Why Sustainable & Renewable Energy Engineering Department


Prof. Abdul Ghani Olabi, Head of SREE Department

  • What are the benefits of pursuing this program?

It is a distinctive and bachelor's degree in the field of renewable energy- the fastest growing and most popular field in the world. This means it will provide great job opportunities in order to progress your engineering career.

  • Why do you recommend this program to students looking for admission this year?
This degree has excellent job prospects. In addition, this is a very important field that aims to protect the planet by reducing global warming, while also providing many prestigious future job opportunities, as it is a very popular field.

  • What are the career prospects of this program?
Our students study the basic topics related to chemical, mechanical and electrical engineering, with emphasis on Sustainable and renewable energy engineering. This multidisciplinary degree not only offers job opportunities in the field of renewable energy, but also many other engineering (and non engineering) career choices, as it is a versatile and well-respected degree choice by many employers.

  • What kind of opportunities students stand to gain from this course in the real world?
Students will gain a broad knowledge regarding energy production from renewable or energy sources (solar, wind, marine etc.). Pursuing this degree means our students will be leaders in this leading engineering sector, and will have the knowledge and potential to catapult into great job opportunities, as renewable energy is the most demanded field worldwide.

  • What is your feedback about this programme?
The sustainable and renewable energy engineering programme is one of the most diverse and knowledgeable on many levels, and here in UOS we study everything related to the programme. Although our programme is very wide, yet we went through most of the subjects and physics mainly mechanical, fluid and thermodynamics and more, to renewable sources like solar and wind energy systems.


  • What are your career expectations from this programme?
One reason i joined this programme is because of the wide job opportunities our major offers, and due to the subject diversity of the programme graduates can easily find a job in UAE or abroad, besides the main goal of most countries is to pave way for renewable energy sources instead of traditional energy industries.


  • What kind of support are you getting from the university to complete this programme successfully?
I always felt satisfied and happy during my time in the university. When i first started the university, i didn't find any problems during the registration, and my professors are all kind and ready to help me whenever i needed in every aspect of my life, wethere its school work or for my life, because they see me as an engineer and they want to walk me through everything they went through so i don't do the same mistakes they did and become a good engineer.


  • What is your feedback about this programme?
Sustainable and renewable energy engineering is an important part of engineering. We students of the sustainable and renewable energy engineering of the university of Sharjah study vast topics. We started off with studying the basics of engineering like fluid mechanics and thermodynamics and others until we reached subjects that distinguish us such as solar PV and wind energy systems.

 
  • What are your career expectations from this programme?
One of the main reasons of why I chose the sustainable and renewable energy engineering department is by looking to the future job market. This type of engineering is new and could rarely be found at other institutions which opens up a vast opportunity for jobs inside the country or outside. The main reason to employ a sustainable and renewable energy engineer is the country's vision to a clean and sustainable energy for the future and deviation from the traditional and harmful way of producing energy.


  • What kind of support are you getting from the university to complete this programme successfully?
Throughout the years I felt totally relaxed comfortable and calm and this is due to the different type of supports that the university supplied me. As an example in my first year, the staff helped me to register quickly and easily with little to no effort. During my studies I found all the lecturers to be kind and cooperative and ready to provide support whenever asked. As I am in my last year of engineering, I am very satisfied with the doctors of my department since they all treat me as a future engineer and involved me in many researches and that is all thanks to them for giving me the confidence and trusting me to forego this crucial part. Therefore in my opinion, the university provided me with all that i need to be a great engineer for the future.
