A Message From The Chair
Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering department at PMU (ME@PMU).
ME@PMU is guided by PMU principles and foundations. Our mission is aligned with the college and the university mission. Our graduates are challenged to posses the six PMU competencies of Communication, Technological Competence, Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, Professional Competence, Teamwork and Leadership.

At ME@PMU, we are continuously working toward providing a rich learning environment for future leaders in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the surrounding region in the field of Mechanical Engineering. By generating new knowledge and inspiring innovation, we set our students on the path of high achievement and sustainable success. Our endeavour at ME@PMU is to utilize basic sciences and mathematics in addition to technology and engineering principles to enhance the quality of life for our society.

ME@PMU has the highest student population at the male campus with well established laboratories and well renowned Faculty members. We are fortunate to have self-motivated students that undertake comprehensive studies in engineering mechanics and design, energy, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, project management and computer aided engineering in their way to becoming mechanical engineers. Our Faculty and students are working on making ME@PMU a contributing partner to major professional societies such as ASME, SPE, ASHRAE and ASM among others.

On an ongoing process, ME@PMU strives to address demanding problems of the rapidly developing and evolving industrial society around us, with investigations into design, material engineering, nano-fluids and environmental sustainable designs (ESD). Consequently, ME@PMU is in the process of introducing three postgraduate degrees: Master in Mechanical Systems, Master in Thermofluids and Master in Energy Systems.

ME@PMU welcomes both local and international students to our programs. If you wish to pursue your mechanical engineering education with us and join the future leaders of the profession, please do not hesitate to contact us.
