The degree of Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSc in MEEN) is awarded for successfully completing the requirements of a program of study, which includes taught courses as well as thesis. The thesis is an independent investigation of specialized areas within the general field of mechanical engineering and associated disciplines. The MSc degree gives candidates the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in the broad field of MEEN and contribute to the process of discovery and knowledge creation through the conduct of original research. Candidates for this degree are taught and supervised by experienced faculty and are expected to demonstrate initiative in their approach and innovation in their work. In addition to successfully completing the taught course component of the program, candidates prepare and present a thesis on their chosen area. Research may be undertaken in several topics corresponding to the areas of focus identified by the University.

Career Opportunities

The Mechanical Engineering program offers world-class graduate-level engineering education and research opportunities. Being highly versatile in core courses and electives, the MSc program in Mechanical Engineering has earned the reputation of being one of the strongest, largest, and best equipped across the Middle East. It nurtures a highly supportive, interdisciplinary atmosphere where students can work collaboratively with experts in the fields of materials, aerospace, chemical, petroleum and biomechanical engineers as well as science and medical programs.  It attracts students with a background in Mechanical Engineering and related disciplines of engineering and science and cultivates them with unmatched academic and research expertise to lead projects in various high tech industries, such as energy and the environment, structures, manufacturing, micro- and nano-technologies, health and biomechanics, as well as industrial automation and the internet of things.  Graduates include outstanding researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, industrial leaders as well as strong independent academic scholars.
