Mechanical Engineering forms the basis for various engineering disciplines. Graduates of this field may be employed in a vast range of career opportunities. The Applied Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering 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 qualifications are also available as exit awards of the Applied Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering.
The Applied Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering is a four-year programme based on the vocational curriculum for higher education awards. Students enrolled in this programme 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 in the Applied Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering will learn to use their mathematical and analytical skills to deal with and 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 in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs.
The programme is also accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Engineering Society, RAeS, UK. This enables graduate of this programme to qualify for the Status of CEng, Chartered Engineer and/or IEng, Incorporated Engineer in their discipline. Students that successfully complete the programme have the option of obtaining a Coventry University certificate.
Mechanical engineers are sought-after in all types of industries, such as construction, marine, power generation, Automotive, oil and gas, and aeromechanical engineering. The Applied Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering programme helps learners build a firm foundation for employment. Graduates may choose to pursue a higher education (Master’s and PhD degrees) in several engineering disciplines, including Mechanical, Aeronautical, Petroleum Engineering and power generation.
In collaboration with EK Engineering and the Emirates Group, EAU will offer its active students who are enrolled in this programme, a six-month industrial internship. This is embedded into the curriculum of the programme and weighting fifteen credits in their semester 6 of their studies.
The coveted internship programme with one of the region’s most successful organisations, will help students combine academic study with practical skills and experience relevant to their education and career plans. Top achiever students enrolled in the internship programme will also receive a monthly nominal compensation to cover their costs.
While at EAU, not only students learn comprehensive theory, but EAU will also provide the means to gain practical experience in well-equipped laboratories and workshops as well as the provision of hands on experience in a real workplace environment through on job training and internships.
Accreditation for Prior Learning (APL)
(APL) is an academic process that recognizes and values your previous study.
(APL) is allowed in Year 1 and Year 2 and Year (3). I.e. you can skip modules from the first year, second year and even the third year in case you did similar modules in another institution.
