The vision is to be recognized as the prominent Mechanical Engineering program in Egypt and Africa.
The mechanical engineers should be curious about how things are made and work. Mechanical Engineering covers the design, analysis, testing and manufacturing of products that are used in every facet of modern society. Mechanical engineers conceive, plan, design and direct the production, distribution and operation of a wide variety of devices, machines and systems, environmental control and materials processing, transportation and handling.
Design and production mechanical engineers analyze their design using the principles of motion, energy, and momentum to ensure that the product functions safely, efficiently, reliably, and manufactured at a competitive cost with minimized environmental hazards. This is achieved by combining the study of science, mathematics, engineering fundamentals, design, management and quality principles. The department covers the fields of solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, engineering design, production technology, economics, and management. Basic studies are devoted to the mechanical properties of materials, machine design, dynamics and control, instrumentation, fundamentals of fluid flow, and energy and power systems. Recent developments in systems approach, information systems, advanced materials, manufacturing processes, global firms, supply chain, and quality systems will also be addressed.
The private and governmental firms, where engineering is required to design, manufacture, operate, develop or maintain mechanical systems and equipment such as industrial machinery, automotive, aerospace, power generation, and air conditioning equipment. In all phases of industrial, manufacturing, and service firms. It qualifies them to perform different managerial and technical functions that require a scientific and engineering background. A whole spectrum of industrial systems and service systems. Industrial systems include: automotive, aerospace, apparel, appliances, basic metals, beverages, building materials, ceramics, chemicals, computers, electronics, equipment, fabricated metals, food processing, glass, heavy machinery, paper, petroleum refining, pharmaceuticals, plastics, power utilities, publishing, textiles, tire and rubber, and wood and furniture. Service systems include communications, education, financial services, government, repair and maintenance, retail trade, transportation, wholesale trade, and warehousing.
