Dean's message

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

Richard T. Schoephoerster

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the webpage of the College of Engineering (CEN) at American University of Sharjah.  I invite you to peruse through these pages to find out about the wonderful opportunities that await you by either participating in our programs or partnering with us in education, research and development activities.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the establishment of our engineering programs, CEN has grown into one of the most important producers of top engineering and computing talent in the region. We offer students high quality BS and MS degree programs across a range of engineering and computing majors targeted to regional market needs. Our class sizes are small and we maintain an appropriate student to faculty ratio that facilitates teaching and learning. The quality of our programs and facilities allows us to attract world-class faculty (most of whom have been trained in the American university system), at the forefront of knowledge and highly enthusiastic. Our innovative and diverse student body – 35 percent of which are women – represents many nations. A key feature of our programs is the intensive, hands-on learning available through our well-equipped and extensive laboratory facilities.

We are currently developing a strategic plan for CEN that will set the vision and goals necessary to make AUS the leader in producing talent and generating innovative solutions to meet the grand challenges facing the region and global society in the decades to come. Issues to be addressed in the strategic plan include:

  • expanding and enhancing experiential learning beyond the classroom
  • pedagogical evolution towards a personalized learning model for our students
  • integrating professional practice experiences into the curriculum while also maintaining a broad, liberal education for a wide range of career opportunities
  • expansion of graduate programs, including PhD programs and professional MS programs
  • optimal utilization of the soon-to-be constructed AUS Engineering and Science Building
  • strategic investment in research and development to advance knowledge, drive regional economic development, and move the UAE towards a knowledge-based economy
  • developing an innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem through strategic partnerships with the AUSE Research and Technology Innovation Park and the Sheraa Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center

Your input on the CEN strategic plan is of great value to us, and we invite you to partner with us for your future.
