I enjoyed my time at UoS. The professors were supportive and encouraged us to produce realistic projects. They came from diverse international backgrounds and it was always exciting to learn different things from each professor. The university provided international internship opportunities and supported extra-curricular activities. We organized a multitude of events and international trips to Munich, Tokyo, and Barcelona. After graduation, our degree allowed us to pursue further education internationally as some of my fellow alumni did. I recommend this program to anyone seeking a balanced education suited for the local environment and market. Ahmed Latif (2009 - 2014)
Architect at Architectural Conversation Department
"In this department, we experience the merge of Design, Architectural
theories, and Engineering practice that helps us cope with the rapid changing
world and market."
"We gained the understanding of Human needs, abilities of creating
competitive Designs, and the knowledge to make buildings stand up."
"I was a key founder of our students association, SASA in 2008. The
association helped motivate students,
and create a socially energetic
environment, making it one of the most active
association in the whole
“A great place to receive a high quality education and develop a
sense of creativity”
“ While working as an intern, I received a great
feedback from the company on my work and knowledge that I gain at the Department
of Architectural Engineering”
Our department is one of the few in the UAE that offers a program that
combines Architecture and Engineering, which gives us unlimited ways to express
ourselves in design.
As a student, my instructors easily manage to get me interested in the
material; while my colleagues are very competitive which makes me productive
more and more. As for activities and ideas we students have , we are usually met
with a lot of encouragement.
In the whole world, if you visit the architectural engineering department,
you may be amazed of the beautiful architecture of the building or the well
designed program, but what truly amazed me here is the marvelous architecture of
the students’ souls. To be honest, if there is a reason that made me enter this
department, it would be for its social life.
