching surveying, remote sensing and GIS courses at the Department. I graduated from the University of Manchester, UK in 2007 with a thesis research focused on the application of Remote Sensing and GIS to model runoff and non-point source (NPS) pollution at the watershed scale. My teaching profile is built on experience gained at different teaching levels, universities and cultures.


  • CE 2410 Introduction to Surveying (Autumn and Spring)
  • CE 5410 Surveying Engineering (Autumn)
  • CE 5001 Introduction to Geographic Information System (GIS), (Autumn)

Research Interest:

  • Accuracy Evaluation of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) for hydrological studies: Using GIS spatial analysis to compare different set of DEMs in terms of their suitability to accurately extract important hydrological parameters based on watershed hydrologic analysis. 

  • Damage Patterns in conflict zones from Satellite Imagery. Image enhancement: 

    1. Using high and medium resolution satellite images to document damages to urban landscapes or agricultural activities.
    2. Data fusion.
