Preparation Program


UBT’s Preparatory Program consists of non-credit courses specifically designed to improve student’s proficiency in English before they undertake undergraduate study to develop and improve their knowledge of mathematical and analytic techniques through the English Language medium. The program also familiarize students with various majors available at the college and the requirements of undergraduate study, study skills and discipline in all forms. The program consists of the following courses:

- Six-level English Language Program at the English Language Academy (ELA).

- Pre-Calculus (depending on the placement test).

At first, newly admitted students have to take an English placement test to determine their language level. Newly admitted students are required to take an English placement test to determine their English language level. Each student will be placed according to his/her test results.

Students are entitled to ELA course waiver by submitting one of the following: TOEFL iBT score of 59 or more; an IELTS score of 5.0 or more; or passing the ELA’s placement test with a score of 100 out of 120. Students are exempted from MATH099 if they pass the pre-calculus placement test.

Electrical Engineering Plan

It is highly important to follow the program plan during its different semesters as it was designed to prepare students in each stage to totally benefit from the following one. It is crucial for students to meet their academic advisor and follow the study plan of their major closely. This would typically include taking lower level courses in the first and second year, getting as much of general education as possible, and then moving on to take major courses and possibly some minor courses. This is a very carefully structured process that students should closely adhere to.
