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.
- Program Accreditation
The undergraduate program Bachelor of Science (BS) in “Aerospace 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 Aerospace Engineering is designed to graduate students who are expected to attain (within a few years) of graduation the following PEOs:
- Graduates will excel in their professional career to meet the expectations of employers of aerospace engineers.
- Qualified graduates will be able to pursue advanced Aerospace Engineering degrees in excellent world universities if they so desire.
- Graduates will assume leadership roles in their profession and in their communities.
The Aerospace 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.
