Dr. Khaled AlMakadmeh

Program Coordinator / Associate Professor of Software Engineering


Dr. Khaled Almakadmeh is an Associate Professor of Software Engineering in the College of Engineering and Architecture at Al Yamamah University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since September 2021. He is an Associate Professor of Software Engineering in Faculty of Prince Al-Hussein Bin Abdallah II for Information Technology at the Hashemite University, Jordan since 2019 and an Assistant Professor since 2013. Dr. Almakadmeh was appointed as Department Chair, Assistant Dean, and Vice Dean for Academic Affairs participating in directing four (4) academic departments that run seven (7) undergraduate programs and (2) graduate programs. He holds a doctorate degree in Software Engineering from University of Quebec in Canada, 2013. His research is focused on software requirements engineering, software quality and software metrics. Dr. Almakadmeh has published several research publications to improve the measurement and/or the approximation of software functional size to help in building more reliable effort estimation models. Such improvement can be achieved when the research community provide software requirements engineers (i.e. software engineering industry) by standard-based models to model and specify software requirements specifications (both functional and non-functional).
