 Engineering Services

Director: M. Farag

Engineering Services was initiated in 1983 with the objective of strengthening the relationship between the Department of Engineering at AUC and local industry. Since then, Engineering Services activities have steadily grown. More than one hundred forty public- and private-sector companies and governmental agencies use Engineering Services, and more than one hundred  of them are now regular clients.

Engineering Services activities are performed by the AUC faculty in addition to professors from the national universities, engineers from industry and specialists from government agencies. The activities can be grouped into:

    1.Engineering development programs which consist of intensive short courses and are designed for practicing engineers in a wide range of specializations.

    2.Special training programs are tailor-made courses which are intended for personnel of a given organization on a particular topic. The programs can be given in-house or at AUC.

    3.Professional Program in Project Management trains engineers and other individuals to become project managers and equips them with modern techniques in this field. Six semester-long courses (45 contact hours each) are required for the Professional Certificate in Project Management.

    4.Professional Program in Computer Aided Engineering enables engineers to effectively apply up-to-date computer-based techniques in their areas of interest.  Six semester-long courses (45 contact hours each) are required for the Professional Certificate in Computer-Aided Engineering.

    5.Professional Program in Environmental Engineering introduces engineers to different disciplines of environmental quality assessment, management and control. Six-semester-long courses (45 contact hours each) are required for the Professional Certificate in Environmental Engineering.

    6.Professional Program in Information Technology  trains engineers, managers and other individuals to become IT-professionals and develop techniques in this field. Six semester-long courses (45 contact hours each) are required for the Professional Certificate in IT.

    7.Professional Program in Contractual & Legal Aspects in Constructions Industry  gives engineers, lawyers and accountants who are involved in the construction industry in-depth knowledge about the competitive use of contracts in modern organizations.

Six semester-long courses (45 contact hours each) are required for the Professional Certificate in Quality Assurance.

    9.Professional Program in Welding Engineering introduces engineers to different welding techniques, technologies, metallurgy, consumables and welding design.  Six semester-long courses (45 contact hours each) are required for the Professional Certificate in Welding Engineering.

    10.Industrial research involves long-term projects that are conducted according to a mutually acceptable contract.

    11. Advisory services are conducted on the basis of case-by-case contracts and cover short-term projects, aimed at solving specific problems or supplying information in a given field to users of this service.
