How will I benefit from taking this course?
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.
Applicants must hold a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering 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 field may be considered on a case-by-case basis. We also require a 3.0 GPA and a 550 TOEFL score OR 6.5 IELTS. We conditionally admit students with a 2.5 GPA and a 530 TOEFL score OR 6 IELTS.
What former student's have said
“The professors are highly knowledgeable and highly cooperative. While working on research, you get very constructive feedback from the professors. Moreover, the courses are interesting and prepare 30 American University of Sharjah you for the future. In addition, the facilities provided by the department are extremely helpful for research and studies. Overall, I feel privileged to be enrolled in one of the region’s leading universities.”
Tahir Abdul Hussain Ratlamwala, MSME graduate
“The MSME program at AUS has a variety of areas that one could focus on. It ranges from manufacturing processes to thermofluids to fluid dynamics. I am planning to continue my thesis in fluid dynamics, and the new wind tunnel will be very beneficial for my thesis development. The program has also increased my knowledge and ability to solve real-life problems at work.”
