The general engineering program at AUIS, launched in spring 2012, is designed in collaboration with the University of Colorado, Boulder, a top American university. It will meet the highest international standards and represent the most advanced thinking in contemporary undergraduate Engineering education.
AUIS' engineering science program is designed to meet the standards of the ABET (Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology), America's premier engineering education accrediting body. Its graduates will be prepared for careers in many engineering fields. Unlike conventional engineering courses, which emphasize early specialization in a branch of engineering, such as Civil, Mechanical, Chemical, etc., AUIS offers a comprehensive education in engineering fundamentals applicable to all fields.
Graduates of AUIS' General Engineering program will be well-rounded engineers, fluent in English and think rigorously and critically: they will be prime candidates for engineering positions in private sector and international firms.
AUIS general engineering students will take:
- One year of core coursework, providing students with an education foundation in writing, social science, humanities, mathematics, and sciences.
- A year of intensive math and science courses, including calculus, advanced chemistry and advanced physics.
- Two years of in-depth engineering courses, ranging from circuits to mechanics, engineering economics, and petroleum.
