Mission & Vision

 

Our vision is to become an outstanding Civil and Architectural Engineering Department in the Gulf Region and beyond.

 

Our mission is to provide a high quality Civil and Architectural Engineering education through teaching, research, and development and to provide services to the local community and the Gulf Region. This will be accomplished by:

 

A. Providing a high quality engineering education program that encompasses engineering knowledge, ethics, and values that should enable the graduate to become a professional engineer.

 

B. Offering services to the industry through cooperative programs in research, consultancy, and professional development.

 

C. Promoting communication channels for collaboration with the local and international communities to enhance public awareness and advancement of the engineering knowledge.

 

The mission of our department reflects the students’ needs and the country’s expectations from our graduates.

 

 

 

Objectives & Outcomes

1. Civil Engineering Program 2. Architectural Engineering Program

1. Civil Engineering Program


Objectives


The main objectives of the Civil Engineering Program are to produce graduates who will:

(1) be prepared for a lifelong career in the Civil Engineering practice.

(2) assume leadership and managerial roles in the private and public sectors.

(3) have a strong academic base and knowledge to pursue postgraduate studies.

To meet such objectives, the Civil Engineering Program is based on three major sub-objectives as follows:

A. Provide the required knowledge and skills to solve civil engineering problems.

B. Expand and enhance the abilities related to the responsibilities of the civil engineer towards the profession and society. 

C. Develop the abilities to stay current with new developments. 

Outcomes

While students are expected to gain the benefits of our program educational objectives a few years after graduation, outcomes are those abilities that our students are anticipated to possess upon graduation. Our Departmental Board and constituents adopted the following characteristics as our desired program outcomes:

A-1.  Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. 

A-2.  Design and conduct experiments; and understand how to analyze and interpret data. 

A-3.  Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs. 

A-4.  Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. 

A-5.  Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice. 

B-1.  Function on multidisciplinary teams. 

B-2.  Understand professional and ethical responsibility. 

B-3.  Communicate effectively. 

B-4.  Have the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context. 

C-1.  a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning. 

C-2.  a knowledge of contemporary issues.
