The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at American University in Dubai prepares a culturally diverse student population for successful professional careers in mechanical engineering at the local, regional and global levels.


Key facts

To prepare a culturally diverse student body for successful professional careers grounded in strong engineering knowledge, a culture of innovation, and an awareness of the global societal, economic, and environmental contexts within which mechanical engineering decisions are made.

With an emphasis on three key areas: energy systems; mechatronics and control; and manufacturing engineering, the Mechanical Engineering program from American University in Dubai offers a broad range of electives, ranging from internal combustion engines and turbo-machinery to aerodynamics and robotic systems.

From traditional mechanical engineering to cutting edge computer-enabled systems, students benefit from on-going field experience and an interdisciplinary capstone design project which integrates their technical knowledge, communication skills, and professional education to solve real engineering problems.

Our aim is to fully prepare our graduates for careers in the mechanical engineering and for further studies at the postgraduate level.

Within a few years, graduates will…

  • Pursue successful professional careers in mechanical engineering or related fields while remaining technically current through graduate education and professional engagement.
  • Excel as leaders, team members, communicators, and innovators in collaborative multicultural environments.
  • Benefit society by practicing their profession responsibly and ethically, and sharing their knowledge through training and mentorship opportunities.

The 137 credit-hours program will include 15 hours of mechanical engineering electives where students will be exposed to a wide variety of courses in mechanical and thermofluids including Engineering Aerodynamics, Computer-Aided Mechanical Design, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Internal Combustion Engines, Mechatronic Systems, and Design of Robotic Systems.
