The American University in Cairo (AUC) provides a quality education which advances the ideals of American liberal arts and professional education and of life-long learning. Stemming from a strong base of resources including Faculty, Libraries, Computer Facilities, and up to date Labs, AUC provides an outstanding opportunity for an education that serves local and international societal needs.

Mechanical Engineering involves the application of scientific knowledge for the design and manufacturing of devices and mechanical systems that use or transfer mechanical and thermal energies. The mechanical engineer should strive both to serve the needs of the society without unduly damaging the environment, and to produce devices and systems that use energy and material resources efficiently


The AUC is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012; Tel. (410) 347-7700;

ABET-accredited programs are recognized worldwide. Graduates of ABET-accredited engineering programs are eligible to register as professional engineers in many countries around the world, including the United States, Canada and Australia, after passing the required examinations.
