Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering - Summer Training Option


The Aerospace Engineering (AE) Program is designed to cover all fundamental aspects. The curriculum includes general education courses in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Islamic and Arabic Studies, English, and Physical Education. The program also provides the students with a strong base in the main areas of Aerospace Engineering: Aerodynamics and Gas Dynamics, Flight Dynamics and Control, Aerospace Structures, Flight Propulsion and other related fields such as Aerospace Systems Maintenance, Helicopter, Avionics, Flight Traffic Control, Flight Safety, Electronic Warfare and Radar, Astronautics and current trending topics like Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Moreover, the curriculum is also augmented by several elective courses in various branches of Aerospace Engineering. A student can take two courses from Aerospace Engineering, two from other engineering/sciences/management fields, and two from General Studies subjects to broaden his knowledge of aerospace and in areas of his interest. It balances theory with application and provides practical experience through appropriate laboratory sessions. The program includes a senior project, a capstone design course, which provides the student with an opportunity to work with a design team that exposes him to unstructured problem-solving situations. Every Aerospace Engineering student is required to spend 8 weeks in summer training to make use of his knowledge and to acquire valuable experience in an industrial environment.
