The Control and Instrumentation Engineering (CIE) has multidisciplinary objectives in engineering education. CIE builds on a judicious integration of various scientific and engineering fields so as to achieve its global objective of accomplishing optimum productivity through an optimal use of the available resources. The CIE program aims to prepare students to use their problem-solving skills to tackle technological issues in a variety of engineering systems and to be a lifelong learner up-to-date with the latest scientific and technological advances in the field.
The main objective of the CIE department is graduating engineers who can carry out analysis, design, evaluation, and implementation of modern control and instrumentation systems for key local/regional industries.
- Program Accreditation
The undergraduate program Bachelor of Science (BS) in “Control and Instrumentation Engineering” is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (https://www.abet.org).
Program Educational Objectives
The undergraduate program of Bachelor of Science (BS) in Control and Instrumentation Engineering (Internship Option) is designed to graduate students who are expected to attain (within a few years) of graduation the following PEOs:
- Become leading professionals in their careers by demonstrating technical expertise in Control and Instrumentation Engineering and interpersonal skills.
- Continue their professional development and learning to adapt to ever-changing environments.
- Make positive contributions to their organizations, profession, and society at large.
The Control and Instrumentation Engineering (BS) students by the time of graduation will have the ability to:
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
