Faculty of Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering is one of the first faculties that were established at Albaha University. The Faculty has five scientific departments: Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Architecture and Computer Engineering. Each department has a program that grant a bachelor's degree in engineering. The Faculty seeks to provide its students with a distinctive learning environment that contributes to the preparation of highly qualified engineers to contribute to the development of the Kingdom.

Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

Overview

Mechanical engineering is still the major specialty of all engineering sciences, accounting for more than 70 percent of the science. Today, mechanical engineering is a leading specialty in the exploration of new knowledge and technologies, whether through innovations in energy systems, cooling and heating systems, vehicle design, aeronautics and space, and biomedical devices, or through research to find new methods and processes for the production of materials Advanced, nanoscale devices, intelligent software designs, and clean energy.

Objectives

The program educational objectives (PEOs) support the missions of the college as well as the university. The PEOs for the Mechanical Engineering Department are:

  1. Provide society with mechanical engineering graduates with a broad scientific, technical knowledge and skills to enable them to work professionally in analysis, design and realization of mechanical systems.
  2. Have the skills needed to perform effectively in multidisciplinary teams.
  3. Provide graduates with the skills of scientific communication to complete graduate studies and specialized training.
  4. Practice professional and ethical responsibilities towards the profession and society.

Outcomes

The following are the department students outcomes:

  1. The ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering appropriate to the discipline.
  2. The ability to design and conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data.
  3. The ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.
  4. The ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  5. The ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. The understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. The ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a societal context.
  9. The recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. Knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. The ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

Potential Jobs

The student represents the main priority of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, where our students have all our interest. The department works with all its members and its potential to produce students with a special place in the industrial establishments, which appears in their jobs in various engineering sectors such as power plants, desalination plants, Iron and steel companies, basic industries companies, petroleum refining and petrochemical companies, and other government and private sectors. Graduates of the mechanical engineering program can find jobs in research and development of new products, design of systems and equipment, supervision of production, maintenance, management, engineering sales and testing. The mechanical engineer can work in engineering, plastics, aerospace and materials manufacturing.
