Dean's message

A key feature of our programs is the intensive, hands-on learning in our well-equipped and extensive laboratory facilities.

Naif Darwish

Welcome to the College of Engineering (CEN) at  American University of Sharjah (AUS), a place of unique diversity where people from more than 90 nationalities are working in a family spirit to provide future leadership for a healthier and more sustainable world.

Founded in 1997, CEN has since become prominent not only locally, but also regionally. Furthermore, it is steadily making its path towards global recognition as manifested by the high research impact of its engineering faculty and the high employability of its graduates. We are proud that our graduates have become employers’ first choice in the area.

The CEN at AUS offers several BS and MS programs in a variety of engineering and engineering-related disciplines. All BS programs are ABET accredited. The college has recently launched its first PhD program, in Engineering Systems Management, and several other PhD programs are under preparation. All undergraduate engineering curricula allow students to have, besides their majors, a minor specialty in vital areas such as renewable energy, environmental and water engineering, engineering management, petroleum engineering and biomedical engineering. Students gain hands-on experience through state-of-the-art hardware and software laboratories. Proud as we are of our bright, innovative and industrious students, we are even more proud of what they accomplish after graduation. Our CEN alumni, numbering around 5,800 and growing, have rewarding careers in leading private and governmental firms and beyond. Many of our most dedicated alumni made their way into outstanding leadership roles and many continue to support and serve the college in a variety of ways. We are stronger by their involvement.

Students and scholarship are at the heart of everything we do. The College of Engineering currently has around 2,800 undergraduate students and 250 graduate students. Plenty of assistantship opportunities are available for students in both undergraduate and graduate programs. An elite family of around 100 faculty–highly equipped with the needed talents, qualifications, knowledge and skills–are making the right industrious environment needed for students’ growth and advancement. At CEN, we continue to emphasize engaging more women in engineering; currently, our student body comprises around 35 percent women, with female faculty present in all engineering programs.

Being at the center of the current AUS move into a community-oriented research agenda, CEN faculty and students are heavily involved in the activities of several research institutes and research centers that will be housed, in addition to all CEN programs, in a new state-of-the-art 20,000 m2 building that will be inaugurated soon. The college has built strong collaborative ties with local, regional, and international public and private institutes through multiple win-win projects. Such cooperation has resulted in several joint projects that streamlined collaboration efforts, which ultimately resulted in several recognized industry certification programs from international partners such as Cisco and HP.
