Welcome to the Mechanical & Industrial Engineering Section (M&I) of the Department of Engineering at University of Technology and Applied Sciences (UTAS-A).

The undergraduate programmes, offered by the M&I section, primarily intend to prepare our graduates to adapt themselves to the ever-changing technological world and come out with flying colors. The M&I section strives to equip students to become industrial leaders with high-quality engineering education, by disseminating knowledge and technologies through quality teaching, research and its applications in Mechanical Engineering and allied disciplines.

The M&I section has more than 45 highly qualified and experienced academic staff, to cater to the needs of the Mechanical Engineering and Applied Sciences courses as well.

All laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, which provide students with an understanding of the theoretical concepts and practical experience that will make them industry ready. The data acquisition systems interfaced with most of the laboratory equipment promulgate research-based learning. Advanced software like ANSYS, SOLIDWORKS, ADAMS,

AUTOMATION STUDIO, etc., help in imparting students with the latest skills required for leading industries.

The M&I section offers various short-term training programmes to provide contemporary skills required in the job market. In addition, the section also takes special interest in training students to participate in various national and international competitions in Mechanical Software, Robotics and other interdisciplinary fields.

The M&I section also offers enough opportunities for students to work in active research groups and carry out collaborative and interdisciplinary research projects, funded by The Research Council (TRC), Oman, and other national research agencies as well.

The Mechanical & Industrial section is committed to incorporating the latest trends and developments in Engineering and other emerging fields into its programme. With the excellent congruence of the theoretical and practical training offered and the strong academic standards maintained by the college, our students are well-positioned to take full advantage of the opportunities available in the rapidly expanding and emerging technology sector in the Sultanate and progress towards a rewarding career in engineering.
