  • Introduction

    It is our philosophy to inculcate engineering in student’s education with the necessary skills to advance and serve the engineering discipline by imparting knowledge to students.
    The programs of the College of Engineering Sciences are intended to meet the needs through the enhancement of students' preparation for professional careers, life-long learning, and responsible participation as members of society.

    We believe that cutting edge research is essential in knowledge based society and encourages entrepreneurship and economic development to benefit our society.
    Inclusiveness and collaboration with the industry and academia is a must on a regional and global basis.

    Through the curriculum, emphasis is placed on religious, general, and sociological education to make future engineer aware of environmental, sociological, and other "human concerns" in addition to safety, aesthetics, economics and the cost of energy in their decision-making. The programs both teach and follow ethical, environmentally responsible engineering practice.

    Clear and precise communication skills, oral and written, are required of the engineer who delivers judgments, plans and decisions.

    A sound knowledge of engineering and related disciplines is required so that the engineer can work effectively with other engineers, scientists and technicians, in fulfilling engineering assignments.

    The general engineering sciences curriculum includes the following features:

    Common Freshman Year: In spite of the fact that students are required to declare their fields of major study at the Freshman level, the various specialty departments have a common Freshman year.
    Basic Sciences: The curriculum of each major in Engineering Sciences contains a number of specially designed courses in basic sciences to provide students with a firm background in the physical sciences and mathematics. Courses in general chemistry, biology and physics, a three- semester sequence of mathematics courses, a course on differential equations and on computer programming are offered as a necessary foundation in science and computational skills.

    General Education Courses: Several courses are designed within the framework of a curriculum to broaden the students' general education. Among the fields covered are Islamic history and culture, Arabic language and literature, English and economics.

    Engineering Breadth: Several courses are required to give the student some breadth of study in science and technology. Courses in the application of computers in engineering and statistical analysis of engineering data are clear features of the programs. In addition, under the heading of "Technical Electives/Free Electives", students are permitted to extend their study into more advanced courses in science, mathematics, computer technology, the fields of engineering other than their major.

    Engineering Depth: About one full year of study is devoted to the student's major field of engineering. Most of the courses in this category are specified courses designed to give the student the essential subject materials in his major. However, two departmental electives are left open to the student so that he can extend his knowledge in his own area of interest. Finally, every student takes a course leading to an integrated design project where the student uses his engineering and design skills in planning and designing a real world engineering project. The design should take into consideration appropriate constraints such as economic factors, safety, reliability, ethics, and environmental and social impacts.

     

    Graduation Requirements

    In order to qualify for graduation, Engineering students must

    • Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

      Overview of the program
      Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Hafr Al-Batin (UoHB) proposes a four year (eight semesters) Under Graduate program (Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees) in Mechanical Engineering (M.E.). This program is oriented in such a way that it will assist in meeting an increasing demand for technically skilled people in the field of Mechanical Engineering. Also the curriculum of the program is proposed by keeping ABET requirements in view.
      BS in Mechanical Engineering is a four (4) year program, excluding the Preparatory Year. Students with good high school grades in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English are eligible for admission to the Preparatory Year engineering, a year that is common to all engineering programs and is being offered at UoHB.
      In the early stage of the program (freshman year), students are provided with the fundamentals of mathematical and scientific subjects to get an exposure to necessary knowledge and skills needed to understand the higher level engineering courses. During the middle stage of the program (sophomore and junior years), students study a broad range of courses that form the foundation of the Mechanical Engineering discipline. In the final stage, (late-junior and senior years), Students may opt elective courses of major areas of mechanical engineering as identified by American Society of Mechanical Engineers. These elective courses covers the major area such as design, manufacturing, structural and thermal engineering.
      This program is having a strong support of an active Coop work. Through Coop work, the ME program places an additional emphasis on having practical training in the industry. The industrial experience gained from this work provides its students an important link between the theoretical and practical aspects of the Mechanical engineering profession. To fulfill requirements for the Coop work, the ME students are required to invest time in an industrial setting in order to solve a real industrial problem and then at the end of the Coop work, present a seminar and submit a comprehensive technical report.
      It is worth mentioning here that the total credits requirements for a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering are 130.
       
      Main Features of the Program

      Main features of BS in ME program are as follows;

      • It meets ABET requirements
      • It meets university and college requirements
      • It offers 130 credit points for graduation
