Mechanical Engineering Program


Program Description

Mechanical Engineering is a professional discipline that addresses the utilization of technological and scientific know-how to advance the efficiency, safety, utility and reliability of mechanical and thermal systems for the benefit of humanity. Nowadays, engineering is more interdisciplinary, team-oriented, and environmentally sensitive than ever before.

This program encompasses the traditional roles of Mechanical Engineering in areas of analysis, design, manufacturing, and testing of mechanical and thermal systems (i.e., boilers, steam plants, heat exchangers, hydraulic systems, refrigeration, etc.), while also including emphasis in system integration, propulsion systems, concurrent engineering, and other competitive engineering practices. Design to manufacture considers additional elements such as consumer satisfaction, time to market, and others.

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.

  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Career Path

Graduates from the Mechanical Engineering program may start their career path at public or private organizations, such as

  • Local municipalities

  • Ministry of Defense

  • Ministry of Transport and Communication

  • Ministry of Regional Municipalities and Water Resources

  • Engineering Divisions in other ministries

  • Petroleum Development Oman (PDO)
