Study System

FIBH study programs duration are 4 years duration, where the last year requires a graduation project. The 4 years programs are based on a solid collaboration between faculty of engineering and Faculty of Business and Humanities (FIBH). This collaboration provides a solid ground for convergence between technological and business and humanities education and will require big changes, not just in curriculum but in the culture of how business and engineering students and faculty learn and interact, and the first and most important step for that is to establish FIBH. The important value added for technology-based businesses is the development of graduates who can develop real answers to real problems. Real answers are not solely technologically feasible but can be implemented with a realistic and credible business approach. Business and engineering students will learn together to understand that business and market success result when a diversely educated group of students work together where everyone adds value to the end result. The study in FIBH undergraduate programs is in credit hours and full time mode.

The academic year is divided into three semesters:
Fall semester, starts at the beginning of the fourth week of September and continues for 15 weeks, excluding mid-term and final examinations.
Spring semester, starts at the beginning of the third week of February and continues for 15 weeks, excluding mid-term and final examinations.
Summer semester, which is a condensed semester, starts at the beginning of the first week of July and continues for 6 weeks, excluding mid-term and final examinations.

The student is not allowed to attend the final exam of a course unless he attended at least 75% of the study hours of each course. In this case, the student will be considered as ―Forced Withdrawn‖ and the course will appear in his certificate as (FW), and will not be accounted in calculating the CGPA. Full time laboratory attendance is a must since education is based on Lab Based Learning/ Project Based Learning.

Course codes

The undergraduate courses are coded according to the following scheme:

AAA N1 N2 N3

AAA: The Track offering the course
N1: A digit indicating level in which the course is taught (1-4).
N2: A digit indicating the semester of the course offering
N3: A digit indicating the sequence of the courses among its specialized group in the semester within which it is taught

Track Code
Accounting and Information Technology ACC
Entrepreneurship and SME ENT
Human Resources Management HRM
Investment and Finance FIN
Marketing for the knowledge Economy MKT
Cross Culture and Japanese Studies CRC

The final grade and the grade point in a course are based on the total aggregate of marks earned from all activities done in the course including periodicals, practical, oral, and final written exam as shown in the study plan tables. The minimum success limit for a student to pass is 50% and the student must attain minimum 30% of the final written examination marks. Final grades for courses shall be recorded as follows:

Percentage marks Grades
≥ 95% Excellent 4.00 A+
≥ 90% -less than 95% 3.70 A
≥ 85%-less than 90% Very good 3.30 B+
≥ 80%-less than 85% 3.00 B
≥ 75%-less than 80% Good 2.70 C+
≥ 70%-less than 75% 2.30 C
≥ 65%-less than 70% Pass 2.00 D+
≥ 60%-less than 65% 1.70 D
Less than 60% Fail 1.00 F
