“The Polytechnic offers engineering and other courses,” so the saying goes. It is just a tongue-in-cheek way of acknowledging the indelible prominence of the Faculty of Engineering among the faculties at the Polytechnic. Offering a total of 41 diplomate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate courses, the faculty has by far the largest number of programs—it’s not even close! Currently, these programs are designed to offer student the opportunity to really specialize in the branch of engineering that they feel passionate about, including, for instance, mining, electronics and computer engineering, etc. Conveniently, the faculty is organized into four departments: civil, electrical, mechanical and mining. The faculty has entered mutually beneficial relationships with other universities such as Rice University in Houston, Texas, United States.
