Faculty of Applied Science – FAS
As the Dean of Faculty of Applied Sciences, I am very glad to welcome future engineers at the National University of Rwanda.
The faculty offers a variety of engineering programmes which cover both undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Our programmes are designed to strengthen the engineering skills of the students by promoting high quality education and research. The undergraduate programmes range from Computer Science, Information Technology, Electricity & Electronics, to Civil Engineering. The postgraduate programme includes the Information Communication Technology, Water Resources & Environment Management. Currently, the faculty is developing new programmes such as BSc. Mechatroncis, BSc. Information Communication Engineering, BSc. Environmental Engineering, MSc. Mechatronics, MSc. Computer Science Engineering and MSc. Mobile & Satellite Engineering.
Students from our faculty are trained to suit the job market in Rwanda as well as the regional and global markets. The alumni survey and tracer study indicates that 70% of our graduates are employed immediately after graduation. This shows the good potentials to explore your career in engineering studies.
Once again, my hearty welcome to students to the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
Prof. Park SUNG HAN
Dean of Faculty
This Faculty has nearly 1284 students and is organized into three departments; Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (which offers degrees in IT and in Computer Science and Systems).and four labs
The Faculty came into existence in 2006 after the separation of the pure sciences from the department of technology. The Faculty also offers masters degrees in Water Resources and Environmental Management, supported by NUFFIC and ICT (Computer Science / Telecommunication), supported by SIDA / SAREC, and is considering a qualification in mining at graduate or postgraduate level.
Numbers of full time students are expected to rise to around 1500 in five years. The Faculty supports a small campus at Rusizi in Western Province, where day and evening programmes in ICT are offered.
