The Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The Mechanical Engineering Department is devoted to educating exemplary mechanical engineers by instituting best learning practices that drive knowledge, build skills and competencies, inspire learners to define a purpose, develop a passion to forever learn, cultivate a sense of responsibility toward the profession, society and environment, and attain the ability to confront challenges, and in so doing contribute to the advancement of the community.

The educational objectives of the ME program are determined to support career advancement of the graduates

and as they pursue their career goals, the graduates will:

  1. be competent to handle complex engineering tasks and provide innovative solutions through the integration of best practices.
  2. be recognized for their ability to pursue graduate studies in mechanical engineering and related interdisciplinary areas.
  3. demonstrate leadership in their fields of expertise and service to local and international communities.

Upon completion of the program, graduates shall have developed:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering consists of 150 credit-hours of course work in addition to IC+ 30 credits transferred from Lebanese Baccalaureate or equivalent.

Mechanical engineers attain a broad spectrum of skills sought by almost every profession. Industries, enterprises, and service providers requiring mechanical engineering skills include: power generation and distribution, building and construction, medicine and pharmacology, aerospace, automotive, food, process, security, computers and electronics, renewable energy, consulting, entertainment, water resources, sports, environmental institutions, and government. Most importantly, you can imagine something that never was and make it a reality! There is so much work to be done to guarantee the future of mankind and mechanical engineers can tap the possibilities through the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurism.
