Mechanical Engineering Program

Program Description

The program of mechanical engineering aims to prepare and provide the workforce for different sectors of industry, power generation, central air conditioning systems, automotive maintenance, renewable energy, and plumbing systems (supply of clean water to facilities and removal of waste water). The program has 136 credit hours, which can be divided into four categories as general university requirements, college requirements, program requirements, and program electives.

Admission Requirements

For direct entry into the College of Engineering, the student should have General Education Diploma (12th standard) or certified equivalent with overall score of C and minimum of grade D in Pure Mathematics, English and (Physics or Chemistry).

The student should also successfully complete the General Foundation program with an overall score of 65% in the following areas:

  • English proficiency 

  • Study skills

  • Math

  • Information Technology

  1. To be exempted from the GFP (English Component), a minimum score of 5.00 in IELTS certificate or equivalent is required.

  2. To be exempted from the GFP (IT Component), an ICDL Certificate in English or its equivalent is required.

Program Objectives
  • Graduates are expected to succeed in a career as mechanical engineers.

  • Graduates are expected to contribute to society through research or professional and ethical practice in Mechanical Engineering.

Student Outcomes
  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.

  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.

  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.

  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
