School of Engineering, Engineering Technology & Environmental Sciences Programmes
The School of Engineering, Technology and Architecture of the Nubian Advanced American College aspires to be a major leader in innovative engineering, technology education and Architecture while engaging in research that addresses current challenges. It aims to be a highly rated Engineering School recognized for excellence, innovation and contributing to a sustainable world of Architecture, shaping public policy, and enhancing the quality of life.
The mission of the School of Engineering, Technology and Architecture is to provide high quality education at associate degree level. Its main objective is to develop excellence in fostering industry/collegiate partnerships and to contribute to the development and application of technology for the advancement and welfare of the community at large. The School prepares graduates to become innovative, socially responsible leaders in industry, government, and academia with education grounded in the fundamental principles and creative approaches of engineering, technology, and architecture.
The foundation courses for the different engineering degree programmes are basically the same for all programmes in the School . An important aspect of engineering training is the need for some measure of flexibility and transferability. At the tender age that most students gain admissions into universities coupled with lack of exposure to in-depth career guidance and counselling, it is difficult for a young person to make a life-long commitment to an engineering discipline. While he or she may know that she wants a career in engineering, it might be too soon to decide which particular branch of engineering is most suited for him/her. It is therefore imperative to have an inbuilt flexibility that enables transfer from one engineering discipline to another in a continuous journey through the system. Better still, if the first two years are basically the same, most, if not all, would have received sufficient exposure to enable them enter into the discipline that they are most likely to thrive in rather than just coping. This is one of the principal reasons why American Universities have fairly uniform requirements for the first two years in their Colleges of Engineering. In fact, the student does not have to declare a major (that is a field of engineering specialization) until after these two years.
