The Master in Infrastructure Engineering (MIEN) at AURAK aims to be a leading program in the Gulf Region, designed to equip professionals involved in the planning, design and management of various infrastructure engineering sectors and systems, with advanced knowledge, management and research skills. Aligned with AURAK’s mission, the program will accomplish its aims through an interactive, transformational student-centered learning and research experience.
The program is set up to meet the growing needs of society and economic development in the area of infrastructure engineering, through qualifying engineers to bring about innovative, efficient and effective engineering solutions in their fields. The program is designed to address related global and local social, environmental, sustainability frameworks and requirements as well as economic challenges and constraints.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
On successful completion of the Master in Infrastructure Engineering, a graduate should have:
- Acquired a specialized and wide knowledge and skills in the field of infrastructure engineering, particularly with the increasing challenges of constrained financial and natural resources as well as the challenges of maintenance and sustainability of aging infrastructure.
- Acquired a comprehensive understanding of the growing needs and demands of infrastructure projects as the population increases and economic development and growth continue to be a target locally and globally.
- The ability to adapt and apply concepts of infrastructure engineering to make decisions and produce infrastructure engineering designs and solutions, considering local, national and international frameworks.
More specifically, the program objectives have been derived from and support the mission of the American University of Ras Al Khaimah. Specifically, the MIEN program aims for students to:
- Get advanced knowledge and skills in infrastructure engineering and management that are required for the realization of the complex delivery of new, and management of existing, infrastructure;
- Have a holistic overview of infrastructure as a system of systems, viewed within the social, economic and environmental context, and the drivers for sustainable infrastructure development at the project and urban scales;
- Learn and apply methodologies of community and stakeholder engagement in project planning and execution;
- Learn to conduct economic feasibility studies and analyze and select alternatives;
- Gain project team leadership skills;
- Offer students leading-edge academic specialized courses in different sectors of infrastructure engineering; a specialization in an infrastructure area of their choice (such as environmental infrastructure, bridge engineering, and highway and transportation engineering) providing them with detailed background for the analysis and solution of specific problems associated with individual infrastructure components, and
- Equip students with analytical skills and knowledge to generate high-impact research.
Program Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete AURAK’s MIEN program will:
- Be able to acquire and apply advanced knowledge and concepts of planning skills and to formulate and solve complex problems in the field of infrastructure engineering and associated sustainability disciplines.
- Be able to identify and critically evaluate current developments and emerging trends within the different infrastructure engineering sectors and apply such advanced concepts, software and tools to analyze, plan and design infrastructure projects to meet social and economic needs.
- Be able to understand, adapt and apply infrastructure engineering relevant sciences and to collect, analyze and interpret data to make decisions and produce infrastructure engineering designs and solutions, considering local, national and international frameworks.
- Be able to apply specialized technical knowledge, independent research and communication skills, utilizing integrated infrastructure systems approaches.
- Be able to communicate effectively with peers, other engineering experts, stakeholders and community using a variety of media and means of communication.
- Be able to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and participate constructively in ethical decision-making, considering the environmental, economic and social impact of engineering solutions.
