INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS
TECHNOLOGIES

CIVIL AND INFRASTRUCTURE ENGINEERING
CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING AND
INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT (CEIM),
prepares students to become effective managers and

decision-makers familiar with the modern techniques of
construction management, engineering management
and infrastructure management. It trains professionals to
play a leading role in the international construction
industry. It molds students to become active leaders in
the infrastructure development and management.
Students may choose to either specialize in Construction
Engineering and Management (CEM) or Infrastructure
Management (IM).

GEOTECHNICAL AND EARTH RESOURCES
ENGINEERING (GTE), beside the traditional topics of

soil mechanics, foundation engineering, earth structures,

DISASTER PREPAREDNESS MITIGATION AND
MANAGEMENT (DPMM), recent intense occurrences of

disasters all over the earth leading to massive loss of life and

destruction of infrastructure have grabbed the attention of the
world. Receiving less attention is disaster risk management the know-how to prepare for such disasters and to reduce
their effects. The academicians and practitioners at AIT, and its
partner institutions are determined to contribute more toward
bringing this know-how to disaster managers and
engineers.The aim of this academic program is to instill the
necessary interdisciplinary capacities to manage and
minimize the effects of disasters in people on the front lines of
disaster response and applicants with engineering, architecture, natural and social science, as well as management
backgrounds.

OFFSHORE TECHNOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT (OTM),
for more than three decades, the rapid development of oil and
gas industry is not accompanied with the development of

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING (STE), has always been

seen as one of the few professions where one can combine
real technical skills with artistic flair. Structural engineers are
known to be people who
enjoy innovation, opportunities, responsibility and
excitement, whilst working
within a creative profession.
Structural engineers plan
and design various structures
such as buildings, bridges,
dams, sport stadiums, towers,
and underground structures. STE offers two areas of specialization, Structural Analysis, Mechanics and Computation, and
Structural Design and Materials.

TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING (TRE), program

exposes students to the process of alleviating transportation
problems. The coursework and research in the area

(GEPG).

skilled human resources in the region. The program of
this first kind of regional post-graduate study in Offshore
Technology and Management is designed to combine
the application-oriented course works, field studies and
internships, by which graduates are expected to be equipped
with high skills and knowledge-and-practice-readiness to
mitigate the shortages of skilled manpower in the upstream
sector of oil and gas industry (E&P). As an industrial
application-oriented program, OTM with its unique characteristics offers flexible study structure which allows students to
build their own area of specialization besides those
recommended areas.

program imparts education and training toward an
understanding of the complexity of water use and water
resources management problems. It

the curricula of
Telecommunications
(TC), Computer Science,
an d I n form a ti on
Management (CSIM).
With strong emphasis
on communications
aspects rather than
on the aggregation of
hardware, software, networks, equipment and related
industries, ICT recognizes the important role of information
services and applications in the creation of a complete ICT
infrastructure.

government policies to maximize the benefits resulting from
the wide-spread use of these technologies; improving the
strategic management of information resources in business,
government, and non-profit organizations and increasing the
productivity and creativity of managers and executives who
work with information resources.

REMOTE SENSING AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION
SYSTEMS (RSGIS), comprising Remote Sensing (RS),

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global

Positioning System (GPS) provides extremely useful tools for
environmental and natural resources management. They are
widely recognized as supporting tools for the planning,
monitoring, and management of the appropriate utilization of
resources at the country, regional and global levels. RSGIS
welcomes students from other schools who are interested
in attending some subjects that demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of the applications of geoinformatics or
space technologies.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS (TC), program offers areas

of specialization in wireless communication, digital communication, network planning, data communication and mobile

INFORMATION MANAGEMENT (IM), is an essential

resource for academic excellence, competitiveness in
business and industry, scientific progress, and national
development. Like
any other resource,
information must be
managed. The Information Management
curriculum
is
designed to prepare
students to respond
to four basic challenges confronting organizations today: Planning the effective
use of information and utilization of communication technologies within organizations; Developing corporate and

network. The courses offered emphasize modern telecommunications skills in systems planning and engineering, telecommunications software development, and administrative and
financial aspects of telecommunications management.
Graduates from the master's program form the nucleus for
effective high-level technical planning and management
operations at their employer organizations. Some of the
graduates are engaged in planning, development, and service
activities leading to the installation, commissioning, management, design etc. of value-added systems.
