Why at AUS
The global economy and rapid changes in technology require an increasing number of engineers with technical expertise beyond the bachelor's degree level.
Our Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) program is accredited by the?Commission for Academic Accreditation?of the?Ministry of Education's Higher Education Affairs Division?in the United Arab Emirates. The program is designed for those?whose goal is to work in the different subdisciplines of mechanical engineering, including thermal and green energy systems, fluid systems, solid mechanics, design and manufacturing, and dynamics and control. Our program enhances the technical skills of all mechanical engineers to meet today's demands as well as those of the future. Based on high standards similar to those followed in the United States, this program educates mechanical engineers on solving challenging mechanical engineering problems well beyond what they encounter at the undergraduate level.

The mission of the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) program at AUS is to prepare professionals for advanced careers and/or doctoral studies related to mechanical engineering. The program is continuously striving to create a stimulating proactive learning environment that promotes excellence in teaching and research to assist the students in becoming competent, innovative, and responsible professionals.
Program Educational Objectives
Graduates of the MSME program will be prepared to:
Upon graduation, an AUS MSME graduate should demonstrate the ability to:
What are our admission and program requirements? What courses are taught in our program? Do ?students need to complete a master's thesis? The links and information below provide answers to these and other questions that you may have.
In addition to meeting the university's general graduate admission requirements, applicants must meet specific requirements of the MSME program. Applicants must hold a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree from an independently accredited university recognized by AUS. Degreed individuals in engineering fields or a quantitative science field that is closely related to the sought program may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
An applicant with a bachelor's degree in technology (or less than four years of university-level work) will not normally be admitted to our program.
Students in this program choose from two options: a thesis option and a non-thesis (professional project) option. The links below provide more details.
A complete guide for preparing the thesis/project is available on the?Office of Graduate Studies ilearn page.
