We thank Allah and to Him we resort. Peace and prayers be upon Prophet Mohamed. After greetings,

Out of the keenness of the College of Engineering and Islamic Architecture on giving its students sufficient applied experience that contributes to improving their practical qualification level and connects them to the work environment as well as help them understand the role they play after graduation, the College gave special attention to the summer training program and has prepared it in coordination with various work sectors.

The summer training, which is distributed on two separate summer periods during the summer, is an essential part of the graduation requirements that students must meet successfully. The duration of each course is 45 days. The course provides students with the opportunity to develop practical knowledge and skills as well as connect theoretical studies with the practical reality, which would help students accept the nature of work and adapt to it, as well as develop communication skills with others.

Summer Training Administration:

It is one of the administrations of the College of Engineering and Islamic Architecture. It is subject to the administrative structure in force within the College. This administration handles all matters related to the training of students, from accepting training requests to finding training opportunities, distributing students on the various bodies and monitoring them, preparing the results of the training, providing departments with the required information for the students of each department, and many other matters related to the training.

Summer training objectives:

They can be summarized into the following points:

  1. Allowing students to become familiar with the work environment they are expected to work in after graduation through this training.
  2. Understanding the obstacles and difficulties of work and how to deal with them.
  3. Doing practical work in the work sector which is complementary to the educational process.
  4. Understanding the equipment and preparations in the work locations and connecting this to what has been learned in the College.
  5. Providing students with the opportunity to learn about the different employers through the summer training 1 and 2 to choose what is proper for them in their specialty field.
  6. Allowing students to understand the engineering problems in their environment as well as finding proper engineering solutions through research or graduation projects.
  7. Giving the college a clear idea on the needs of the labor market and its various requirements, which would positively affect the college both in terms of developing its curricula or opening new specialties, based on suggestions from the faculty members supervising the training of students.
