Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering (ME) Department at Alfaisal University!
ME is the second largest and one of the oldest disciplines, as well as the broadest of all engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers apply the principles of mechanics, energy and materials science to the design of machines and devices related to energy production and the use of energy for motion such as Production of Energy, Means of Production and Automation and Tools of Transportation.
Here in the College of Engineering at Alfaisal University, our ME program aims to train high-caliber future mechanical engineers for the Kingdom, not only with solid foundations in the principles of mechanics, energy and materials science, but also with strong capabilities in the applications of the principles to mechanical engineering design and advanced manufacturing. We also involve our students in leading-edge research with our faculty members who are experts in various fields in ME. Our graduates are popular with employers in the Kingdom, and many of them move on to study for higher degrees in overseas prestigious universities.
