Graduate's Profile

The graduate of HIAST possesses the knowledge and technical skills necessary to practice his work as an engineer in his field of specialization, and has a solid basis in the basic sciences, which makes it easy for him to keep up with the updates that occur in that field and to communicate effectively with specialists in other engineering fields, enhanced by his good knowledge of foreign languages, especially English. Besides, he possesses complementary knowledge and skills that will help him understand his work environment in its administrative and economic dimensions, thus supporting his subsequent professional path as a leading engineer through effective dealing with this environment.
The graduate of HIAST is characterized by his distinguished ability to systematically analyze and synthesize, and to judge and argue logically, in addition to his ability to abstract and generalize, which enables him to develop innovative designs for products and introduce innovative improvements to work methods.
The graduate of HIAST is characterized by perseverance, acting responsibly, and by his ability to adapt to his work environment and to working conditions under pressure, as well as his ability to combine individual initiative and self-learning on the one hand, and effective contribution when working within teams on the other hand, in addition to open thinking enhanced by his possession of the necessary skills to communicate effectively with others and benefit from their experiences.

The duration of study at the Higher Institute is five years, after which the student obtains the degree of Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Engineering in one of the following specializations:

Informatics Engineering :

This speciality includes two programs:

  • Software Engineering & Artificial Intelligence
  • Networks & Operating Systems

The Software Engineering & Artificial Intelligence qualifies the student to master the concepts and techniques related to software engineering, databases, and data analysis using artificial intelligence techniques, compilers, parallel programming, graphs, network basics, web programming, and mobile applications, in addition to the ability to develop appropriate software solutions and systems in various fields.

The Networks & Operating Systems Engineering qualifies the student to master the concepts and techniques related to operating systems, parallel programming, distributed systems, network technologies and security, network programming, information security, and the basics of software engineering, in addition to the ability to design and manage networks and operate information systems.

 

Mechatronics Engineering:

The mechatronics engineering major qualifies the student to master the concepts and techniques related to mechatronic systems in their various aspects (mechanics, electronics, control, materials, and robotics), and the ability to analyze, design, and implement integrated electromechanical systems.

Aeronautical Engineering  (Aleppo Branch):

The aeronautical engineering major qualifies the student to master the concepts and techniques related to aircraft structures, aerodynamics, flight dynamics, propulsion, control, mobile and information systems, and the ability to analyse, design, and test aeronautical systems.

Electronic Systems Engineering:

The electronic systems engineering major qualifies the student to master the concepts and techniques related to electronics, driving electrical machines, all types of control, industrial networks, programming and image processing, and the ability to analyze systems composed of electrical, electronic and mechanical parts, and to design and implement integrated electro-electrical systems.

Materials Science and Engineering:

The Materials Science and Engineering major qualifies the student to master the concepts and techniques related to the structure, properties, and performance of materials, techniques for their synthesis, and methodologies for testing and characterization. This includes polymeric, ceramic, glass, metal, and composite materials of all kinds and nanomaterials. Besides, the student will have the ability to synthesize new materials or modify known materials, and characterize them.
