The College of Engineering offers Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in the following majors:
- Petroleum Engineering
The profession of petroleum engineering relates to the discovery of reservoirs containing oil or natural gas, and the use of the profitable recovery method that is safe and environmentally friendly. The petroleum engineers typically use satellite and geological information to locate gas and oil deposits. Then they design and operate the gas and oil drilling equipment and facilities, and they control operations in platforms located offshore or in-land. The petroleum engineers are also involved in the design and operation of the chemical processes to refine the petroleum extracts into other products (such as gasoline, motor oil, lubricants, and plastics). The petroleum engineering profession is highly coveted in countries with untapped reserves of oil and gas.
- Civil Engineering
Civil engineering is one of the oldest and largest branches of engineering. It focuses on the well-being of the civilian population by designing, constructing, operating and maintaining private and public facilities. You need civil engineers to design buildings (including high rise building and recreational centers), factories, bridges, highways, airports, harbors, bridges, dams, tunnels, sewage treatment plants, railways, water supply systems, solid waste incinerators and other private and public facilities. A world without civil engineers would turn into chaotic and unsafe place. In fact, civil engineering could claim to have saved more lives than any other profession in the world. The field of civil engineering is subdivided into structural, transportation, geotechnical, construction, water resources and environmental engineering.
- Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering is the engineering profession that uses mechanics and energy principles to do the analysis, the design, the manufacturing, and the maintenance of mechanical systems such as tools, engines and other machines and components. Some applications of mechanical engineering include automobiles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, watercraft, manufacturing plants, industrial equipment, medical devices, and other machines and components. The profession requires an understanding of thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, kinematics, materials science and manufacturing processes.
- Electrical and Communication Engineering
Electrical engineering is the engineering profession that focuses on the study of electricity and magnetism to design and manufacture vastly different products of varying sizes and applications. It encompasses power, electronics, and signal processing. The electrical engineering term encompasses both electrical and electronic fields, although there is a difference between the two terminologies. Electrical engineering addresses problems associated with large-scale electrical systems such as power generation, transmission, and distribution. Conversely, electronic engineering relates to the study of small-scale electronic systems, including integrated circuits. The field of electronic engineering can also branch off into robotics and manufacturing control systems. Communication engineering deals with transmission and reception of all forms of information (analog and digital) across various channels, including a co-axial cable, optical fiber or free space. Electrical and communication engineers find job opportunities in various manufacturing firms, businesses, organizations, government agencies, and consulting firms.
