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.
Students are required to obtain a minimum of 144 credit hours and a minimum CGPA of 2.00/4.00 to be conferred a degree of Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours.
Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours
Choose any three (3) courses under the same group (A, B, C or D) to be eligible for a Core Specialisation.
Mechanical Engineering students may enhance their knowledge in data analytics by completing a minor in Data Science. Students need to pass and complete all the five courses (15 credits) under the minor in Data
Science. Results obtained from courses under the minor in Data Science will be counted into GPA/CGPA calculation.
Students are reminded that minor courses are optional and are NOT compulsory for graduation requirements. The total credit hours accumulated under Minor courses will be over and above the graduation requirements of 144 credit hours.
