Program Educational Objectives

  1. 1.To provide engineers with the opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills in mechanical engineering so that they can adapt very quickly to technological changes in the workplace.
  2. 2.To equip graduates with the ability to practice their profession with advanced skills or to pursue doctoral studies.

Program Learning Outcomes

  1. 1.Conduct, present and defend independently quality, original research.
  2. 2.Demonstrate a broad knowledge in different areas of Mechanical Engineering.
  3. 3.Demonstrate a depth of knowledge in a chosen emphasis area of mechanical engineering.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the MS in Mechanical Engineering program is subject to the graduate admission requirements of the university as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”. In addition, the following requirements are to be met:

  1. 1.Bachelor of Engineering degree in mechanical engineering or its equivalent from a recognized university (holders of BS degrees in mechanical engineering will have to take a set of remedial courses to be specified on a case by case basis in order to meet the total number of credits required).
  2. 2.Cumulative GPA of 3.0 minimum (or its equivalent from a recognized faculty of engineering).
  3. 3.GRE Scores.
  4. 4.Approval of the Faculty Graduate Committee.

Furthermore, applicants should be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. All English requirements, as stated in the catalog under “Graduate Admission”, are to be fulfilled.

Graduation Requirements

The program leads to the degree of Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering awarded once the following requirements are fulfilled:

  1. 1.The candidate is required to successfully earn a total of 30 credits, maintaining a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0. A graduate course must be passed with a minimum grade of “C.” Students enrolled in graduate studies must uphold a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 across all courses taken for their graduate programs, with no more than two grades of "C" per program. In the event of failure, a course may be retaken once, provided that the grade earned is "D" or higher. However, receiving an "F" grade in a course results in automatic exclusion from the program.
  2. 2.Holders of a bachelor of engineering in mechanical engineering (5-year program leading to the degree of BE) from a recognized university may apply to transfer a maximum of twelve credits from their undergraduate upper level courses equivalent to 500-level mechanical engineering courses at NDU. Only courses with a B grade can be considered for transfer.
  3. 3.The candidate must attend a series of 0-carrying credit seminars as recommended by the Graduate Committee of the Faculty. The course grading is based on attendance and is pass or fail.
  4. 4.The residency requirements and maximum load per semester are as per rules and regulations for graduate programs at NDU.


Elective Courses (18cr.)

Select a minimum of one course from each required pool and the remainder from the elective pools within each category. Ensure that the electives encompass at least one course at the 700-level.
