The graduates of the Department are not only ably serving in Sudan but also represent the country in various industries and academic institutions abroad. The Department aspires that its students be better prepared to handle modern-life challenges therefore it is continuously striving to improve quality of education and research.

Degree awarded:

The Alsalama college of Science and Technology a diploma in mechanical engineering specialty Production & Automotive / Refrigeration & Air Conditioning after the termination of the credit hours distributed to six 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. The faculty and staff of both majors use their background in teaching, research, and industry to prepare students to be successful as they move into the workforce or graduate school.


In support of the objectives of the Mechanical Engineering major will prepare our students to be proficient at putting theory into practice, capable of lifelong learning, and be aware of the social, ethical, and environmental issues associated with their professional activities. To ensure these goals, our specific expected accomplishments of our graduates during the first several years following graduation for the major are:

  1. To be successful analysing, designing, or testing mechanical systems.
  2. To be a productive member of a team.
  3. To be assuming leadership roles in their career.

Career opportunities:

As a refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) engineer, your work could cover one of two broad areas:

  1. refrigeration – designing, installing and maintaining cooling systems in places like supermarkets, restaurants, hospitals, food processing plants and factories.
  2. air-conditioning – installing and servicing the systems that control air quality, temperature and humidity inside offices, schools, leisure complexes and other modern buildings.

Whichever area you work in, your duties could include:

  1. surveying buildings where cooling systems are to be fitted
  2. discussing requirements with customers
  3. producing quotes for work
  4. designing and installing systems
  5. running quality checks to make sure systems are working properly and safely
  6. diagnosing and fixing faults
  7. carrying out planned maintenance.

Mechanical engineering graduates (Production & Automotive) are sought by employers in almost all sectors of the engineering industry. These include:

  1. Aerospace industry – researches, designs, manufactures, operates and maintains aircraft.
  2. Automotive industry – designs, manufactures, distributes and markets motor vehicles
  3. Chemical industry – covers oil companies, chemicals manufacturers and the businesses that support them (eg to build new plants or develop new process technologies)
  4. Construction industry – designs and builds infrastructure, buildings and buildings services (eg heating and ventilation)
  5. Defence industry – provides equipment, support and services for the armed forces and national security
  6. Electronics industry – designs and manufactures components and complete equipment for sectors from automotive to medicine and the military
  7. Fast moving consumer goods industry – manufactures products such as household cleaning items, personal hygiene goods and convenience foods
  8. Marine industry – develops and helps operate vessels
  9. Materials and metals industry – activities include developing new materials and manufacturing components or end products
