Faculty of Engineering & Information Technology


Advances in technology affect every facet of human society. Engineering Education and Research are key elements in the welfare and the prosperity of successful nations. As a multidisciplinary higher education and research institution, City University (CITYU) offers a unique laboratory-based curriculum that teaches engineering and IT students the difference between what works on paper and what works “on the bench.” Our highly experienced and specialized instructors teach with focus on both hardware and software.  They emphasize conceptual foundations of computer science and engineering, software development, and design and implementation of computers and computer-controlled systems.  CITYU students tackle challenging design projects that incorporate theoretical learning and hands-on experience in Electronics, Computing, Communications, Networking, Industrial, Civil, Environmental, Petroleum, Naval, and Information Technology.

FEITM not only prepare students to join directly the engineering work force, but also to pursue graduate studies in Lebanon or abroad.

The Faculty of Engineering curricula also focuses on non-technical skills such as working as part of a team, developing strong communication skills and the developing character for future leaders in our community.

FEITM opened new majors in cooperation with the Arab Academy of Science and Technology in Alexandria, Egypt.  This joint program, which also includes the exchange of instructors, offers Lebanese students the opportunity to study and prepare the degrees of ETO, 2nd mate, or 3rd Engineer, degrees recognized by the International Maritime Organization (IMO)

FEITM opened classes in the Industrial Engineering major. The major proved to be responding to the needs in the job market with the graduates joining work force and winning widely recognized competitions.

FEITM resumed instruction in the Civil Engineering program in cooperation with the University of Genoa, Italy and has applied for License to offer degrees in Petroleum Engineering.

FEITM research activities encompass Cooperation programs with local organizations as well as with organization within the European Union and the Mediterranean.
