He is currently full professor at ENP, where he teaches and directs research works in the field of High Voltage Engineering since 1979. He has provided in the same field, graduation and post-graduation (Magister) courses in some algerian universities (BéjaïaBatna, Jijel) and spent visits as a visiting professor at the Polytechnic School of the University of Nantes (France) and at the Warsaw University of Technology (WUT). He has given conferences at the Wroclaw University of Sciences and Technology (Poland) and at the Cardiff University (UK). He has supervised 24 magisters thesis since 1984 (ENP, U-Tizi-Ouzou, U-Béjaïa, U-Batna) and 14 doctorate theses since 2000 (ENP and U-Béjaïa). He is currently supervising several theses, some of which are in the new system (LMD).

Since 1991, he has also taught Intellectual Property and Standardization at ENP as he taught the Graduated Intellectual Property course at the Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Batna, as well as at the ENSET d’Oran (actually ENP-Oran) as part of the post-graduate training in Innovation. He is also teaching Legal Metrology at ENP since 2011 at ENP. He organized and participated in the supervision of an ENP / EPFLausanne Eco-management training course in 2002 and 2003, contributing to the introduction of environmental management tools in the training of ENP engineers.
