The Faculty of Engineering at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU) was established in 1996 by Lebanese Government decree no. 9278 as the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. In 1997 the Architecture program was moved to the newly established Ramez G. Chagoury, Faculty of Architecture, Art and Design (FAAD). The Faculty currently enrolls more than 1400 students in its three Departments and has more than 3000 Alumni around the world.
The Faculty of Engineering endeavors to offer an excellent engineering education fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the top provider of engineering accreditation worldwide. Despite its relatively young age, the Faculty of Engineering at NDU has positioned itself as one of the top engineering schools in Lebanon and the region thanks to the contribution of all: faculty, staff, students, administration and support units/committees. It is the first faculty of engineering in Lebanon to offer ABET-accredited programs at different geographical locations in parallel, namely at the main campus in Zouk-Mosbeh, the North Lebanon campus in Barsa, Koura, and the Shouf campus in Deir-El-Kamar.
All engineering curricula share a strong applied component supported by state of the art laboratory facilities. Beyond the technical expertise, emphasis is also placed on soft skills and the Faculty strives to graduate life-long learners with the right skills in terms of communication and the ability to engage in effective teamwork. All engineering students are subjected to problems and case studies involving issues related to ethics, economics, environment, and social dimensions in general. Furthermore, the Faculty strongly believes in the positive outcomes of extra-curricular activities and pushes its students and faculty members to get involved in services to the community and the profession. To that end, several on-campus chapters of international professional organizations are active in the Faculty.
I invite you to browse through this website and to visit our facilities and meet with engineering faculty members to learn more about engineering at NDU.
