Academic Program Structure
The structure of PMU academic programs follows the North America model that utilizes
the credit hour system as measure of course weight, an intensive bridge program
to prepare entering students for university study, a common academic core curriculum
that forms a common basis for all degree programs, and individual degree majors
that provide the academic specialization and the name of the degree awarded.
Language of Instruction
English is the language of instruction in all degree programs and courses except
those devoted to the study of the Arabic Language and Islamic Studies.
Consistent with the commitment to developing student learning outcomes and competencies,
PMU emphasizes “student oriented” teaching and learning methodologies throughout
all academic programs. Courses utilize independent learning tasks, group and team
based projects, and Research Publications, among other techniques. Information technology
based resources and methods are an important part of the learning process.
Student to Faculty Ratio
PMU is characterized by a learner-centered rather than a teacher-centered approach
to education. The overall student to faculty ration is about 18/1. Class sizes vary
with programs and courses.
The average numbers of students per class are as follows:
||UNIV, ASSE, COMM, MATH
||24 lecture, 20 lab
|Computer Engineering & Sciences
