Other courses

Engineering Ethics from Islamic Perspective (GENE 4300)
This course relates religion, ethics and important themes of humanity and nature to engineering studies. The central theme of this course is to relate Engineering Professionalism to Islamic ethical foundations.  The course also focuses on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the different industrial hazards and disasters that may affect human lives and the ecological system. In a nutshell, the course is designed to infuse religious and ethical conscious into Muslim future engineers.

Values, Technology and Society (RKGS 6000/6001)
Lessons from the past Muslim achievements in science and technology; comprehend the social, economic and political impacts of technology in the Muslim world; Islamic worldview and valuesof science and technology development.

Islamization of Engineering Studies (RKGS 7000)
This course focuses on the intellectual content of “Islamization of Knowledge”. Attention will be given to the role of Islam in the development of engineering sciences within the perspectives of morality. Topics to be discussed include: the role of revelation and reason on engineering studies, the Islamic paradigm of knowledge and methods of Islamizing engineering studies.
