Faculty of Engineering
note from the dean


The Faculty of Engineering at Notre Dame University-Louaize was established in 1996 by Lebanese Government decree no. 9278 as the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. In 1997 the Architecture program was moved to the newly established Faculty of Architecture, Art and Design. The Faculty currently enrolls more than 1500 students in its three Departments and has more than 1500 Alumni around the world.
The Faculty of Engineering endeavors to offer an excellent education for its graduates and to prepare them to enter professional practice in the engineering field. Despite its relatively young age, the Faculty of Engineering at NDU has positioned itself as one of the top engineering schools in Lebanon and the region.
Our curricula have a strong applied component supported by state of the art laboratory facilities. Engineering students develop their design skills by tackling real world projects in Laboratory courses, class design projects and senior engineering design projects many of which are done in cooperation with industry. Emphasis is also placed on giving our students an understanding of the ethical, social, economic and environmental impact of engineering work.
In keeping with high academic standards, all our full-time faculty members hold PhD degrees in their field and our selective admissions and transfer policies ensure that we get the highest caliber of students. These students have distinguished themselves by winning prizes at national and international design competitions and by publishing their undergraduate research findings in national and international conferences.
Our small class sizes ensure good interaction with instructors and good access to academic help outside of the classroom. Several on-campus chapters of international professional organizations are active in the Faculty. These ensure that students are exposed to the latest technical developments in their field. Several agreements with universities in Europe and the US have been signed. These agreements provide opportunities for our students to engage in research and graduate studies at reputable universities worldwide.
With the fast technological developments our society is witnessing, engineering is becoming a profession where one needs to be equipped for life-long learning, to have excellent communication skills and an ability to engage in effective teamwork. These objectives are achieved through the rigorous educational program in the Faculty and they are the qualities that enable our students to succeed in today’s job market.
This is an exciting time to be an engineer and NDU offers a unique engineering education where students have access to the latest technology, qualified instructors, excellent facilities and exposure to the values of faith, excellence and service embedded in NDU’s mission.
I invite you to browse through this website and to visit our facilities and meet with our faculty members to learn more about engineering at Notre Dame University-Louaize.
