College of Engineering

DAUST College of Engineering’s mission is to educate the next generation of engineering leaders and inventors.


Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering

The mission of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at DAUST is to offer educational programs of the highest quality that will prepare students for leadership positions in the chemical, biochemical, biomedical, and materials industries.

Students from this program develop a firm and practical grasp of engineering principles and the underlying science associated with traditional chemical engineering applications and the analysis of biological systems. Upon completion of their studies, our graduates are well equipped to work in the following fields:

  • Process Design Engineer
  • Environmental Engineer
  • Plant Process Engineer
  • Biomedical Engineer
  • Quality Control Engineer

Civil & Environmental Engineering

Civil and Environmental Engineers are responsible for building and maintaining infrastructure to provide potable water, clean air, and safe buildings. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) offers programs to help students prepare for careers in
  • Transportation engineering
  • Construction engineering
  • Hydrology and hydraulic engineering 
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • Energy, water, and environmental sustainability
Our students and graduates learn to improve sustainability of infrastructure related to water, energy and urban systems with respect to increasing demand from a growing population, climate-related disasters, and deterioration.

Electrical Engineering & Computer Science

The electrical Engineering and computer Science major applies mathematical and physical principles to a wide variety of electrical, electronic, computer-based devices and systems. Computer science majors learn about computer systems. Instruction includes programming and the theory and design of software.

Graduates from this program work in areas as diverse as:

  • Software applications developer
  • Computer and communication networks,
  • Electronic circuits and systems, Lasers and photonics
  • Semiconductor and solid-state devices, nanoelectronics,
  • Artificial intelligence, robotics, control and optimization, computer algorithms
