Command about my Ph.D. in South Korea:

My major is in International Information Technology Policy (ITPP ) which was conducted inside the department of Techno-economic Policy and Management Program under the Engineering College at Seoul National University (ranked as number one in Korea). During my study, I focused in many areas including:

  • Technology Convergence

  • Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Policy (especially from the government side)
  • The usage of technology (mainly ICT) in the development of the national economy.

The title of my dissertation was “ICT and its role in the economic development of the Middle East and North Africa region”. It consists of three main parts. The first one deals with measuring a global index for countries around the World in four main technologies: Fixed Telephone, Internet, Mobile and Broadcasting. The second part used the indexes from the first part to look at the relationship between ICT and GDP. The third one focused in the current situation of ICT in Yemen and the obstacles and the required policies to develop ICT sector into a main sector for the national economy.
