Professional Occupations For Which Graduates Are Prepared In The Program

Graduates of the Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management program are prepared for a variety of careers in Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management. Example job titles include:

  • Production Engineer: Review production schedules, engineering specifications, process flows, and other information to understand methods that are applied and activities that take place in manufacturing and services.

  • Manufacturing Engineer: Figure out how to manufacture parts or products, or deliver services, with maximum efficiency

  • Quality/Reliability Engineer: quality control procedures to resolve production problems or minimize costs.

  • Project manager: Develop management control systems to make financial planning and cost analysis more efficient. Confer with clients about product specifications, vendors about purchases, management personnel about manufacturing capabilities, and staff about the status of projects

Bachelor Degree in General Requirements

Students applying for admission to all ECT academic programs must be graduates with a UAE Secondary School Certificate, or it’s equivalent, as stated in the admission requirements set in the Ministerial Decrees No. 200/year 2004 and No 133/year 2005.

A) Secondary School Certificate: A certified UAE general secondary school certificate, with a minimum score of 60% or its equivalent is required for admission, according to the regulations of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. However, students with scores of less than 60% can study in the Foundation program and should pass 5 courses namely, Arabic Language, IT, Mathematics, Study Skills, and English Communication, along with a TOEFL score of 500 or equivalent before they study academic courses. Students with Industrial, Applied Technology, Commercial, and Agricultural Secondary School Certificates and with a minimum score of 65% can be admitted to ECT programs that are closely related to their fields of study and have to fulfill all other admission requirements. However, students with these certificates and with scores less than 65% can be admitted in the Foundation Program.

B) Proficiency in English: An adequate level of English language proficiency is required for admission. Applicants are required to present one of the following certificates of proficiency:

  • For English programs: (Diploma & Bachelor)
    1. Valid certified TOEFL results equivalent to 500 (173CBT, a 61 iBT) or above
    2. Valid certified IELTS results band 5.0
    3. Valid certified PTE A score of (36-41) is equivalent to an IELTS score of 5.0, and a PTE A score of (44) is equivalent to TOEFL 500 (173CBT, a 61 iBT). Otherwise, they may undertake a course of remedial or intensive English but must achieve the required score before they can proceed into their academic programs.
  • For the Arabic program “Mass Communication and Public Relations,” students should submit a TOEFL certificate with a score of 450 or equivalent. A student with a score of 400 can study the first year program but needs to obtain a 450 score before proceeding to the second year.
  • For Foundation Certificate Program Students who are admitted in the Foundation Program at ECT and wish to pursue their higher education also at ECT and have successfully completed the requirements of the (FP) should meet the English proficiency requirement.
  • Students who can’t provide proof of English proficiency upon admission will be required to undertake a course of remedial or intensive English provided by the ECT
