Abstract: This paper examines Smart Learning Environments (SLE) as a novel educational strategy for comprehending the impact and potential applications of technologies in the classroom. This article aims to clarify the theoretical approach to SLE and develop a novel model based on it. This research paper focused on the analysis of the existing learning spaces at Tishk International University that is used by the students of Engineering Faculty. The research proposed a modification on the learning spaces to be smart learning environment. The applied modifications will be in two main aspects, first aspect by redesign the learning spaces according to the standard to guarantee the most interactions between the instructor and the students, the second aspect by implementing a smart system at each learning space to ensure safety, security and provide a comfortable environment to the students during their time at the lesson.

Keywords: Smart System, Learning Environment, Redesign Space, Engineering Faculty
