The college consists of three departments:
Department of Civil Engineering
Department of Civil Engineering was established at the Faculty of Applied Engineering and Urban Planning at University of Palestine in 2005 to be one of the most important honorable departments with its outstanding quality and specialties.
Department of Civil Engineering includes two major disciplines: construction management engineering, geographical information system (GIS) and Geomatics.
Department of Architecture
The Department of Architecture was founded in 2005. Students of this department get bachelor of architecture degree after the completion of (163) credit hours. In response to the needs of the Palestinian community, the Department of Architecture plan to allow students to focus on a background concentrations after the third year; such concentrations include Architectural Design, Interior and Urban Planning. The courses in this department are ranked into the following categories: 30 credit hours for the requirements of the university, college requirements (30) credit hours, and the major requirements (103) credit hours including 45 credit hours of concentration requirements. The Department of Architecture is based on a systematic methodology and a set of objectives.
