Undergraduate Programme

The Mechanical Engineering Department at University of Khartoum offers one degree: Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. The program provides service to meet the needs of students, industry, government, and society. The program offers excellence, access, and value through a strong commitment to teaching, scholarship, outreach, and professionalism.
Mechanical engineering undergraduates benefit from the faculty facilities that make University of Khartoum a great research institution. Our undergraduate program is built on a foundation of the fundamental principles: thermal and fluid sciences, solid mechanics and materials, dynamics and controls. Our students work together, both inside and outside of the classroom, in environments that help them hone the soft skills they will need to understand and solve real-world problems.
Our undergraduate program includes:
• Hands-on, team-based design courses in all five years.
• Opportunities to compete, serve and represent University of Khartoum on student design teams.
• Opportunities to make connections through professional societies.
Through choosing from a set of elective courses, students acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills that enable them to make a successful career in machine and device building enterprises, in factories for production and maintenance of military equipment, in the field of consulting and entrepreneurship services. Graduates can also work in research departments at companies, regional centers or in the field of engineering education.
Mechatronic courses provide sufficient general grounding and solid fundamentals, necessary in the implementation of future engineering and research work and enabling appropriate professional flexibility. The courses allow students to gain a thorough and integrated theoretical and practical background in the fields of mechanical engineering, instrument engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, information systems, computing and systems engineering, etc. for the purpose of creating, implementing and operation of mechatronic systems. Students are equipped with knowledge of the methodological approach in the design and implementation of mechatronic systems for a variety of purposes.
The curriculum is in conformity with the requirements of the Sudanese Engineering Council and it is to a great extent similar to the curricula of the leading universities from Europe and USA. The Graduate Attributes are as follows:
1. Engineering knowledge: apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
2. Problem analysis: identify, formulate, research literature, and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
3. Design/Development of Solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
4. Conduct Investigations of Complex Problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
5. Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
6. The Engineer and Society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
7. Environment and Sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
9. Individual and Team Work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
11. Project Management and Finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environment.
12. Life-long Learning: Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
