Mechanical Engineering is the application of engineering principles to the design, development and manufacturing of mechanical devices and systems.
The programme stresses on strong foundation in Mathematics, Sciences and Engineering. In the first year, student will be introduced to engineering fundamentals through courses such as Introduction to Material Science, Electrical Power and Machines, Manufacturing Technology I, Statics, Dynamics and Engineering Drawing.
In the second year, students' engineering knowledge are further developed with courses such as Solid Mechanics, Engineering Materials, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics.
In the third year of study, students are exposed to courses such as Heat Transfer, Mechanical Engineering Design and Vibrations.
In the final year of study, students are required to undertake Computer Aided Engineering, Mechatronics, Manufacturing Technology II, Integrated Design Project and Final Year Project.
In addition to the above courses, students may further develop their engineering knowledge through to one of the Core Specialisations as follows:
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.
In order to graduate with the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours, students are required to obtain a minimum of
143 credit hours. and a minimum CGPA of 2.00/4.00
Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours
Students are required to choose any of the following sets of Core Specialisation's areas (set A, B, C, or D) for Core Specialisation Elective I, II and III.
Choose any four (4) courses under the same group (A, B, C or D) to be eligible for a Core Specialisation.
Engineering students who are interested to enhance their knowledge in management and business will have the option to complete courses offered under Minor. There are four Minor packages available to Engineering students as follows:
In order to be eligible for Minor, students are required to pass and complete all the courses under the same package (15 credits). Results obtained from courses under Minor will be counted into GPA/CGPA calculation. Students are reminded that the option to complete Minor courses are at the students' discretion and are not compulsory. The total credit hours accumulated under Minor courses will be over and above the graduation requirements of 143 credit hours.
