The Minor in Environmental Engineering at AUD is a open to students majoring in any field except Civil Engineering.
Allowing students to further their knowledge in the areas of environmental engineering and sustainability, the program can be added as a secondary focus, allowing them to enhance their skills in a specific area of interest without the responsibility of a major.
The field of environmental engineering is wide but students can choose to focus on a particular area depending on the courses they choose.
To complete the Minor in Environmental Engineering, students must earn a minimum of 15 credit hours from the following courses:
||Principles of Biology
|CHEM 201||General Chemistry
|ECVL 340||Environmental Engineering, w/Lab||3|
|Total Minor Core Requirements
|ECVL 330||Fluid Mechanics, w/Lab||3|
|ECVL 433||Hydraulic Engineering||3|
|ECVL 440||Sustainable Engineering Design||3|
|ECVL 444||Water and Wastewater Engineering||3|
|Total Minor Elective Requirements||6|
|TOTAL MINOR REQUIREMENTS||15|
Students are responsible for completing all course prerequisites. In addition to university-wide requirements, only courses counting toward the General Electives can also be counted toward this minor. A course may not be used to fulfill the requirements of more than one minor.

I moved from Italy to attend The American University in Dubai and pursue a degree in Civil Engineering. It was difficult for me to leave behind my friends, family and the surroundings in which I felt safe and comfortable.
Being an engineering student at AUD makes you unique - not because you have tough courses - but for having the E building as your home for four years.
