The aim is to equip future architects with a comprehensive vision integrating various aspects of the built environment: how it is planned, designed, used and appreciated by society; and to prepare students for starting a successful professional and academic career as Architects by granting them an internationally recognized Professional Degree validated by the International Union of Architects (UNESCO/UIA).
Biology deals with the origin, history, characteristics, and habits of life. Our approach to biology education is dynamic in order to keep the program current with advances being made in the field. At AUC, as in many colleges and universities, there is a growing tendency to merge what has historically diverged into widely segregated fields: botany and zoology; classical and modern molecular approach; and field and laboratory studies.
The objective of the Bachelor of Science in chemistry is to train students in both the theory and practice of the major branches of chemistry. It prepares students for careers in diverse fields such as industries (chemical, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, metal and metal finishing, cement, petrochemicals, textiles, paints); environmental monitoring and protection; quality control and quality assurance; clinical analysis; diagnostics; marketing and sales for chemicals and specialty chemicals; education; academic and industrial research.
Computer science and computer engineering are defined as the disciplines that embody the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment. It is solidly grounded in the theories and principles of computing, mathematics, science, and engineering and it applies these theories and principles to solve technical problems through the design of computing hardware, software, networks, and processes.
Construction engineering covers the basic civil engineering components such as structures, geotechnical, water resources, transportation, and environmental engineering. In addition, it covers, in detail, methods for the modeling of construction projects, numerical simulations, the evaluation of various construction strategies, and construction quality control.
The Electronics and Communications Engineering curriculum is designed to strike a balance between theoretical and laboratory experience and to impart the fundamental and practical understanding of the principles required for a successful career in electronics and communications engineering.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics develops a level of skill that will enable the student to apply his/her knowledge in industry or teaching and prepares the student for advanced study of mathematics and other fields. The life of nearly everyone is impacted by the work of actuarial experts. Actuarial experts apply mathematical models to improve financial decision-making by evaluating the financial implications of uncertain future events.
The educational objectives of the mechanical engineering program are to graduate mechanical engineers who can: practice professionally as team members or leaders in both local and global, multidisciplinary environments; advance their careers in mechanical engineering or other fields through promotions, positions of increasing responsibilities or professional certification; contribute to the welfare of the society, and respond to its needs with consideration of ethical and environmental issues; engage in advanced academic and research careers; and pursue entrepreneurial endeavors.
The petroleum engineer is concerned mainly with the exploration, drilling, reservoir and production operations. Economic and environmentally safe petroleum production and processing require the application of engineering principles in addition to a wide spectrum of knowledge including chemistry, geology, physics, and mathematics.
The undergraduate program in Physics is designed to provide students with thorough and flexible training in the fundamental aspects of classical and modern physics. Lecture material is reinforced and complemented by closely integrated laboratory work, and the varied course offerings provide several options from which students may choose according to their interests and abilities.
