كلية الهندسة - شطر الطالبات



Undergraduate Programs

The study in the Faculty of Engineering follows a ten-semester system:

     Concentrating on the courses that must be completed in scheduled time and on the student’s ability to understand the courses and interact with his colleagues.

     Taking into account the aptitude diversity among students. Students can adjust their pace and complete studies as per their capacity.

      Giving the student self-confidence by selecting courses that suit his interests within the program constraints.

      Variation of assessment methods, such as homework, quizzes, major exams, midterm, final test, projects, and various types of assignments.

      Maintaining a strong relationship between students and instructors by appointing an academic advisor upon admission to an engineering department.

 

B.Sc. Degree - A General Outline

Following the introduction of the prep year in King Abdulaziz University, the Faculty of Engineering was required to readjust its curriculum to comply with this fundamental modification.  The updated curriculum presented in this Bulletin is the result of this readjustment.  It consists of 155 credit units similar to the previous curriculum in spite of the additional 14 credit units introduced in the prep year as follows:

 

1.      Two additional credit units have been allocated to the four English language courses (Now 6 credit units, formerly 4 in the previous curriculum)

2.      Twelve additional credit units allocated to the following four new courses:

In order to qualify for a B.Sc. degree in Engineering, a student must successfully complete 155 credit units with an overall GPA of 2.75 out of 5 or better while satisfying the curricular requirements of his program of specialization. Regular track students are also required to complete one summer training of 10 weeks in industry under the supervision of a faculty member.  This summer training and 6 credit units of the departmental electives are replaced by the coop training work program of 25 weeks for coop track students.  The typical study period is five years (10 semesters).

 

Study Plan Framework


The program of study for the Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering is designed to provide a strong background in Science, Mathematics, Islamic Studies and Humanities besides the Engineering courses. The main objective of the program is to develop the professional proficiency of high caliber associated with personal and cultural maturity of the students consistent with the Islamic values and the social ethics of the society.

Industrial training for students is an integral part of the graduation requirements. This is organized either as a short spell of summer training program with ten weeks duration (2 credit units) in the regular track or as a single long spell of training under the co-operative work program of 26 weeks duration (8 credit units) in the coop track (if applicable). The industrial training is supervised/evaluated jointly by the Faculty members as well as by the personnel assigned by the industrial organization.  The 8 credit units of the coop program replace the 2 credit units of the summer training and 6 credit units out of the departmental electives.The 155 credit units required for the B.Sc. degree in each Engineering Program in regular or coop track are distributed as indicated in following flowchart and tables illustrated in the figure.

Departmental Requirements (77 Credit Hours)


Each department has its own special requirements given in the respective section(s) of this bulletin. Students can refer to these sections for detailed course requirements.

 


Guide Lines for First 4 Semesters Applicable to All Engineering Programs


In addition to the common first foundation year, the second year of the curriculum covers a large part of the Faculty of Engineering requirements.  Students are required to complete all courses offered in this year so that they can apply for specialization during the second semester of second year and join their departments starting from the third year (fifth semester). The Faculty Council has developed a plan as a guideline for the first 4 semesters of study which is outlined in the following tables:
