Welcome

The quality of a university’s faculty members determines the quality of its research and teaching. On the other hand, the level of students influences the level of the staff and challenges their mentality.

Al Quds University provides an opportunity in studying and gaining knowledge in the world of engineering.

The skills developed by our students come through our extensive industrial connections and provides graduates with excellent opportunities as well as enhancing their employability prospects. Whilst some students have become founders and leaders within their respective fields of study, others have gone on to play active roles within the industry. We are looking for the great innovative engineers of the future of this country and hopefully on the mankind wherever they are. We have to determine policy, goals, priorities, and timetables to ensure that we are on the right track, especially under the present challenging circumstances.

About Us

The faculty of engineering provides a first class opportunity to study both as an undergraduate or post graduate at Al Quds University.

Since our faculty of engineering’s great establishment some decades ago, we have already produced hundreds of very successful graduates.

The faculty currently consists of five major programmes; these being Electronic engineering, Computational engineering, Materials engineering, and we also offer Masters in both Electronics and Computational engineering.
It is through the introduction of these novel programmes that the faculty of engineering has been recognised for it’s unique teaching and development within the community.

Our departments provide the best in education to master both theoretical and practical knowledge of engineering. Furthermore, we place a great emphasis on our students’ acquiring competencies such as: leadership skills, critical judgement, problem solving, planning communication, planning, creative thinking, team working. With these we aim to give our students a sense of economic and ethical values; transforming them into thinking citizens and lifelong learners.
The ambition we have for every student is that they initiate their own projects, assume positions of professional responsibilities and become leaders in the industry. This can either be achieved through their employment as qualified professionals or in further postgraduate studies.
We have a number of aims and objectives we hope to fulfil over your time here at Al Quds University. The following tasks are those which are unique and give us a leading reputation among other institutions:

  • Introduce cooperative education and internship opportunities to be an integral part of the programmes we offer. Through working with our partner organization students will be able to practically apply their theoretical knowledge, which will compliment their academic studies through work experience. (On the job)
  • Initiate projects and research activities with hands on experience. Through this we will provide students with extensive opportunities. From design and innovation to in depth laboratory practical work. To achieve this, we provide students with an exceptional faculty all of whom are at the forefront of their respective fields.
  • Establish and strengthen both academic and working relationships between departments, faculties and also different sectors within the community. We have have connection with counterpart faculties in local, regional and international universities. Our engineering and information technology faculties particularly specialize in this.

Here you will find an explicit description of the curricula, our academic goals as well as educational objectives. Prospective students can see the intended learning outcomes of each of our programmes. These factors govern our curriculum and also the degree requirements.

We remain committed to striving for excellence in engineering education, research and our involvement with the community.
On behalf of the entire Faculty of Engineering, we hope you have pleasure in choosing our institution.

Degrees and specializations

The Faculty of Engineering offers three programs at the bachelor level (undergraduate programs), and one program at the master level, (graduate program).

The undergraduate programs are: Computer Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Materials Engineering. These programs lead to the award of a B.Sc. Degree in Engineering.

To achieve this degree, the student must complete 166 credit hours and 162 credit hours and 163 credit hours respectively according to the general requirements of the University and the study plan for each department.  In addition, 120 hours of field training in an approved establishment are required for graduation.  The duration of the three programs is five years.

The graduate program is the electronic and computer engineering program. It leads to the award of a master degree in electronic and computer engineering. The student must complete a minimum of 36 credit hours, the duration of the program is two years for full time RCD and three years for part time RCD, however it shouldn’t exceed four years. The program consists of two tracks: “Thesis track” and “Comprehensive exam and project track”.


Teaching Methods

A variety of teaching and training methods are in use by the Institute of Business & Economics with the objectives of achieving enhancing leadership abilities and improving analytical skills. In addition to formal lectures, students have to analyze case studies and prepare assignments using the computer. They also participate in simulation and attend applied workshops. Teaching and training at the institute are supported by programmed field in a diversified set of organization in line with the career planning of the student.

General requirements

Applicants for admission to the Faculty of Engineering must have completed the scientific stream of the General Secondary Certificate (Tawjihi) or its equivalent with an academic average of at least 80%.
