School of Science and Engineering

Welcome to the School of Science and Engineering at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane!  I hope that you can come visit us on our beautiful campus in the Middle Atlas Mountains! 

We offer a world-class education that will prepare you to succeed in your career, wherever it takes you.  By the time you graduate from AUI, you will be able to work in three languages: English, French, and Arabic.  Our students interact closely with faculty who have a broad variety of recognized research and international experience.  Through AUI’s small classes, many projects, and emphasis on communication skills, you will be technically proficient, socially responsible, and possess the high ethical character and entrepreneurial spirit expected of tomorrow’s leading professionals.  Your degree from SSE prepares you for graduate studies as well as professional practice. 

Employers seek out our students for permanent employment, internships, conventions de stage, and capstone design.  AUI students learn to work collaboratively in teams, manage projects, and apply what they learn in the classroom.  They take advantage of opportunities to learn abroad and gain better cultural understanding and gain wider perspectives.  Our students understand the detail as well as the big picture.  SSE graduates work in Morocco and in countries around the globe. 

Our graduates frequently pursue advanced degrees.  Many pursue masters degrees, and a good number have completed their doctorates at prestigious international universities. 

There is much more information on the SSE webpages, so please browse!   

Please feel free to arrange a visit!  I would love to meet you and show you around SSE!
