Curriculum and Plan

Preparation Program

The University of Business & Technology’s Preparatory Program begins with non-credited courses specifically designed to improve student's proficiency in English before starting their undergraduate study, as well as to develop and improve student's knowledge of mathematical and analytic techniques through the English Language medium of instruction. The program also familiarizes students with various majors available at the college, the requirements of undergraduate study, study skills and discipline in all forms. The program is comprised of the following courses:

- Six English language Levels at the English Language Academy (ELA). 

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

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 may be exempted from MATH099 by passing the pre-calculus course placement test.

Industrial Engineering Plan

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