log DIVISION OF COMPUTING AND ENGINEERING

 

   

The Computing and Engineering Division in the Tunisia Campus of Broward College assembles all the Associate degrees, Bachelor’s degrees, Master’s degrees, and professional certificates in Computing and Engineering that are made available to our international students in Tunisia. Those students have a choice to pursue those degrees in Tunisia or can travel to Florida and complete their studies in the USA. For the same study programs, students pay considerably less if they complete those studies in Tunisia. These same studies will cost more than 5 times the tuition rates adopted in Tunisia.

Please note that due to technological requirements needed to deliver some of the computing and engineering studies, only the first few years may be available to complete in the Tunisia Campus. The rest of the years will be available to our international students in Florida Atlantic University and other universities that share collaberative agreements with Broward College, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Some of the collebarative agreements that Broward College signed with sister State universities are available for consultation.

OVERVIEW:
The American University of Tunisia has started as the Broward College of Tunisia with the purpose of bringing American Higher Education to Tunisia in an affordable manner. We were always concerned about our Tunisian youth and how to advance them in a rapidly changing knowledge and technology-driven world. The American University of Tunisia represents a first opportunity for Tunisian students to pursue an authentic American higher education while they stay in their home country without the need to travel to the USA and pay higher tuition fees.

Our Tunisian students will be ready to compete and succeed in a complex and changing global world. We are seeking students who can rise for this challenge and who share our drive and ambition. We need your passion, your creativity, and your dreams so we can together plan, for you, a good future.

General Education Curriculum Components:
The General Education core courses provide our students with a multidisciplinary education framework based on U.S. higher education requirements. The General Education subject areas include Communications, Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Mathematics. The American University of Tunisia targets six college level competencies, based on the VALUE rubrics developed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU) that represents the foundation of the general education and core courses. The AACU is a national association headquartered in Washington, D.C., United States that focuses on improving undergraduate education and advancing liberal education.
