Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is a major academic unit of the UoD consisting of three schools namely, Engineering, Planning and Applied Earth Science and Geo-informatics. The School of Engineering (formerly College of Engineering) is the oldest. It was established in 1994 and consists of the Civil, Water Resources, Architectural and Electrical and Computer Engineering departments. The School of Planning (formerly the Higher Institute of Planning) is a postgraduate school that was established in 2007. The School of Applied Earth Science and Geo-informatics is in the construction phase and will receive undergraduate students as of next year.
The schools of Engineering and planning have been pre-eminent providers of engineers and integrated planners for the Kurdistan Region. We offer comprehensive programs of bachelor, higher diploma and master degrees in a plethora of disciplines in engineering and integrated planning which are intrinsic for the sustainable development of infrastructure and services in the Kurdistan Region.
Our Faculty strives to develop well educated engineers, integrated planners and applied scientists who have strong technical knowledge with practical skills and attributes required in the modern world. We consider the role of the student as pivotal in the learning process; as such we encourage our students to be innovative, critical thinkers, designers and problem solvers, team workers, as well as communicators and life-long learners. We have a range of laboratories together with computer facilities that cater for teaching and research. We contribute to many construction projects in Kurdistan through the Engineering Consultancy Bureau and cherish several programs of collaboration in research with US, British, German and other European universities.
