About this program

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

Accredited by the Ministry of Education's Higher Education Affairs Division in the United Arab Emirates and the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET in the United States, our 140-credit civil engineering degree course will help you develop a wide set of skills in engineering, mathematics, humanities and social sciences, basic sciences and design.

Consistent with the demands of international and national accreditation requirements and targeting specific industry needs of the region, this undergraduate degree in civil engineering takes about four years to complete.

By the end of it, you will have developed a broad foundation in all disciplines of civil engineering.

Among the main subjects of the program are structural engineering, construction materials, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, water resources, environmental engineering and construction management.The civil engineering degree will also help you improve your communication skills, use computer tools and develop high standards of professional ethics.

We place considerable emphasis on group-based, open-ended design projects, and we motivate our students to stay ahead of current technical developments and environmental and global issues.With governments throughout the region eager to develop and enhance their infrastructure and the construction industry playing a significant role in that development, our region has seen an increased demand for civil engineers. As a result, you will be in a privileged position to start a career in this sector upon graduation.

Admission requirements

Secondary school certificates are awarded either by ministries of education or by private schools and institutions. AUS recognizes certificates awarded by ministries of education. However, some countries award two levels of secondary school certificates. In this case, the university recognizes the higher certificate.

The university accepts certificates awarded by private secondary schools that are recognized by their host country. The university also accepts certificates awarded by recognized qualification authorities, international boards and national boards.

The UAE Ministry of Education requires enrolled students to obtain a certificate of equivalency for their secondary education certificate. To meet this condition, please refer to Certificate of Equivalency to check if your secondary education certificate requires equivalency and the process of obtaining it.

Following is a list of some common certificates and the corresponding minimum levels of performance required for accepting an application to AUS. These certificates and levels of achievement serve as guidelines only for admission to AUS and may change depending on the education system or school. Moreover, they may differ from other institutions or the standards that are generally accepted in an applicant's native country. The university may consider other types of secondary school certificates.
