Afghan Engineers Educational and profissional Center

In this division we design and implement capacity building and development programs, hold conferences and occasions concerned with the equipping of engineers with cotemporary professional trainings. We offer the trainings to individuals that are eager to enrich their understandings and expertise. Moreover, we undertake extensive training programs for companies who are in need of such kind of trainings for their staffs.

The trainings we are providing are certified by credible academic agencies. The materials being taught at AEA are compatible to the market demands; the trainings we offer equip a trainee to be well accepted in engineering entities.
Due to the lack of coordination, cooperation and to an extent conflict of interests among engineering universities, colleges, and institutes, these entities teach a variety of subjects; the engineering codes being taught are different; the methods undertaken varies; and eventually the donors supporting these entities are not streamlining them to act in alignment with the academic goals in a national level.
The universities coordination department at AEA works for the integrating and communicating of Afghan engineering universities. In this department efforts are toward the development of the engineering universities to a direction of market demand and toward an alignment of the national needs to the engineering human resources. The curriculums of every university is evaluated by the educational and professional division the department of universities coordination. In comparison to the prevalent trends in terms of the practicing skills of an engineer required in engineering projects, proper suggestions are made for the universities.
Here, at AEA the department of engineering universities coordination has developed our training materials that have to the possible extent eliminated the conflicts of interests. For instance, a reinforced concrete structural design course is taught by the instructor who is well knows about the details of the materials being taught in various colleges and universities. Accordingly, he has prepared his handouts, references and other supplementary materials so that students could not be confused with the contents of the course that they will take.
Engineering students, technicians on their own behalf or being introduced through their employers are given the chance to be trained. Holding that there is an expressed need for the distinguishing of potential engineering experts, AEA in coordination with other relevant bodies has developed a plan based on which, engineers would be rated.
The trainers at AEA are distinguished credible national universities lecturers. They have higher education from national universities inside the country and abroad. We have trainers in the level of Bachelor, Masters, and Doctorate. The materials that they have prepared for the purpose of teaching is both developed in a manual manner and through the usage of software. Alongside the theory, that has been being taught in our classes, our trainers are taking the students on site to equip them with the practical knowledge of some subjects that are really crucial to be learned.
