1. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM

1.1 Background

Debre Berhan University, under the Ministry of Education, was established in 2006. The university has expanded different schools and faculties to fulfill the objective of the university. School of engineering established in 2009 as a five years course of engineering education and started by Civil and Electrical engineering programs.

In September 2010, the school will be expanded to include instructions in Mechanical Engineering and construction technology management programs that the undergraduate program is intended to cover five years.

From the previous established universities’ experience, stakeholders and employers have expressed concerns that the graduates of the engineering Programs lack practical and innovative skills. This lack has been coupled by deficiency in communication and managerial skills of the graduates. It is believed that this curriculum has incorporated the necessary consideration that will address the issues raised by stakeholders and employers.
