The department is home to almost 500 students where Dr Jassim serves as both an academic and an administrative leader. Dr Jassim is in charge of maintaining the high quality teaching standards set by the Texas International Education Consortium (TIEC) for PMU in addition to other teaching and student advising duties.

Dr Jassim has an extensive background in conducting classes and laboratories for undergraduate and graduate university students in areas of Fluid Mechanics, Multiphase Heat and Mass Transfer, Combustion, and Energy Systems. Dr. Jassim has designed and delivered engineering courses at the University of North Dakota (UND)-USA, Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador (MUN)-Canada and at PMU. Recently, Dr Jassim has been involved in developing courses and documentations required to establish Master of Mechanical Engineering programs at PMU. Furthermore, Dr Jassim has been often exposed to a multicultural environment as a student, production supervisor, professional engineer and university professor, and considers this multiculturalism a fundamental aspect of his job, and enjoys working with people of different backgrounds.

Dr Jassim has more than 20 years of experience in research and development in the field of Thermo-Fluid and Sustainable Energy Systems. His research is concerned with CFD simulation of complex engineering systems, real gas behavior in supersonic and hypersonic regions, energy efficient processes, multi-phase heat and mass transfer, natural gas flow, hydrate deposition, HVAC, and fossil fuel combustion. Dr Jassim has particular expertise in arranging and giving seminars in addition to writing papers at both local and international journals and conferences. So far, Dr Jassim has published 2 books, one chapter, and more than 30 articles in well-recognized journals and conference proceedings.
