About the Program



The Mechanical Engineering program strives for providing quality services through close partnership with the community by demonstrating commitment to: 

v Quality education that prepares graduates through a project-based learning with broad basic
 engineering knowledge to be professionals and to pursue postgraduate studies and research. 

v Quality research that leads to better solutions to mechanical engineering-related problems with
 emphasis on issues of national significance by working closely with industry and research centers.

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):

Within a few years of graduation, Mechanical Engineering graduates are expected to attain the following program educational objectives:

v Become technically competent engineers for a successful and productive career                                                  in the mechanical engineering profession, OR ​

v   Pursue graduate studies and research in mechanical engineering, AND

v   Demonstrate effective communication and teamwork skills in a diverse environment with an integrative             perspective to solving mechanical engineering problems, AND

v   Engage in  life-long learning for the purpose of continuous improvement.
