The College of Engineering at the University of Bahrain owes its roots to the Gulf Technical College, which was established in 1968 and later became the Gulf Polytechnic in February 1981 and consisted of the Colleges of Engineering and Business Administration. In 1986, the Amiri Decree No.(12) was issued to establish the University of Bahrain by a merger of the Gulf Polytechnic and the Bahrain University College. Since then, the college continued to grow in the numbers of programs and students; currently around 4200 students (2015-2016), coming from diverse nationalities and ethnicities, study at the college.

The College of Engineering consists of five departments, namely, Architecture and Interior Design, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. All departments are located in Isa Town campus.

Nine undergraduate programs are offered by the college, namely, Bachelor of Architecture, B.Sc. in Interior Design, Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering, B.Sc. in Civil Engineering, B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, B.Sc. in Electronics Engineering and B.Sc. in Process Instrumentation and Control Engineering. The College also offers M.Sc. and PhD programs in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Management.

Six of our B.Sc. programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org), namely, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Process Instrumentation and Control Engineering. The Architecture program achieved a substantial equivalency by NAAB (http://www.naab.org/) and the Interior Design program is preparing for accreditation by CIDA (http://www.accredit-id.org/).
