Mechanical engineering technology graduates are trained to support the design, development, and maintenance of mechanical, static as well as rotating equipment. The program also teaches them to develop effective energy solutions, and manufacture and maintain state of the art equipment. HCT Mechanical Engineers are trained to use state of the art software and hardware to rapidly prototype and test potential product design, computerized testing and measurements, and computer control of machinery.
The Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum produces high-quality engineers known for productivity, timeliness, dedication, and competence in the workplace. Graduates have the ability to work logically, accurately and efficiently; to gather and use information effectively; and to continue enhancing their careers through lifelong learning. The program stresses the effective use of technology, information resources and engineering tools. The program instills leadership qualities based on moral and ethical principles coupled with sound and rational judgment. Finally, the program is designed to prepare interested students for graduate studies in mechanical engineering technology and other areas of professional practice.

 Students are eligible for a one year Work Experiential Learning experience during their study.

Program Goals

  1. Provide Mechanical Engineering professionals who are equipped with the technical knowledge and skills required by the industry to develop, design, and maintain mechanical systems to highest level of industry standards.
  2. Prepare graduates for a successful career as effective decision makers with strong communication and teamwork skills and an understanding of the global, ethical and social implications of the industry and Mechanical Engineering profession.
  3. Provide graduates with strong commitment to lifelong learning, continuing education, and professional growth.
  4. Provide graduates with leadership qualities and commitment to contribute actively to achieving the Abu Dhabi Vision 2030.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon graduation, a HCT graduate in Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering Technology should demonstrate:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge, methods, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to Mechanical Engineering Technology;

  2. An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to Mechanical Engineering Technology;

  3. An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and non-technical environments, and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature

  4. An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes

  5. An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.

  6. An ability to develop and evaluate a business plan to transform an engineering design (systems, products, services and solutions) into a business opportunity utilizing entrepreneurial skills and knowledge
