  • Studying mechanical engineering has helped me understand product design, thermodynamics material engineering, and mechanical dynamic. In terms of engineering they are one of the leaders in the country.

    - Connor Felstead, Mechanical Engineering graduate

  • University gave me the chance to study abroad and achieve my ambition. I would like to thank my professors for all their encouragement.

    - Dalal Alsalman, Electrical and Electronics Engineering BEng (2018)

  • My lecturers and supervisors believed in my potential, I will miss them and the friends I made during my time at university.

    - Ruth Tela, Engineering Management MEng (2018)
