The Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence of­fers two op­tions – the en­gi­neer­ing op­tion and the non- en­gi­neer­ing op­tion for stu­dents who are in­ter­ested in health sci­ence.

The ba­sic mod­ules for both op­tions cover English, math­e­mat­ics, chem­istry and physics.

Stu­dents who choose the en­gi­neer­ing op­tion will also study stat­ics, physics and dy­nam­ics. For non- en­gi­neer­ing op­tions, fo­cus will be given to bi­ol­ogy and bio­chem­istry.

The en­gi­neer­ing op­tion leads to de­grees such as civil, me­chan­i­cal, elec­tri­cal and elec­tron­ics, and au­to­mo­bile en­gi­neer­ing.

The non- en­gi­neer­ing field of­fers stu­dents de­gree op­tions in the fields of phar­macy, food sci­ence, biotech­nol­ogy, agri­cul­ture and many more.

The Foun­da­tion in Arts also pro­vides two op­tions. The ar­chi­tec­ture op­tion re­quires stu­dents to fo­cus on ar­chi­tec­tural draw­ing ( in­clud­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion of Au­to­CAD), among other ba­sics.

The other op­tion is for stu­dents who are in­ter­ested in busi­ness stud­ies, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and lan­guage stud­ies.

The com­pul­sory ba­sic mod­ules in­clude com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem and com­puter ap­pli­ca­tions.
