I would like to welcome you to the Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department. The department offers undergraduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Nuclear Engineering. These are two new and exciting programs that have recently been added to the College of Engineering at the UOS.Mechanical Engineering
is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. It applies the principles of engineering, material science, physics and mathematics to design, analyze and manufacture machines of all types including automobiles, airplanes, rockets, submarines, power generation systems, biomedical instrumentation, robots, manufacturing systems, household appliances and many, many more.Nuclear Engineering
is focused on the study and application of the properties of atomic nuclei and their reactions in areas such as energy production, industrial quality control, medical diagnostics or cancer treatment. In addition to well-known areas, nuclear engineers are involved in many other applications of nuclear science and technology in fields as diverse as agriculture, industry, homeland security, forensics, environmental protection and even art.
Both Programs are four-year study program that provides you with a broad scientific and technical background in these fields. During the first three semesters, there is a focus on basic sciences such as mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The following three semesters include courses and labs that are more specialized and closely related to mechanical and nuclear engineering. In the second segment, you will learn the fundamentals of mechanical and nuclear engineering and gain knowledge in multiple related engineering topics including electronics, materials, and fluid mechanics. In the final semesters of your study, you will take advanced courses in mechanical, nuclear engineering, undergo eight-week practical training, and complete senior design projects.
We are committed to providing a robust and well-trained work-force to serve to meet the UAE's growing need in the field of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering.
Once again, I would like to welcome you to the department, and I congratulate you on your decision to join these new and prosperous programs.
