The university seeks to equip its students with a solid intellectual and academic foundation supported by career-specific skills, professional behavior, and ethical values. This is achieved by encouraging students to develop knowledge beyond education by providing them with a genuine learning experience.
The university adopts a Learner-Centered Approach, which focuses on understanding the learner in the context of a well-crafted learning experience. Students are the focus of the learning approach and they benefit from an optimal and holistic experience.
The AUM curriculum is a reflection of its educational philosophy. It orbits around four compatible well- integrated components that assist students in a creative learning process.
- “Foundations and Theories”: This component equips students with a solid academic foundation and helps them develop their conceptual and intellectual abilities through classroom learning experience, innovative lecture delivery, and various modes of learning and assessment delivery methods.
- “Experiential Learning”: This component aims at developing the students’ technical know-how by engaging them in practical application through project based, problem based, and experiential learning experience delivered in various settings including, but not limited to, classrooms, labs, workshops, various centers, and internships.
- “Soft Skills”: This component aims at developing the students’ behavioral, interpersonal, and organizational skills. AUM encourages student clubs and extracurricular activities in sports, sciences, arts, and social development. This is in addition to the core Liberal Arts component of the curriculum with its various courses and activities.
- “Research and Creativity”: This component favors the development of the students’ innovative, independent and critical thinking skills. The faculty members’ experience and their involvement in research guide students through the processes of discovery, interpretation, and the development of new methods and systems.
