King Faisal University

College of Engineering


Mechanical E​​ngineering Program



The Mechanical Engineering program at King Faisal University (KFU) has been since its inception in 1430H (2009) working hard to achieve internationally recognized high quality academic standards. Educational excellence is the central focus of all activities within the program.  Our faculty and staff take great pride in developing a curriculum that provokes students to think deeply, broadly and independently to prepare them to be leaders in engineering and other professions.  The dual emphasis on fundamental concepts and design innovation in our curriculum equips our graduates to address and solve the most complex technological and societal challenges.


Our laboratory facilities are well equipped and well maintained. Our laboratory engineers and technicians are very dedicated and knowledgeable. Students learn all the important practical skills needed by the industries from the laboratory courses offered in the program.


We have multicultural faculty members with wide range of exposure in the academic and in the industry sectors. They stay active in research and periodically publish papers in reputed international academic conferences and in archival journals.


Career opportunities for the mechanical engineering at national and regional levels are very high because the Mechanical Engineering is the broadest and most versatile among all engineering disciplines. Just to name a few, the Mechanical Engineer plays a central role in many industries such as power generation, energy conversion, oil and gas, automotive, manufacturing, microelectromechanical systems, aerospace, and environmental control (HVAC) systems.


We are regularly assessing our program with systematic feedback from our students and alumni, faculty, the department's external team of industrial experts, and the industry employers. The continuous hard work and systematic improvement of the program were culminated by applying for the international accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) in 2014. The ME program has proudly been awarded the ABET accreditation through September 2021. 


I welcome you to the Department of Mechanical Engineering!
