Professor and Chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Dr. Al-Holou teaches courses on Digital Logic, Computer Networks, Microprocessors, Computer Architecture, and Electrical Circuits. His area of expertise is in Digital Systems, Microprocessors, Fuzzy Logic, GPS, Real-time Architecture. The main thrust of his research activities at UDM can be divided into two primary areas: (1) distributed processing systems with an emphasis on automotive applications; and (2) development and delivery of computer-based instruction in electroscience curriculum. In the distributed processing systems, fault-tolerant architecture has been developed for automotive applications and modeled. Moreover, a system architecture approach to integrate CAN, MOST and wireless communication system into the car environment has been developed.

This new infrastructure can provide an entirely new type of service in addition to current services that can be delivered to cars in an efficient and secure way through wireless data connectivity over the Internet. He was selected and printed in the Who's Who in Midwest 1994 and Who's Who Among America's teachers, 5th edition, 1998.Dr. Al-Holou is a Senior IEEE member.
