The future vision of the Applied Science University College of Engineering in integrating specializations diversity in the labour market
The Acting Dean of the College of Engineering at Applied Sciences University, Dr. Adnan Altamimi, assured that all the academic programmes offered by the college of engineering in collaboration with London South Bank University LSBU are delivered according to the strategic track of the Higher Education Council HEC, and emphasizing on the international scientific-educational standards. He declared that the admissions door for the first semester of the academic year 2020/2021 is open for students who desire to enrol in this prestigious engineering major.
Dr. Altamimi pointed out that this is the University first step towards internationalization. The formation of a solid partnership with highly ranked institutions such as LSBU is a substantial gateway to improve the University's swift progress in the advanced scientific research, which reflects on the series of highly distinguished achievements that the university has attained. This is in addition to the institutional accreditation from the HEC. In fact, It is worth noting that LSBU is considered one of the prestigious universities in London, as it includes more than twenty thousand students and offers a range of diverse academic specializations at all educational levels from the bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees, and it achieved the “Times Award” for leadership in the field of higher education for the year 2016.
He also stated that the college of engineering offers undergraduate degrees, which are in collaboration with LSBU, in both civil and architectural engineering programmes, that will qualify the student to obtain international degrees from studying at ASU. Therefore, these programmes were all launched after a comprehensive and extensive study of both current and prospective expectations of the domestic and global labour market, emphasizing on the university commitment for applying the highest educational standards that contribute to the economic enhancement of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and the Arab region.
