The Faculty of Engineering (FE) at Beirut Arab University was established in recognition of the national and regional need for engineering education in 1975. The Faculty initially offered two degree programs providing opportunities for formal course of study in Electrical and Civil Engineering. It offers a Bachelor and Master of Engineering Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Communications and Electronics Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electric Power and Machines Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Petroleum Engineering. In a collaborating effort to provide students with the opportunity to participate in practical projects that exhibit and demonstrate their skills and knowledge, the faculty established mutual incorporation and contacts with various industrial stakeholders. One aspect of this mutual interaction was the instigation of the Engineering Day in 1997. This event involved all faculty, staff and students to display the students respective work projects. The Engineering Day became an annual event in Lebanon to celebrate the faculty's mission of teamwork and creativity. In 2002, the faculty expanded its postgraduate programs further by incorporating a PhD program in all of its four major fields of specialization.
