” The School of Engineering sets a new standards for excellence in engineering education and research. We achieve this ambitious goal and by instilling our teaching and research with an interdisciplinary perspective and a greater understanding of the impact of technology on society ”

Prof. Mousa Mohsen

Dean, School of Engineering

Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering

Overview

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at AURAK offers two degree programs at the undergraduate level: Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. Both programs offered by the department are accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation at the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The two program’s faculties are committed to high-quality engineering education as well as the program’s educational objectives.

Mechanical engineering program deals with anything that moves, including the human body and a very complexmachine. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as automotive; aerospace; biotechnology; computers and electronics; MEMS; energy conversion; environmental control; automation; and manufacturing.

The industrial engineering curriculum covers the principal concepts of engineering economics and project management, facilities planning, human performance, mathematical and simulation modeling, production control, applied statistics and quality, and contemporary production processes that are applied to solve the challenges presented by the global environment and economy of today. The curriculum stresses the application of contemporary tools and techniques in solving engineering problems.

Jobs after graduation

If you are technically-minded, good at solving problems and want a professional role in engineering, then mechanical engineering could be ideal for you. As a mechanical engineer you would design and specify mechanical machinery, components and tools. You could also be in charge of the technicians that will install and maintain the machinery and components. You might work in a range of industries, for example manufacturing, construction, power, medicine and health, transport and sports.

As a mechanical engineer your work would be divided into four key areas:

  • Research and development – assessing new products and innovations, and building prototypes
  • Design – turning research into technical plans using computer aided design/modeling (CAD/CAM) programs
  • Production – improving processes, and overseeing the installation of machinery and parts.
  • Design, fabrication, maintenance and testing of thermal systems in oil and gas companies.
  • Running and controlling power stations and energy saving systems in power and distillations plants.

Facilities

The Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department hosts four labs that are equipped with some of the finest instruments to be utilized for the department needs and students’ projects.

Materials Sciences Laboratory

The Materials Science Laboratory is used to conduct tests to identify materials, study their mechanical properties, and analyze product and process failures through mechanical testing as well as microstructural examination. Laboratory is qualified to study microstructure of materials and to produce large spectrum of heat treatment processes.

The major equipment in the material laboratory includes:

  • Impact testing unit.
  • Torsion testing machine.
  • Fatigue testing machine.
  • Creep machine.
  • Microhardness tester.
  • Digriper (Polishing and Grinding Machine).
  • Micracut
  • Metallurgical microscope.

  • Furnace – Small (0-3000)
  • Plantory pot mill.
  • Hydraulic press.

     

Manufacturing Process Laboratory

The Manufacturing Laboratory is equipped with a variety of conventional and computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools in addition to a range of sensors to measure, monitor and control machining processes. It is used to conduct tests to examine the machinability of the work material.

The major equipment in the manufacturing laboratory includes:

  • Arc Welding.
  • CNC Lathe Machine.
  • CNC Turning Machine ( 3-axis vertical machining).
  • Deep Drawing Machine.

Thermal Sciences Laboratory

Our Heat Transfer Laboratory caters to both mechanical and chemical engineering courses that deal with problems, to obtain solutions for thermo-fluid systems. Experiments include:  pipe flows, flow meters, hydrostatic forces on immersed systems, pumps performance curves, jet forces, thermal conductivity of materials, heat transfer coefficients, heat exchanger performance, air-condition units, refrigeration cycles, boiling and condensation processes.

The major equipment in the laboratory includes:

  • Mahler bomb calorimeter ASTM D240.
  • Flash point Pensky-Martens apparatus.
  • Marcet boiler.
  • Heat exchanger bench top study unit.
  • Bench top study unit.
  • Tubular Heat exchanger.
  • Boiling heat transfer apparatus.
  • Double trace oscilloscope 50 MHZ.
  • Bench top cooling towers study unit.
  • Refrigeration study unit with heat pump.
  • Air conditioning study unit with heat pump.
  • Computerized boiling point heat transfer unit.
  • Heat transfer study unit.
  • Bench top service unit.
  • Linear heat conduction study unit.
  • Combined convection and radiation study unit.
  • Internal combustion engine test bed.

     

Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

The fluid mechanics lab is equipped to perform and demonstrate a number of experiments that provide undergraduate students with the practical applications of fluid mechanics.

The major equipment in the laboratory includes:

  • Impact of jet apparatus.
  • Bernoulli’s Apparatus.
  • Hydrostatics experiment bench.
  • Pelton Turbine apparatus.
  • Laminar flow table.
  • Reynolds Osborn Apparatus.
  • Fluid Properties Apparatus.
  • Orifice and Jet Free Apparatus.
  • Fluid friction apparatus.
  • Wind tunnel.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure Apparatus.
  • Multi Pump Test Rig.
  • Arm field C7-MKII-10 (Water Hammer circuit).
  • Flow Visualization Apparatus.
