The Faculty of Engineering offers four-year programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical and Electronics, Industrial, and Mechanical Engineering. All of the engineering programs have been fully evaluated and accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) since 1998.
The mission of the Faculty of Engineering is to educate individuals for careers of leadership and innovation in industry, government and educational institutions, to expand the engineering knowledge base through original research, and to contribute through professional services towards a more prosperous and sustainable society. The vision of the Faculty of Engineering is to continue to employ the best faculty and to accept the best students and, thus, to become one of the leading engineering schools in the world in the areas of education, research and technology innovation. Our undergraduate programs are built on a sound foundation of freshmanyear core courses in engineering sciences including mathematics, physics, chemistry, economy, and computer programming, followed by engineering core courses mandated by the departments typically during sophomore and junior years, supplemented by specialization-option and complementary courses taken by the students during their junior and senior years. The undergraduate curricula of the engineering departments therefore comprise core courses in engineering sciences, departmental core courses, specialization-option courses, complementary courses, as well as courses in humanities and social sciences.
The departmental core courses are required courses that provide the necessary fundamental knowledge in a field of engineering, regardless of the area of future specialization. Specialization-option courses are designed to introduce the students to specialization and expertise in specific areas in their field. Students select either from among departmental courses based on their personal interests or choose one or two-option course sequences from the track options specified by their department. Option sequences are groups of three or four courses which normally commence during the second semester of the junior year and continue throughout the senior year. Complementary courses are elective courses, subject to departmental approval, tailored to complement the students’ education based on their individual professional interests. Each engineering program also requires a minimum number of courses in humanities and social sciences, and a minimum of 60 workdays of well-documented industry training, for successful completion of the undergraduate program.
