The Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering at AUC prepares students for higher level professional practice in local and international markets.
The objectives of the Master of Engineering Degree are to provide the graduates of the program with:
- A broad knowledge of modern computational and experimental methods in engineering.
- Detailed knowledge in engineering design, materials and manufacturing, industrial engineering, power and mechatronics.
- Awareness of the local and global context in which mechanical engineering is practiced, locally and globally, including economic and business practices, societal needs, and considerations of public health, safety, environment, culture and ethics.
- An ability to solve unstructured engineering problems, think critically, function well in a team, and communicate effectively.
- A high standard of written and oral communication on technical matters.
Admission requirements are the same as those for the Master of Science Program.
Courses (33 credit hours)
Course work for the Master of Engineering degree requires the completion of a minimum of 33 credit hours as follows:
I- Core Courses (9 Credits)
Students must complete two courses from Group A and one course from Group B:
II- Mechanical Engineering Technical Elective Courses (9 Credits)
Students should select a minimum of three courses from the following elective courses:
III- General Electives Courses (12 credit hours)
Students may elect to take four courses (12 credits). A minimum of two courses must be taken from offerings in the School of Sciences and Engineering, including mechanical engineering or engineering disciplines (ENGR). Out of these four courses, a maximum of two 4000-level courses may be taken for graduate credit. The General Electives course selection requires the approval of the advisor and the department chair.
IV- Capstone project (3 credits)
Students are required to undertake an engineering project approved by the chair of the supervisory committee, which consists of the student advisor and two additional faculty members. A final report that has been reviewed for its technical writing quality is submitted and orally defended in the presence of the supervisory committee.
