Our vision is to be recognized as an innovative and leading Mechanical & Industrial Engineering Department in the Gulf and beyond.
The mission of the mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department is to provide an intellectual environment that allows a world class learning, teaching, advancing frontiers of knowledge in mechanical and industrial engineering profession through research and development, and to offer services to the local community. This will be accomplished by:
- Providing a comprehensive engineering education with long life learning skills that encompasses engineering knowledge, ethics and values.
- Offering services to the industries through partnership programs in research, consultancy and professional development.
- Promoting communication channels for collaboration with the local and international communities to enhance public awareness and advancement of the engineering knowledge
IE Program Educational Objectives
In alignment with the University, College and Department missions, the IE Program, with contribution and needs of all constituencies, has established five Program Educational Objectives (PEO). These objectives are to produce graduates who:
1. practice industrial engineering in industries, government sectors and service organizations, both nationally and globally, or pursue higher studies or business entrepreneurships.
2. apply knowledge and skills to design, develop, implement and improve integrated systems that include people, materials, information, equipment and energy.
3. apply analytical, computational and modern engineering tools and technologies to accomplish system integration.
4. undertake direct, effective and leadership role in the development of Oman by contributing to the development of its capabilities and the best use of its resources.
5. are knowledgeable in ethical issues, maintain high standards of health, safety and environment, communicate well and function individually and in multidisciplinary teams.

The Program Outcomes for the Industrial Engineering program consist of eleven outcomes a-k established by ABET and an additional program outcome adopted by the faculty and MIE Industrial Advisory Board that contributes to the achievement of Program Educational Objectives. The Program Outcomes are:
a) An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering.
b) An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
c) An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
d) An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
e) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
f) An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
g) An ability to communicate effectively.
h) The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental and societal context.
i) A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
j) A knowledge of contemporary issues.
k) An ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
