The Engineering Department provides students with a strong analytical basis in engineering science, reinforced with engineering fundamental courses, and connected to a hands-on practical experience. Our Engineering program is mostly focused on problem based learning and real life examples. We value individual and group learning and build our courses to facilitate this cause.
The educational objectives of the Engineering program at AUIS are for graduates to become engineers who have the ability to practice the design, service, and/or operation of engineering systems, and display the potential to take professional leadership positions that require an extensive engineering background.
Core Requirements for Engineering Majors
Because of the extended amount of courses required for the engineering degree, engineering majors have an adjusted set of Core Program requirements. Students take courses in the Core Program throughout their undergraduate career, but the majority of such courses are taken in the first few semesters.
The first goal of the Core Program is to provide a foundation of knowledge and reasoning to help students as they proceed with their major studies, their careers and the rest of their lives. Another goal is to promote broad learning and teaching that crosses the borders between disciplines, so that students with a degree from AUIS possess many of the strengths of the educated mind.
