School of Engineering
It is a pleasure to welcome you to the homepage of the School of Engineering at the American University of Ras Al Khaimah. The School of Engineering sets a new standard for excellence in engineering education and research. We will achieve this ambitious goal by instilling our teaching and research with an interdisciplinary perspective and a greater understanding of the impact of technology on society. We will educate leaders and solve pressing problems. Meeting these objectives will place the school of engineering to the top ranks of engineering schools in the country and the region. The mission of the school to be a practice based institution with strong ties with the local, national and regional industry is applauded by its stake holders.
The school of engineering offers accredited programs in engineering. We offer bachelor degree programs in electronic and communication engineering, computer engineering, computer science, civil and infrastructure engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, architecture, electrical engineering, chemical engineering and petroleum engineering. Also, we offer a master degree program in engineering project management. All our programs are accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) in the UAE’s Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR). The BS in electronic and communication engineering and BS in computer engineering are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), the school is in process of achieving ABET accreditation of other programs as well. The school has rich diversity and has programs and services in place to sustain, encourage and enhance diversity. Every student coming to the school receives personalized attention and is supported through effective student support services including mentorship, peer-tutoring, advising, academic residential living and learning, internships, etc.
Faculty of the school are our real strength. They are highly accomplished in their fields with a majority having professional and industrial experience. We are committed to further enhancing the research interests of our faculty and engaging in outreach activities to provide the best response to local, national and regional needs. We strive to recruit top quality faculty that would establish an engineering school characterized by world-class research and education. These scholars have worked tirelessly to develop their own research programs and groups; to establish a strong curriculum, course offerings, and framework for student success; and to create from scratch the physical and administrative academic infrastructure necessary upon which to build the AURAK campus.
I hope you will take the time to explore and discover AURAK engineering through our Web Site. We are delighted you are sharing this remarkable journey with us.
