The Mechanical Engineering Department graduates general Mechanical Engineers with possible concentration in one of the following specialisations: Production & Design, Materials & Manufacturing, Power & Energy, Automotive & Aeronautical, and Mechatronics. The concentration is achieved in the last year through 5 optional modules and two graduation projects. However, the student may decide to take a mix of optional modules in different areas.
The strong academic background is supported by seven modern laboratories and two machine shops containing state-of the-art equipment and resources necessary to gain hands-on experience in mechanical engineering. Moreover, students gain practical experience through two industrial training sessions during the summers of second and third years.The mechanical engineering programme is validated by our UK validating partners. Thus, the student obtains two certificates upon graduation; namely BSc from BUE and BSc from partner institution.
The mechanical engineering department has three student organizations in which students participate in social, sports, and other extra-curricula activities. In the last three years, the mechanical engineering students participated in international competitions and won six prizes in USA, Jordan, and Lebanon.
