Mechanical engineering Department: (Manufacturing, Mechatronics, Aerospace, Thermal Power)
Mechanical engineers deal with the design, construction and operation of machinery. It encompasses all engineering aspects of almost everything that moves in the universe such as cars, airplanes, hovercrafts, submarines, and space ships. Mechanical engineers help address and solve some of the world's most pressing important issues and problems such as energy, environment, robotics, advanced manufacturing, transportation on the ground, in the air, in and under water and in outer space. It is a major where both male and female students excel.
The B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering program at Abu Dhabi University has been developed according to International standards. This ensures that graduates of the program will be uniquely qualified to design, analyze, and test wide-ranging solutions for state-of-the-art mechanical systems. The program provides Mechanical Engineering students with the opportunity to learn through a combination of conceptual and practical knowledge. This combination will enable the students to sharpen the skills of innovation and critical thinking and apply it to a variety of real mechanical engineering problems. Students also learn how to diagnose problems and develop a variety of solutions.
The program curriculum has been designed to provide a balanced education in the design, analysis and hands on experience. It is a challenging four-year curriculum that integrates courses in mathematics, physics and mechanical engineering to produce a professional engineer capable of designing and analyzing all aspects of modern mechanical systems. The program emphasizes a number of areas of technology including aerospace, thermal power, materials and manufacturing and mechatronics.
The vision of the department of Mechanical Engineering at Abu Dhabi University is to be recognized nationally and regionally as one of the leading programs in education and research in mechanical engineering.
The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department is to provide students with a premium education through a well-prepared curriculum; to equip the graduates with knowledge and skills to successfully practice mechanical engineering in the workplace; to peruse postgraduate studies, and to provide them with the awareness of the current and emerging industrial practices through students' participation in industrial internship experiences.
