Overview

The Department was established in 1978. Since then, more than 1000 qualified mechanical engineers had graduated. The department graduates are spread inside and outside the Kingdom.  Many of them finished their post graduate degrees and are appointed in well recognized research and academic positions. The department has 26 faculty members who are experts in their fields of specialization. In addition to teaching, the faculty members conduct high quality scientific research which is published in high ranking scientific journals.  The department hosts six laboratories for practical applications to accompany the theoretical material of the curriculum. The undergraduate program accept about 100 students each academic year.

Beside the undergraduate program the department offers Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Mechanical Engineering. The Mechanical Engineering Department witnessed a qualitative improvement in the last few years. Two master programs were established in cooperation with the European Union through the TEMPUS program, namely:

1. Master of Science ( M.Sc.) in Renewable Energy

2. Master of Science ( M.Sc.) in Environmental Engineering and Climate Change

Although the engineering programs offered at the School of Engineering are accredited by the Accreditation Council of the Ministry of Higher Education, the Department of Mechanical Engineering recently attained accreditation from Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). ABET is internationally recognized as a self-sustained system of excellence in undergraduate engineering education.  This accreditation applies for the graduates of the years starting the year 2015 and through the year 2021.  

The mechanical engineering department is seeking to achieve the vision and objectives of our university in teaching; research and community services.
