Welcome to Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The Mechanical Engineering Program is of four years duration. The College started implementing this program starting from Fall 2015. The program has some small components in entrepreneurship, technical English, communication, and the core requirements for Mechanical Engineering program.

The Mechanical Engineering Program was designed in line with it the College mission of continuous strive for excellence and fulfill of the needs of human resources for the country's industrialization process in the coming decades of an increasingly competitive world, and, thus play an important role in supporting Oman's goal of sustained industrialization.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering prepares specialists engineers, leaders, entrepreneurs and researchers to take leadership roles in the fields of Mechanical, Manufacturing, thermo fluids and thermodynamics, and related engineering professions with skills to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to the related engineering challenges.

The programs in the department are offered through a variety of coursework which provides a solid foundation and technical expertise in the engineering sciences and management skills. The coursework needing to analyze, plan, design, construct and maintain facilities such as Design, Mechanical product innovation, CAD/CAM, CIM, Material and manufacturing, Instrumentation and measurements, Industrial project managements, Finite element analysis, Quality control.

Through these programs, the students gain a comprehensive civil and related engineering knowledge through theory, practical work and real-life projects which enable them to contribute to the growth of Sultanate of Oman.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Middle East College offers the following program:
BEng (Hons) - Mechanical Engineering
The department is always committed to provide a platform to students for technically and socially relevant activities, the department has “Musical Club” and “Mechanical Engg Club” which carry out extra-curricular activities throughout the year in coordination with the Students Experience Office of the college. 
The department has a dedicated team of faculty and staff who are technically competent and experienced to help the students meet the challenges of the ever demanding program. The department has excellent lab facilities in:
  • Mechanical workshop
  • Welding workshop
  • Materials Lab
  • Thermodynamic lab
  • Thermo fluid lab
  • CAD/CAM lab
  • CAD (equipped with software like AutoCAD, Finite element analysis.
  • Strength of material Lab

These laboratories provide the students with opportunities for activity-based / problem based learning and motivate students to link their theoretical knowledge, assisted by real time projects, to practical issues of the field.

  • Well established laboratories suitable for research and consultancy activities.
  • Very active research environment with regular and excellent research publications in journals and international conferences by staff
  • Students also active in research as manifested by their papers in International conferences
  • Industrial visits, to enhance the learning experience. Total 08 visits were arranged involving 04 modules in each semester. 
  • Society oriented live diploma projects related to society carried out by students, including on aspects like sustainability
  • Student members in professional societies such as ACME.
The department has plans to start more UG programs in Mechanical engineering allied fields. The department also plans to set up a devoted team to work on the latest research in Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing, and Industrial Engineering. To achieve this objective, modern laboratory facilities, supported by a strong team of faculty members and admin staff, are in place to align with the mission and vision of the college. The department is also planning to strengthen links with industry to enable students to complete their internships at reputed organisations.
