Kampala International University KIU School of Engineering – see the list of courses offered at the school…

Introduction

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) is one of the three schools located in the New Building with its offices on the second floor. It started in 2009/2010 academic year with only four engineering courses that are: Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE), Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME), Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications Engineering (BSTC). The majority of the courses which started prior to 2009/2010 were applied sciences and natural sciences programmes. The total number of students who enrolled for the year was 36 students. The number of enrollment kept on increasing year after year.

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences stands at an interesting point of time and we know it is too early for the School to claim world-class that will address community problems in a substantial way. However, the School can certainly claim numerous innovations in curriculum and in governance as it grows. With the huge investments in the state of the art laboratories, the image of the school is certainly going to change but it is important that we do not lose sight of our goals and the critical elements to achieve those goals.

Philosophy

The school of engineering and applied sciences regards every other student as having the ability to attain excellence through the acquisition of knowledge and moral values so as to become productive graduates capable of participating and developing knowledge to better understand the 21st century skills in Science, technology, engineering  and innovation, develop self, society and nation.

Motto

‘Path to Excellence’

The School Management Team

The school is managed and run by the Dean and Associate Dean. They are assisted by a team of five (5) Heads of Departments, ten (10) Departmental Coordinators and two secretaries.

Programmes Offered At SEAS

Basing on several benchmarks, the programme structure for all the programmes offered at SEAS shall be as follows.

Basic Science Courses, Basic Mathematics Course Requirements

These are first-year freshman courses at SEAS designed to:

  • Provide an introductory treatment of scientific concepts fundamental to engineering.
  • Apply scientific methods to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data in engineering

Core Mathematics Courses

These courses are meant to:

  • Consolidate and advances the material covered in pre-university mathematics.
  • Provide the mathematical tools needed in other semesters’ course units.
  • Develop the analytical and critical thinking abilities fundamental to problem-solving in Engineering.

Computer Courses

Computer Courses studied here are done so as to:

  • Apply computer skills in engineering fields.
  • Use the notations of syntax and semantics of programming languages in engineering.
  • Identify the appropriate paradigm for a given programming problem.
  • Design computer programs for solving engineering problems.

Humanities, Arts, Languages and Social Sciences Requirements

Also, some elective courses are done from the Humanities and Social Sciences, in a bid to encourage a wholesome university training and in order to:

  • Impart effective skills in reading, listening, speaking and interaction;
  • Enable the students to prepare technical and academic documents;
  • Enhance the student’s capacity to effectively deliver public and formal oral presentations using appropriate visual and computer aids;
  • Explain the fundamental concepts and principles of entrepreneurial theory including the basic roles, skills, and functions of management.

Discipline And Core Courses Inclusive Of Practical Units and Mini Projects

Among other courses, this is to:

  • Provide the students with a broad range of knowledge and skills necessary for a career in STEM.
  • Develop skills in STEM and production/project management.
  • Enhance the development of the students’ research, study, presentation, and interpersonal skills.
  • Relate theoretical concepts to actual practice in the industry.
  • Describe the organisation and operation of Engineering firms.

Elective Courses For Each Specialized Track

This is to:

  • Provide greater focus on the specific areas of practice.

Workshop Practice And Industrial Training

These practicals and pieces of training are done to:

  • Equip the students with different types of tools and machines in different engineering workshops and how they operate to render the services in the industry.
  • Attain practical skills in STEM through industrial training.
  • Apply the theoretical knowledge in the industrial training process.

Final Year Project

The Final Year project is aimed at enabling students:

  • Identify problems in STEM and map out solution strategies using design or research.
  • Present seminars on individual initiative.
  • Present a written report of original work on a chosen project.
