The University Requirements make 9.7% of the total credit hours.

• Mathematics Courses give the following knowledge, understanding and skills:

Institute requirements provide students with the knowledge and skills that are essential to develop a successful engineer. The Institute core that is common to all credit hours programs is implemented through:

d) Acquiring knowledge in mathematical and analytical methods.

e) The ability to reason about and conceptualize engineering components, systems or processes using analytical methods as related to the Electronic Engineering and Communication Technology.

f) The ability to analyze and model engineering components, systems and processes specific to the Electronic Engineering and Communication Technology.

g) The skill of using probability and statistical methods.

• Basic Sciences Courses give the following knowledge, understanding and skills:

e) Acquiring knowledge of physics, chemistry, mechanics, earth sciences, biological sciences and other specific subjects which focus on understanding the physical world.

f) The ability to select and apply scientific principles in practical problem solving.

g) The ability to analyze, model and reason about engineering components, systems or processes using principles and knowledge of the basic sciences as applicable in each engineering disciplinary context.

h) The ability to adopt scientific evidence-based techniques in problems solving.

• Engineering Culture Courses give the following knowledge, understanding and skills:

a) Acquiring knowledge in the areas related to different engineering trends.

b) The ability to overview basic knowledge about different engineering specializations.

The Institute Requirements (Mathematics, Basic Science, and Engineering Culture Courses) courses are unified for all of the programs of the Modern Academy. They consist of fiftteen (15) courses with 40 credits (24.24 % of total 165 credits), as listed in table 2.
