The Applied Aerospace Engineering degree is designed to cover all fundamental aspects of Aerospace Engineering. The curriculum contains general education courses in the areas of Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science, Islamic and Arabic Studies, English and Physical Education similar to the Aerospace Engineering Science Option. In addition, the curriculum places extra emphasis on courses of practical importance such as AE 351 (Cooperative work). The industrial experience gained from the Cooperative Option is of immense value since it provides students with an important link between the theoretical and practical aspects of the Aerospace Engineering profession. The student must spend 28 weeks in an industrial setting. During this period of training, the student writes progress reports relevant to his work. After the prescribed time of training in industry, the student presents a seminar and submits a comprehensive technical report. The AE Department offers a variety of practically oriented elective courses, which include Aerospace System Maintenance, Aerospace Avionics, Astronautics, Flight Traffic Control and Safety.
