NTE Courses

Non-Technical Elective courses existing in all 13 engineering curricula are intended to serve in meeting the following objectives of the education of engineering students and the engineering profession:

  • To be aware of their humanistic, social, and environmental responsibilities,
  • To be able to consider these factors in their professional decision-making processes,
  • To be exposed to a broad spectrum of disciplines other than science and engineering, and
  • To be able to establish a sound communication with professionals other than engineers.

The courses taught in the Middle East Technical University which are considered to be in this catagory are listed below according to the departments offering them
