With knowledge and diligence, we make a better future

An Overview

In October 1983, the faculty of Engineering was established with the Civil Engineering Department followed by the Electrical Engineering Department. Other departments were launched later on which are the Architecture Engineering Department (1986), the Mechanical Engineering (1993), the Basic Engineering Sciences Department (2008), and the Mechatronics Department (2012). Recently, in 2020, the Biomedical Engineering Department was established to fulfill the demands of labor market. During decades, our faculty kept developing and improving until becoming the best in the country regarding staff, Labs, facilities, scientific research, and students’ scientific level.

Journal of Engineering Sciences

Journal of Engineering Sciences – JES is a semi-annual peer-reviewed journal published by the Faculty of Engineering at Sana’a University. JES publishes articles in all Engineering Science research areas that are related to the faculty's scientific departments.

Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles and methods to solve medical and biological problems

Our Library

The Library of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sanaa contains many references, books, periodicals, scientific research and graduation projects that have a major role in serving all of its students and employees in addition to researchers and scholars in various engineering fields.

The electronic library of the faculty of engineering in Sana’a University, established in January 2019, is considered the first electronic library in the country. The idea of the project came from the fact that the conventional library of the faculty can no longer keep up with the very fast changes and challenges around such as the growing number of students and researchers and the very high cost of buying new books and hard copy journals every year which need to be archived and ordered in a very long process.
