Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers utilize their knowledge and skills across a wide range of industries. They play a major role in the design, manufacturing and maintenance of complex engineering systems.

The demand for mechanical engineers in the UAE will expand as the amount of manufacturing and industrial activity continues to grow. The design, manufacturing and support processes for mechanical devices ranging from automotive parts to power plants require mechanical engineers, making them employable across diverse multiple industries.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Khalifa University strives to ensure its graduates are well-equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills when they begin their professional career. Khalifa University Mechanical Engineering students are able to put their education to practice. Check out this video of KU's Baja team who recently designed and built an off-road car to compete against universities from all over the world.
