Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
Civil Engineering Student
After almost four years of studies at AUS, I can say that civil engineering is the perfect major for any student who seeks innovation, modern science and multiple interests.
Innovation for civil engineers starts with simple ideas that become innovative design. Whenever people say that this is impossible, our innovation tells us there must be a solution. Burj Khalifa is an example of what was thought to be impossible.
Each day, new developments occur in the field of civil engineering, making this modern science a perfect start for us, as researchers, to discover new ways for improving our society.
What makes civil engineering a unique major is that it includes a wide variety of different fields from which you can choose what suits your interests. As a civil engineer, you will have the choice of specializing in structural engineering, engineering management, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, hydraulics and water resources, transportation and planning, and construc
Civil Engineering Alumnus
I was interested in sciences, especially physics, and I wanted to choose a major that matched my interests and offered me a promising career in the future. I chose civil engineering mainly because it is very broad with various subdisciplines that were of particular interest to me.
I truly enjoyed the diversity of the course offerings, the challenging environment and the interactive classroom atmosphere during my four years as an undergraduate student.
I can say with confidence that my experience at AUS prepared me well for life after graduation.
Soon after I graduated, I received several job offers from reputable companies and several graduate studies scholarships. Eventually, I joined Masdar Institute of Science and Technology’s Master of Science in Environmental Engineering program on a full-grant scholarship. For my master’s thesis, I am working on a collaborative research project on renewable energy driven desalination systems with Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
