Department of Mechanical Engineering

Graduation Projects

The Graduating Project is part of the curriculum that the students must take after completing 120 credit hours of course work. The graduating project (1 and 2) is taken in two semesters.
Students are encouraged to tackle engineering problems with application to current problems or to pursue problems that are of research nature.  In the graduating project, mechanical students learn how to use gained engineering knowledge and apply it in a systematic methodology to solving real-situation problems; be it in application or research.  The students work under the supervision of one of the faculty members.

Typical areas of interest to students include:
-  Renewable energy methods and conversion
-  Control systems
-  Analysis and design of mechanical systems (machines)
-  Analyses and design of air-conditioning and heating systems with emphasis on improved methods for conserving energy
-  Advanced topics in the area of thermal, fluid and solid mechanics
