Overview

The department of Mechanical Engineering (MCE) offers a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering in four years with a total of 150 credits.

Mechanical engineering deals with the design, development and manufacturing of machinery. Such machinery ranges from condensers and chillers utilized to provide thermal comfort and acceptable air quality, to internal and external combustion engines used for mobile propulsion in automobiles and for power generation in power plants, to rotating and static equipment employed in the oil and gas industry.

Program Educational Objectives

The educational objective of the Mechanical Engineering (MCE) program is to yield individuals who:
  • Design, operate, and manage mechanical systems.
  • Tackle new issues by adapting new technologies and paradigms or by proposing new solutions after performing systematical investigation on the state of the art developments.
  • Participate in a team and communicate their knowledge, ideas and views.
  • Respect environmental aspects, ethical and technology standard, economical concerns, and society values.

Program Outcome Objectives

  • 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 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 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 develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
