The objective of the course:

The Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering is to prepare students to be proficient in the application of basic science and technology in order for them to pursue career opportunities in various public and private sectors such as government, education, and business. Students served are also capable of meeting the expanding challenges of high technology as they complete their programs of study. Thus, the School is involved in teaching, research, and service projects as they related to the School's mission and the mission of the University.

In pursuing its primary mission, activities focused on the achievement of academic excellence, professional service, applied research, and development allow the School to work toward the achievement of the following goals and objectives:

•  to offer high quality programs to prepare students for the technical workforce of the 21 st century.

•  to provide an environment which nurtures individual development and creativity through the application of science, engineering, and technology.

•  to maintain “accreditation standards” in all degree programs with heavy emphasis on applied research, development and professional service activities.

•  to develop strong partnerships with the business, industry, and governmental sectors for economic development and technology transfer activities.

The four year degree program has been chalked out and divided into 12 semesters. There will be semester of 16 weeks duration with 15 weeks of class instruction and one week of examinations etc. The two full semester are in Fall and Spring with an intermediate semester of Summer.
