Degree awarded:

The Alsalama college of Science and Technology Bachelor degree in mechanical engineering speciality production and power after the termination of the credit hours distributed to ten semesters by the study plan. It must be based on the student's research project for a period of two semesters in the final year of his studies.


The Mechanical Engineering at Alsalama Collage will become nationally recognized for graduating students that have experienced putting theory into practice and are also capable of succeeding in advanced studies.


The mission of the Mechanical Engineering major is to provide students with a supportive environment that facilitates learning to solve problems in mechanical. The Mechanical Engineering major is committed to excellence in student learning. Graduates of the majors will be problem solvers, able to apply engineering principles to mechanical system.
