Engineering Technology & Science

The Division of Engineering Technology and Science at the Higher Colleges of Technology offers a wide range of programmes and courses at the Bachelor of Applied Science and Diploma level. These courses prepare students to take up challenging and critical positions requiring technical expertise in a modern and evolving world. Students experience a hands-on approach to learning that combines theory with practice and focuses on the demands of the modern workplace.

Graduates will be competent in their chosen technical specialisation, as well as in communications and information technology, critical thinking and problem solving, self-management and teamwork. Employment prospects are excellent in many large sectors such as construction, energy, oil and gas, aviation, telecommunications, computing, manufacturing, consulting, the government and the military.

For details of campuses that offer Engineering Technology programmes, accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, and Aviation programmes, licensed by the General Civil Aviation Authority (UAE), please refer to Programme Accreditation page.
