I am delighted to welcome you to the Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) at Alfaisal University. Whether you are planning, beginning, or continuing your educational journey with us, I hope you will find the information you are looking for on our webpages. At ME, our students and faculty are passionate about teaching and learning. We pride ourselves on the low student-to-faculty ratio allowing for close interactions between faculty and students, opens opportunities for vigorous, hands-on education and supervised undergraduate research. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops as well as world-class faculty to create a conducive environment for student development and student clubs. ME students are key members of an award-winning racing team which design and build race cars, right here in the department. These make ME truly unique. To prepare future-ready mechanical engineers, the department is offering the Digital Design and Manufacturing concentration. Students opting for this track can tailor their coursework with electives spanning from product design and development to data mining offered by the Industrial Engineering Department. This interdisciplinary education, I believe, will give an edge to future ME graduates as they seek to be leaders in their fields. For students who wish to have a more rigorous multidisciplinary education, ME department has also initiated a minor in mechanical engineering for students enrolled in Industrial Engineering program. Furthermore, ME students can opt for a minor in Industrial Engineering. These minors are excellent pathways for students to prepare themselves as innovators in both mechanical and industrial engineering disciplines. The future looks bright for ME. I invite you to learn more about ME on our website. Or better yet, join us!
