The KAUST Mechanical Engineering (ME) Program course curriculum is modern and rigorous. The courses in the program provide a solid foundation in subjects such as mechanical behavior of engineering materials, continuum mechanics, thermodynamics, conventional and renewable energy, experimental and numerical combustion, computational fluid dynamics, robotics, control, and dynamics. Our graduates are technically well trained to be productive members of the modern world society at large and specifically suited for research careers in academia, industry, and government research laboratories. We place a strong emphasis on in-class learning coupled with innovative research in a variety of areas.
We invite you to explore our website to find out more about graduate study programs and faculty research groups.
The Master's Degree (M.Sc.) is awarded upon successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours. Students are expected to complete the M.Sc. degree within 3 to 4 semesters (including one summer semester, i.e., 12 to 18 months in total). The M.Sc. degree is offered for traditional full-time students and could be a terminal M.Sc., as well as a gateway to the Ph.D. program. All M.Sc. students are expected to complete a capstone experience that includes thesis preparation and oral defense. The non-thesis option is available in the ME Program.
