The College of Engineering was inaugurated in 1980 and includes five academic departments
that offer seven Bachelor degrees, namely Architectural Engineering, Chemical Engineering,
Civil Engineering, Communication Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering,
and Petroleum Engineering, all of which are recognized nationally by the Ministry
of Higher Education and Scientific Research, in addition, all undergraduate programs
in the College of Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission
of ABET. The Engineering departments also offer M.Sc. degrees in all the Bachelor disciplines
plus Water Resources, Material Science and Engineering, and an interdisciplinary Masters
in Engineering Management. PhD studies is also offered in all the scientific disciplines.
Students will complete their studies in the new state-of-the-art University campus
that includes world-class facilities and laboratories. These new facilities position
UAEU as a top-class provider of engineering programs. It has greatly enhanced the
teaching, learning, and research environment for students through smart classroom
technologies and curriculum material readily available through the Blackboard course
hosting portal. The College programs integrate industry-standard engineering software
for analysis and design such as LabView, Autocad, HYSYS, Fluent, ABACUS, ANSYS, and
others, and through partnerships with industry, students get to use specialized industry
packages in their designs and research projects. These tools combined with educational
pedagogy that emphasizes interactive teaching and learning, project based learning,
and communication and team skills have significantly enhanced the educational experience
for UAEU Engineering students.
The effectiveness of the College of Engineering in designing and delivering quality
academic programs has been greatly facilitated by the partnerships which have been
forged within the public and private sectors throughout the UAE. Bachelor students
conduct their internship training at over 200 companies and organizations throughout
the UAE and internationally, and industry representatives regularly provide informative
seminars to students. Both representatives from the industry and college alumni provide
valuable feedback to the Engineering departments to ensure the curricula is updated
to meet the industry’s needs and the requirements of accrediting bodies.
The UAE Centennial 2071 plan embarks on a bold vision for the future in which engineering
education and innovation are central to success. Engineering education provides a
fundamental framework in which students learn to combine science, technology, and
innovation to conceive of creative solutions that improve the quality of life. The
UAEU College of Engineering (COE) curricula are rich in experiential learning opportunities
that foster a culture of confidence, innovation, and know how needed for transformational
advancement of society. The UAEU College of Engineering is preparing the next generation
of leaders for the 21st century economy.
The College of Engineering hosts five main departments offering an array of undergraduate,
masters and PhD programs. These departments include Architectural Engineering, Chemical
and Petroleum Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering,
and Mechanical Engineering. All undergraduate programs are ABET accredited. The high
quality of our undergraduate and graduate programs is supported by a highly distinguished
faculty and staff, committed to the success of our students and advancement of knowledge.
Students joining the COE are greeted in a student centric nurturing environment and
are provided with sports, recreation, and club activities. In addition, the COE students
engage in many career development activities including, academic research, engineering
internships at high-tech companies, and design and build innovation activities.
I welcome you to the College of Engineering where you will have the opportunity to
study with some of the top professors in the world. I encourage you to work hard and
take full advantage of the educational opportunity in front of you. Remain open minded,
inquisitive, and challenge your own perceived boundaries. Together we will engineer
a better future.
