Biography

Dr. Jihad Qaddour received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering Telecommunication in 1990 from the Wichita State University. From 1993-1998, he was an assistant professor at Mesa State College, Colorado. Dr. Qaddour received his tenured and associated professor in 1998 from Mesa State College, Colorado. He Served at Mesa State as a graduate Coordinator from 1996-1998. Dr. Qaddour joints the industry in late 1998 to gain more hands on experiences. From 1998 to 1999, he was with Sprint PCS, Switch and Radio department, as a Principal Engineer. From 1999-2001, Dr Qaddour was a manger of the Switch and Radio department, where he managed more than 10 engineers. From 2001-2002, Dr. Qaddour moved to Broadband Wireless department as a Lead engineer to select the new broadband technology for Sprint Wireless. From 2002 to present, Dr. Qaddour is teaching in School of Information Technology at Illinois State University, where he received his tenured in 2005 and associate professor in 2008.

Teaching Interests & Areas

Learning is a process of transformation, I have always seen myself as an avid learner and that is unlikely to ever change. This desire, and the preceding view of learning, sustains both my deep commitment to teaching and to becoming a better teacher. Given my diversity education, long teaching experience, and industrial experience, I have the ability of teaching a large range of classes, at both graduate and undergraduate level. I have extensive knowledge of electrical and network engineering topics, such as communications, wireless and wire networks, data communication, wire and wireless security, next generation networking, and Internet of things. The vast arsenal of my knowledge, academic and industrial experiences, I have obtained during the years, gives me the opportunity to be more effective in teaching by blending the hands on and the theory in my class room.
Three primary principles form the foundation of my teaching philosophy: (1) enthusiasm, mastery of subject, and engagement and collaborative Learning, (2) variety tools and instructional techniques, and (3) application of curriculum and treat students with respect. These concepts have emerged through classroom experience, instruction in collegiate teaching, feedback from students, reflection, and peer review.
I attempt to equip my students with strong foundations in theory and principle and assist them in translating this to implementation in their semester group project using innovative real live solution and algorithms to solve practical problems. These problem-solving opportunities present 'non-textbook' scenarios, which closely mimic the real-world experiences. I pride myself that I am FAIR, FIRM, yet FRIENDLY and learning the names of each of my students and treating them as individuals.

Research Interests & Areas

My main research interests are in the areas of wireless Systems, communication theory and emerging technologies, with an emphasis on 4G/5G, wireless security, and multi-antenna (MIMO) systems.
The promise communication technology holds in the future is enormous. Developing high data rate wireless technology with robust and seamless service and high throughput wire line technology are the main motivating factors behind both theoretical and practical research in communications today. As wireless is a relatively new technology, many basic theoretical issues concerning them are still unresolved.
Research Interest and experiences:
• Object detections
• Wireless Communications for Fifth Generation (5G) technologies.
• Performance analysis.
• Sensor networks.
• Wireless and mobile security.
• Modeling and simulation for wireless systems.
• SDN and NFV networks and security
• Blockchain security
• Machine Learning/AI
• IoT security & Technology
