Professor Haitham Al-Deek, Ph.D., P.E., is a registered professional engineer in Florida since 1998, with more than 27 years experience in transportation engineering and planning.  He earned his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from the University of California at Berkeley in 1991 and 1987 respectively.  He joined UCF in 1992.  Since then he supervised six Ph.D. dissertations and twenty five M.S. theses to completion.  He is the faculty advisor of the ITE student chapter at UCF. He won the best 2009 freeway operations paper award presented to him by the US National Research Council Transportation Research Board (TRB) in Washington, D.C., January 2010.  He also won the UCF Researcher of the 1999 Year Campus Wide Award and received the Research Incentive Award in 2001.  He has won the Teaching Incentive awards at UCF three times in addition to several other teaching awards. 

Professor Al-Deek has attracted close to 7 million dollars of research funding (6 million dollars while at UCF) and over 60 research projects.  He has more than 275 publications and presentations. His primary areas of research are: Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Traffic Information, Electronic Toll Collection and Traffic Management Systems, Freight Transportation, and Clean Energy.  He has done multi-disciplinary research in many other areas such as traffic safety, driver simulators and man-in-the loop, and modeling of the impact of traffic congestion on air quality

The following are highlights of his research contributions in the three main areas with significant impact on the community:

Professor Al-Deek was:

  • The first to develop point to point travel time information system and web site for a 50-mile section of I-4, www.trafficinfo.org.  He was the original creator of the Central Florida Data Warehouse (CFDW™) concept and has obtained a trademark with this name from the US Copyright office. 
  • The first to evaluate E-PASS and SUNPASS (Electronic Toll Collection and Traffic Management Systems) before and after they were deployed in Orlando. 
  • The first to study truck movements at Florida’s 14 deep seaports. 

Professor Al-Deek is a member of TRB committees.  He is the chair of paper review subcommittees of the TRB Freeway Operations and the TRB Regional Transportation Systems Management and Operations Committees.  He also chaired the paper review subcommittee of the TRB Freight Transportation Data Committee for 7 years (2001-2007).  He is the associate editor of the Intelligent Transportation Systems Journal (J-ITS).

Professor Al-Deek  has chaired and/or served (or is currently chairing/serving) 40 committees at the university, college, and department levels at UCF.
