ALHOSN University, a leading Abu Dhabi-based university dedicated to high-quality value-based education, officially launched its Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) program during a ceremony held yesterday (Wednesday, January 11, 2012) at the university campus. The BSME program will be offered alongside the existing Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) track, and will fall under the newly-instituted Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering.
ALHOSN’s mechanical engineering curriculum is a four-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Many of its courses have compulsory hands-on laboratory components. The undergraduate program combines strong foundations in the engineering sciences with exceptional quantitative, problem-solving, design, and communication skills. The BSME program is accredited by the UAE Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.
“We developed our BSME curriculum with an eye on gaining national and regional recognition as a leader institution in mechanical engineering education and research. We intend to expose our students to a wide range of theories and practices to ensure successful careers. Mechanical engineering plays an important role in our region’s growth, as it is an essential discipline in the production and processing of petroleum and natural gas, as well as the broader energy sector, including civilian nuclear energy. In fact, nuclear engineering is an option in our mechanical engineering program. We shall create world-class talents for these vital fields,” said Dr. Mohammed Chacha, Chair of the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department, ALHOSN University.
Registration for the first BSME courses offered in Spring Semester of 2012 is now open. Students and other interested parties are advised to contact the Dean of Engineering and Applied Sciences or visit www.alhosnu.ae  for more information on BSME and ALHOSN’s other engineering programs.
Named after Abu Dhabi’s historic ALHOSN Palace, ALHOSN University was founded in 2005 by the Abu Dhabi Holding Company in response to growing local demand for high-quality, value-based educational institutions. It currently offers 12 undergraduate and 7 graduate programs under the Faculties of Engineering and Applies Sciences, Business, and Arts and Social Sciences.
