ACM Signs Articulation Agreement with AUM

Students can achieve Bachelor’s two years after completing their diploma

The American College of the Middle East (ACM) signed an articulation agreement with the American University of the Middle East (AUM), allowing the full transfer of credit hours from the college to the university after the students have obtained their diploma. This agreement will allow ACM graduates wishing to continue their higher education to acquire their Bachelor’s degree and then Master’s to do so without losing any credit hours. ACM students are entitled to apply for the transfer after completing two academic years at the college and obtaining their diploma, after which they will be awarded the Bachelor’s degree further to successfully completing two academic years at AUM.

Achieving Bachelor’s degree in two years

The Engineering Technology and Business Administration programs included in the agreement are Electrical Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, Industrial Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology, Accounting, Financial Services, Human Resources Management, and Marketing. The agreement creates a smooth pathway for students who have successfully completed their education at the college to fully transfer the credits they acquired in their field, thus allowing them to acquire their Bachelor’s degree from AUM in a period of two academic years.
For example, an ACM graduate who holds a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology can now achieve a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and become an engineer in two years.

International Programmatic Accreditations

This is another solid recognition for the quality of programs offered at ACM, which adhere to top-notch international quality standards. The Diploma degree programs in Industrial Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology and Electrical Engineering Technology have been accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, which is the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. Moreover, the Business Administration degree offered by the Department of Business Administration at the American College of the Middle East has been officially accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) in the following concentrations: Accounting, Financial Service, Human Resource Management, and Marketing.

This collaboration reflects the educational philosophy of the American College of the Middle East, which revolves around the students, as its main objective is to create more opportunities for their future that enhance their educational and professional goals and allow them to expedite progress and development in the society.
