Department Overview:

The Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Program at MU offers a curriculum that is specially designed not only to distinguish itself from the curricula offered at other Saudi universities but also to be on a par with international Universities.

Mathematics is a fundamental language of the program. College students will also gain extensive integrated laboratory, computer and design experiences. Communication, teamwork, and practical hands-on experience with various product design processes are other important elements of a program.


The program put emphasis on three major areas: thermal power, design and production and industrial engineering. Thermal power places emphasis upon thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics power plants and refrigeration and air-conditioning. Design and production places emphasis upon material science, machine elements design, mechanics of materials, machine dynamics, welding Technology. Industrial engineering places emphasis upon reliability engineering, computer aided manufacturing, operations management, production planning, industrial management, facility design and material handling, lean manufacturing and quality engineering.
