​​​​​​​​Introduction

Mechanical Engineering is the application of engineering principles to the design, development and manufacturing of mechanical devices and systems. The programme educational objective is to produce technically qualified Mechanical Engineers with the potential to become leaders in the Energy and Manufacturing Sectors who are committed to the sustainable development of Energy and Manufacturing Sectors for the betterment of society and nation.

The programme stresses on strong foundation in Mathematics and Physics followed by a thorough coverage of basic engineering courses such as Introduction to Material Science, Engineering Drawing, Electrical Power and Machines, Manufacturing Technology I and Statics. 

In the second year of study, students are exposed to courses in Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Solid Mechanics and Dynamics.  

In the third year of study, students are exposed to courses in Control Systems, Engineering Materials, Heat Transfer, Mechanics of Machines, Mechanical Engineering Design, Manufacturing Technology II and Vibrations. 

In the final year of study, students are required to undertake Computer Aided Engineering, Mechatronics, two capstone courses, Mechanical Systems Design I and Mechanical Systems Design II along with the Final Year Project I and Final Year Project II.

In addition to the above courses, students will have the opportunity to choose one of the Core Specialisations as follows:​
  • Energy Systems
  • Product Technology
  • Deepwater Technology
  • Facilities Engineering
Mechanical engineers are normally employed in automotive sector; producing automobiles and its supporting industries, manufacturing industries; industrial machines and components. The job involves designing of mechanical components and devices, supervising and maintaining the production operation. Mechanical engineers are also in demand in the oil and gas sector and energy related sector.

Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Mechanical Engineering

Programme Educational Objectives
  • To produce technically qualified Mechanical Engineers with the potential to become leaders in Energy and Manufacturing sectors. 
  • To produce Mechanical Engineers who are committed to sustainable development of Mechanical Engineering industries for the betterment of society and nation 

Programme Outcomes
To produce well-rounded graduates with the following outcomes:
  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and specialized engineering in solving complex engineering problems.
  • Identify research literature, investigate, analyse, evaluate and formulate solutions to complex Mechanical Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusion using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  • Undertake holistic design and development of complex Mechanical Engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Perform investigation into complex Mechanical Engineering using research based knowledge including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  • 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.
  • Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
  • Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
  • Internalize and practice professional ethical principles with commitment to norms of engineering practices.
  • Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large.
  • Function effectively in multi-disciplinary engineering as an individual and in a group with the capacity to be a leader.
  • Recognize the need to undertake life-long learning and possess the capacity to adapt to technological changes.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding in project management, business acumen and entrepreneurship in multidisciplinary environments.

Graduation Requirements
In order to graduate with the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Mechanical degree, students are required to obtain a minimum of 145 credit hours and a minimum CGPA of 2.00/4.00.
