Brief History, Faculty of Engineering
The faculty of engineering was started in 2008 to give priority to academic research and consultancy and promote a strong local and international cooperation in the field of engineering. The Faculty contributes to producing a Model Society through imparting core academic and professional engineering values to the students, and working together with other sectors to implement the industrialized economic development strategy of the country and to make the economy of the country highly competitive in the construction and production spheres. After the destruction of infrastructure that resulted from the devastating civil war in early 1990’s, heavy investment is required in the construction sector. This will include investment in heavy machinery to build and construct all forms and types of required infrastructure. But all such investments are of no avail without a critical mass of highly qualified and well-trained human resource to handle such equipments. In any case, after the human capital flight that occurred during and after the civil war, the pool of qualified engineers in the country is too thin to meet the current construction demand. Amoud University responded to this shortfall by creating the faculty of engineering in 2008. The aim of the university is to reduce over-reliance of expectorate engineers by producing well qualified local engineers. The faculty was founded on this mission, and has endeavored to produce local personnel who can invent, design, analyze, build and test machines, complex systems, structures, gadgets and materials to fulfill fundamental objectives and requirements with contextual limitations.
