First University in UAE to offer accredited Industrial Engineering degree
Alhosn University is set to become the first University, in the UAE, to offer a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering.
Supported by Abu Dhabi Holding, the Industrial Engineering degree was accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education.
The undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering was developed by Alhosn University to provide students with the knowledge and expertise to determine the most effective ways for an organisation to use the basic factors of production including; people, machines, materials, information, and energy to make or process a product.
Alhosn University’s Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department, Dr Hamdi Sheibani believes that this course provides students with broad knowledge in engineering as well as management.
“This is a very strong course as it is not pure engineering; it also includes studies in management, marketing, economics therefore organizations will employ graduates with engineering as well as management knowledge,” says Dr Sheibani.
The mission of the Industrial Engineering program at Alhosn University is to attain excellence in industrial engineering education by providing an accredited undergraduate program of study in the discipline thus preparing students for successful careers in the field.
Industrial engineering is a specialization being constantly implemented throughout the UAE. Alhosn University’s Vice President Professor Ziad Saghir believes that students should be educated about engineering from the best possible source available.
“Industrial Engineering is a growing industry throughout this region and we endeavour to provide students with the best engineering education available,” says Professor Saghir.
Graduates can enter into the following careers; Industrial Engineer, Systems Analyst, Production Control Manager, Quality Control Manager, Operations Research Analyst, Industrial Cost Control Manager and Manufacturing Engineer.
Courses are offered in the faculties of Engineering and Applied Science, Arts and Social Science and Business.
Alhosn University would like to sincerely thank Sheikh Nahayan Mubarak Al-Nahayan, Minister of Education for assisting to continuously improve the higher education in the UAE.
First enrolments will be accepted in September 2005. The university will only offer positions for 300 students initially to ensure that students experience a high level of education.
