The Master of Science degree program in Mechanical Engineering is a research intensive program, which offers a wide range of challenging and rewarding engineering experience. This includes research on energy, thermo-fluids, materials science and engineering, automotive, aerospace, design for sustainability, alternative-energy technologies, manufacturing processes, corrosion science and prevention, computational mechanics, combustion, mechatronics, robotics, computational science and engineering, process optimization, and biomedical engineering. Master degree in Mechanical engineering can be tailored to meet both broad and highly specialized interests (such as Materials Science and Engineering, Manufacturing Systems) can involve applied or fundamental research, and can prepare students for employment in industrial sectors. Students with the master’s degree can be also prepared to continue his education toward a doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering.

The mission of the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program in the College of Engineering is to prepare students for careers in private and public sectors and for advanced level in research that leads to high scholarly achievements, and advanced knowledge. The major emphasis of the program is to foster a deeper understanding of the engineering research process and learn the professional skills.

The structure of the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering program is unique, as it helps the engineers become more effective technical specialists, and strengthens their ability to lead people and projects. Conducting original research is an important goal of a Master program study in the College of Engineering, Qatar University. Research provides a type of education not available through classroom teaching. The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering program is designed to enhance students' competencies in contributing to the existing body of knowledge and to innovation and creation of new knowledge. Students are expected to equip themselves with strong theoretical and methodological foundations and to develop their ability to independently conduct research.
