BIOL 113 - University Biology I Lab

Co-requisite: BIOL 112

This course encompasses the basic techniques in Biology for science majors and pre-professionals in life sciences that accompany BIOL 112.

BIOL 112 - University Biology I

Co-requisite(s): BIOL 113

Introduction to cell chemistry, metabolism, and genetics.

CHEM 111 - Principles of General Chemistry

Co-requisite: CHEM 112

This course introduces students to the fundamental principles and laws of chemistry. This course covers coordination compounds, acid-base equilibrium, chemical equilibrium, solubility and complexion equilibria, thermochemistry, gas laws, and solutions. Introduction to organic chemistry, electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry.

CHEM 112 - Principles of General Chemistry Lab

Co-requisite: CHEM 111

This course introduces chemistry lab techniques and provides hands-on experience in conducting chemical reactions that accompany the course CHEM111. It provides experience in basic techniques for the synthesis of coordination complexes and physical chemistry-based experiments.

CSCI 112 - Introduction to Computer Programming

Co-requisite(s): CSCI 113

This course introduces students to computers and programming languages and more specifically the C++ language. Besides, students learn to use computer programming as a problem-solving tool. The topics covered include basic operations, data types, input/output, selection statements, control structures, arrays, functions, and strings.

CSCI 113 - Introduction to Computer Programming Lab

Co-requisite(s): CSCI 112

This course introduces the use of computer programming as a problem-solving tool in laboratory environment. Topics in procedural programming include, simple data types, input/output, selection statements, control loops, testing, debugging, and programming environments.

ENGL 101 - Composition

Pre-requisite(s): ENGL 099 or passing English Placement Test

English 101 provides students with intensive practice in drafting, revising, and editing expository essays for an academic audience. Using logical, rhetorical, and linguistic structures in their writing, students also develop their ability to think creatively, critically, and independently. Throughout the course, students engage in reading texts, evaluating sources, using their reading to form their own opinions, preparing research papers, and employing the MLA documentation style to avoid plagiarism.

CHEM 112 - Principles of General Chemistry Lab

Co-requisite: CHEM 111

This course introduces chemistry lab techniques and provides hands-on experience in conducting chemical reactions that accompany the course CHEM111. It provides experience in basic techniques for the synthesis of coordination complexes and physical chemistry-based experiments.

MATH 113 - Calculus I

Pre-requisite(s): MATH 095/105, or appropriate score on Math Placement test

The concept of derivative (instantaneous rate of change) is an essential factor in solving real-world problems. One of the objectives of this course is to understand the conceptual foundation of derivative, and learn different techniques of computing the derivative, as well as learning how to apply it to solve real-world problems. Another objective is to understand the concept of integration and learn basic integration technique.

MEST 100 - Introduction to Islam in World Culture 

The course provides an introduction to the basic sources and historical contexts for the origins of Islam; some of the basic spiritual principles expressed in those sources; the contexts and practices that exemplify the spiritual principles; contributions Islam has made to civilization and to the political, social and cultural identity of the UAE. It will illustrate the concept of Islamic studies through a global, interdisciplinary and comparative approach and examine contemporary global and local issues that impact and are impacted by Islamic culture.

PHIL 100 - Critical Thinking and Reasoning 

This introduction to basic principles of reasoning and critical thinking enhances the learner’s abilities to evaluate various forms of reasoning in everyday life and in academic disciplines. The course explores such topics as inductive and deductive reasoning, the nature and function of definitions, fallacy types, statistic use and misuse, and the rudiments of logic.

PHYS 110 - (SCPH 110) University Physics I

Co-requisites: PHYS 111

This is a calculus-based physics course covering the fundamental principles of mechanics. It concentrates on the conservation of energy, the particle motion, the collisions, the rotation of solid bodies, simple machines and on the fluid mechanics. The focus lies on the resolution of one and twodimensional mechanical problems.

PHYS 111 - (SCPH 111) University Physics I Lab

Co-requisites: PHYS 110

This course is intended to be taken with Physics 110. It primarily includes experiments on classical mechanics. Particular emphasis is placed on laboratory technique, data collection and analysis and on reporting.
