The Civil Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Mission:

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is devoted to educate exemplary Civil engineers by instituting best learning practices that: i) drive knowledge, build skills and competencies, inspire the learner to define a purpose and develop a passion to life-long learning, ii) cultivate a sense of responsibility toward the profession, society and the environment, iii) attain the ability to confront challenges through innovation and research, and iv) contribute to the advancement of the community present and future.

Objectives:

The Civil Engineering (CE) program educational objectives is set and approved by the CE program’s constituencies, i.e. Faculty, Alumni, Advisory Board, and Employers. The program has as its objectives that within a few years our graduates must:

1. Be competent to handle complex engineering tasks and provide innovative solutions through the integration of best practices.

2. Be recognized for their ability to pursue graduate studies in Civil engineering and related interdisciplinary areas as well as aptitude for lifelong learning.

3. Demonstrate leadership in their fields of expertise and service to local and international communities.

Learning Outcomes:

The graduates of the CE program will acquire each of the following characteristics and abilities, which constitute the program outcomes in conformity with the objectives. The student will:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3.  an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Degree Requirements:

The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering consists of 150 credit-hours of course work + IC3 + 30 credits transferred from Lebanese Baccalaureate or equivalent.


Career Opportunities:

The demand for civil engineers has been consistently high, in the Middle East and the Gulf region, during the last decade. Engineers have been involved primarily in large public and private development projects. The emerging reconstruction activity in Lebanon and the Gulf offers ever increasing and expanding opportunities for civil engineers for even decades to come. Graduating civil engineers are benefiting from very stimulating work experiences in the region, many of which are related to mega projects in the building and infrastructure sectors; this has resulted in a booming job market and in highly competitive salaries for civil engineers. Potential senior students are on high demand for recruitment by leading engineering companies for practical training, prior to their graduation, and eventually hired as practicing engineers.

The civil engineering graduate can generally work either in the private sector or in government agencies. Civil engineers attain a broad spectrum of skills sought by almost every profession. The fields of work applied to civil engineering are in form of design and consultation, contracting and supervision, or management and quality control. Being interrelated, it is not unusual that these fields are combined during the performance of a project. The civil engineer can work as an employee, partner, or owner in consulting design offices (local or regional) in the departments of structures, transportation and planning, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, water resources, and computer software, and in contracting firms and construction management consultant offices.

Program Description

Chairperson Ali Hammoud.
Associate Professors  Amr Ibrahim, Mohamad Kanaan, Mohamed El-Gohary, Ahmed Salem, Hassan Assoum and Louai El-Soufi 
Assistant Professors Mohamad Darwiche, Mohamad Ali,  Bilal Taher and Mohamad Hamidi
The Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Mission:

The Mechanical Engineering Department is devoted to educating exemplary mechanical engineers by instituting best learning practices that drive knowledge, build skills and competencies, inspire learners to define a purpose, develop a passion to forever learn, cultivate a sense of responsibility toward the profession, society and environment, and attain the ability to confront challenges, and in so doing contribute to the advancement of the community.

Program Educational Objectives:

The educational objectives of the ME program are determined to support career advancement of the graduates and as they pursue their career goals, the graduates will:

  1. have demonstrated competency in providing professional solutions in Mechanical Engineering through integration of analytical, experimental, and computer knowledge.
  2. have demonstrated ability to pursue graduate studies in mechanical engineering and related multidisciplinary areas.
  3. have demonstrated professional leadership in their fields of expertise and service to local and international communities

Student Outcomes:

Upon completion of the program, graduates shall have developed:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Degree Requirements:

The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering consists of 150 credit-hours of course work in addition to IC+ 30 credits transferred from Lebanese Baccalaureate or equivalent.

Career Opportunities:

Mechanical engineers attain a broad spectrum of skills sought by almost every profession. Industries, enterprises, and service providers requiring mechanical engineering skills include: power generation and distribution, building and construction, medicine and pharmacology, aerospace, automotive, food, process, security, computers and electronics, renewable energy, consulting, entertainment, water resources, sports, environmental institutions, and government. Most importantly, you can imagine something that never was and make it a reality! There is so much work to be done to guarantee the future of mankind and mechanical engineers can tap the possibilities through the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurism.
