Dear current and future students, welcome to the College of Engineering at AUS.
With an enrollment of more than 2,000 students, the college is home to ABET-accredited undergraduate degree programs in chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering and mechanical engineering. Now in its third decade, the College of Engineering has become a leader in engineering education in the region, with our graduates sought after by employers in the Middle East and around the world.
At the heart of the college is an exceptional body of faculty members who are committed to the development of professional engineers and computer scientists. Our curriculum combines challenging classroom study and rich hands-on laboratory experience, along with a focus on design, team work and communication skills, preparing our graduates to meet 21st century technological challenges and improve the well-being of society.
As you progress through your studies, you will be part of a student body comprised of many nationalities, mirroring the regional and global community it serves. Through an active campus life, our students can grow both professionally and personally. Organizations such as the College of Engineering’s engineering honor societies, student chapters affiliated with international academic and technical bodies such as the IEEE, and the recently established Association of Women Engineers help our students engage with the profession. Our students also have opportunities to put their skills to the test in many regional and global engineering competitions, and have won honors at many of these events. At the university level, engineering students are also involved in numerous cultural and sporting events.
Our graduates embark on a variety of career paths, joining national and multinational companies, or even establishing their own start-ups. Many have gone on to pursue graduate studies at top universities abroad and are working in academia and research.
In its effort to continuously modernize its facilities, the college is completing a third engineering-science building, a state-of-art facility designed to support innovate teaching and research approaches. This new building will house multiple research and teaching laboratories, smart lecture halls and active learning classrooms.
We look forward to welcoming you to our AUS community.
