The Civil Engineering program prepares students to apply scientific and mathematical principles to engineering design and construction. Courses include physics, chemistry, geology, and hydrology—and practical sciences such as surveying and computer graphics. Students receive specific instruction across a range of Civil Engineering practices, including structural and geotechnical engineering (buildings and their foundations), transport engineering (roads, airports, bridges), water resources engineering (dams, rivers, urban water systems), and construction engineering management (cost estimation, scheduling).Mechanical Engineering
Students learn to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems in a variety of industries. Subject areas include: Dynamics and Controls; Mechanical Design; Nanotechnology; Thermal Sciences; and Solid and Fluid Mechanics. Students gain an understanding of physics, mathematics, and materials to design components ranging from cellular matrices for tissue engineering, to cooling systems for hot underground mines, to hardware for military machinery and medical prosthetics.
Civil Engineering graduates find work in government, private engineering companies, and engineering consultancies. Career options include:
Mechanical engineers are needed in virtually every industry, including:
A non-profit institution dedicated to providing education for the benefit of Kurdistan, Iraq and the wider region, the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani provides a learning environment where students, regardless of their ethnic, sociopolitical, or economic background come to develop strength in critical thinking, the ability to communicate well, a strong work ethic, good citizenship, and personal integrity.
