About

The College of Engineering has a national reputation in the science of engineering and is committed to educating students for lifelong success in the diverse world of business. Our graduates may be engaged in planning, development, services, project management at all its financial and administration aspects, teaching and information technology.

All of the departments of the College of Engineering offer bachelor degrees. Master degrees are offered for graduate study in the field of Civil Engineering, Water Resources Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering. Doctoral degrees are offered in Water Resources Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The College of Engineering officially opened its doors in 1994 with 40 students and 6 full-time academic members and has kept growing ever since. During this time, the college was able to build a distinguished reputation by committing to higher standards of education. The educational environment is designed to meet the student's needs and to provide them with professional skills that are required for becoming a successful engineer. Employing modern teaching methods, updated research laboratories and computer facilities were the great factors in achieving these goals. The ultimate goal of our college is to provide and practice orientated education for our students and create future focused engineering minds with vision.

Characteristics

The College of Engineering is engaged in planning, development, maintenance, services, work management, administration, financial management, and teaching and information technology. The educational environment is tailored to meet the needs of students and provide them with a variety of professional skills. The school employs modern teaching methods and research laboratories and computing facilities to train students to look ahead and meet the needs of the future.

Architectural Engineering focuses on the design and construction of safe, efficient, aesthetic and economical buildings. Civil Engineering provides the proper infrastructure for daily life while minimizing the environmental impact of any new scheme.

Resources engineering meet both current and emerging needs of industry to provide an overall understanding of the basic principles and essential details applicable to the development of water resources. 

Electrical and computer engineering, combines computers and electrical technology in managing hardware and software in communications, electronics, and computers.

Strategies

Since participation in the reconstruction and re-evolution of our beloved homeland is a great moral responsibility, the University of Duhok accepted the challenge and decided to open the College of Engineering. After completing a four-year undergraduate engineering program, a Bachelor degree is granted in Civil and Water Resources Engineering. In 2000, a Master of Science program in Engineering Structures, Engineering Soil & Foundation, Engineering Transportation and Engineering Sanitation were offered for the first time.

This year the University reorganized and increased the depth of its programmatic offering to match the needs of industry. Architectural Department was established in the college in 2004. The continued and ever expanding needs to build, renovate and maintain the construction infrastructure have been the main driving force behind the Establishment of this Department.

What distinguishes the College?

The college can be distinguished from the other colleges by its specialization which might be considered the base for any development in the field of Engineering.

The college provides students with a wide-range comprehension about Engineering; practical applications are more satisfactory in this college and this requires a great deal of work. Consequently, the prior point of view of the college is how to develop the Engineering sector in the Kurdistan region Having been based on modern styles of education is one of the main characteristics that distinguish this college from others. The curricula stress mainly on the most updated information and practical applications being

Practical use of courses

There is a good connection between the theoretical and practical courses given in the college and the application of the subject in actual life as they fulfill the needs of any individual for being a specialist in a certain field.

Once the students have graduated, it is expected that they will be able to offer scientific services based on the academic and practical knowledge they have gained during their years of studying

The college is expected to offer services to the society through the students who graduate from its departments. The courses and the curricula fulfill most of the requirements of actual life and society needs in term of proficiency. These courses and curricula are subjected to improvement periodically according to the actual needs of the region.

The cultural and the scientific relationships with the other Schools, private sector and governmental directorates. There is a constant cooperation exchange between the college and other colleges by supervision on high education researchers and study courses besides dealing with external examiners to dispute high educated student thesis.

The college has relationships with many different parts through scientific fields. The College of Engineering improves research programs by seeking to increase public and private support for the college. This support creates new opportunities for college staff and students to innovate and pursue excellence in research by developing and sustaining critical partnerships, also giving opportunities for attending conferences at different places will help to improve the qualifications of college staff for developing at local sectors.
