Mechanical Engineering - BS

Mechanical engineering (MEEN) at Texas A&M at Qatar challenges students and helps them to develop their full creative potential. Texas A&M at Qatar’s program consists of three main areas: thermal-fluid sciences, systems and controls, and mechanics and materials. The courses taken in these areas enable students to develop the technical tools and skills required for enhancing design development. The education is broad and supports students being able to choose a variety of employment or further study opportunities.

Texas A&M at Qatar received ABET accreditation in the fall of 2008. According to ABET, an engineering education accreditation organization, mechanical engineers apply principles of engineering, basic science and mathematics to model, analyze, design and realize physical systems, components or processes and work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering is a diversified profession because all industries, including oil and gas industries, chemical industries, and built environment, need mechanical engineers for designing, maintaining, testing and managing operations. In addition to industry, mechanical engineers may work for governmental and consulting organizations, and mechanical engineers may continue their studies and earn graduate degrees in MEEN or other disciplines.
