Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering forms the basis for various engineering disciplines. Graduates of this field may be employed in a vast range of career opportunities. The programme is designed to enable engineers to develop their skills and competencies in mechanical, maintenance and manufacturing engineering sectors to meet the needs of today’s industry.

The following qualification is also available as exit award of the Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Mechanical Engineering.

  • Higher National Diploma (Advanced Diploma) in Mechanical Engineering – 2 Years

Why enrol on this programme?

Students will gain a range of essential competencies in areas relevant to their current or intended employment, such as CAD, drafting, engineering design, engineering management, employability skills and project management. Students will learn to use their mathematical and analytical skills to solve real-life problems. They will be equipped with competencies in organizing and analysing information, interacting with computing technology and selecting engineering materials.


The Applied Bachelor (BEng Honours) in Mechanical Engineering is a dual award programme currently being developed and finalised to be conferred by Emirates Aviation University and Coventry University, UK.

The Higher National Diploma (Advanced Diploma) in Mechanical Engineering is a dual exit award conferred by Emirates Aviation University and BTEC Pearson, UK. The EAU award is subject to recognition by the National Qualifications Authority (NQA) in the UAE.
