Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology
This program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
Mechanical Engineering is the oldest field of engineering specializations. In the past decades, Mechanical Engineering shared the development and civilization of different nations. Mechanical Engineering used the energy of waterfall, wind and steam for the technological development and civilization. Mechanical Engineering focuses on energy conversions, power machines, machine design, production processes, and testing and evaluation of the industrial products.
Some of the most important branches of Mechanical Engineering are: Applied Mechanics, and Ventilation and air conditioning. Due to its importance in development and civilization, and due to the needs of the Palestinian community for specialized and well trained mechanical engineers, the Engineering Faculty has established the Mechanical Engineering Department in the year 2002. Admission to the Mechanical Engineering Department was started in the first academic semester 2002 /2003.
The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Program is focused in three dimensions, locally, regionally and internationally, and it is based and compromises well with the missions of both the Engineering Faculty and the University. Mechanical Engineering Program is established to take an advanced-important position in the development of the local society, by providing the local and regional work-market with well educated and trained Mechanical Engineers according to international standards in education and training.
The program has a cooperation agreement with Padico Holding Company. This agreement allows students to visit different sites of the company and use different facilities. In addition, some joined graduation projects are usually held out in Palestinian Industrial Investment Company which is one branch of Padico Company. Moreover, different graduation projects are cooperation with local industrial companies.
