The Mechanical Engineering program of RIT Dubai is a 30 credit hour degree program. It is intended to be a terminal degree program designed for those who wish to become a leader within the mechanical engineering field.


The Mechanical Engineering program of RIT Dubai is particularly well-suited for students who wish to study part-time, for those interested in updating their technical skills, or for those not focused on a research-oriented Master of Science thesis. A conventional thesis is not required for the program. In its place, students complete a capstone experience, which may be, a well-organized and carefully chosen industrial internship, a project with paper option, or a research methods course.

Five focus areas, specializations, are offered at RIT Dubai: Sustainability, Thermo/Fluids Engineering, Mechanics and Design, Controls and Business. In addition, tailor made study programs with focus suitable for an applicant's needs may be discussed and approved based on course availability.

All courses are delivered in the evening in order to fit part-time working student’s schedules.
