Al Dhafra Region and Abu Dhabi Downtown (Subject to CAA approval)
Mechanical Engineering is a dynamic field that encompasses the engineering aspects of almost everything that moves in the universe. In this program you will deal with the design, construction and operations of machinery involved in some of the world’s most pressing challenges related to energy, environment, robotics and advanced manufacturing, transportation on the ground, in the air, on and under water and in outer space.

The program will uniquely qualify you to design and test wide-ranging solutions for state-of-the-art mechanical systems and emphasizes a number of areas of technology including aerospace, thermal power, materials and manufacturing and mechatronics. It includes a foundation of mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering courses. Several technical electives allow you to focus on an area of specialization. 

Through the Dynamics and Control Systems laboratory and the Manufacturing laboratory you will have access to the latest tools and technologies, explore the wider context of engineering, as well as the application of advanced engineering principles to solve problems through research and development.
  • Career Prospects

    A large number of organizations in both the private and public sectors require mechanical engineers. These include the oil sector, power generation and distribution companies, the robotics industry, automotive and manufacturing industries and aerospace organizations.
