Introduction​

1.1.jpg

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:

  • Energy Systems
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Advanced Materials Engineering
  • Asset Integrity and Reliability

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.

 

 

Programme Educational Objectives

  • Engineers who are competent with the potential to become leaders of Mechanical Engineering industries.
  • Engineers who are committed to sustainable development of Mechanical Engineering industries for the betterment of the society. 

 

Programme Outcomes

To produce well-rounded graduates with the following outcomes:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics and engineering sciences.
  • Design solutions for complex 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.
  • Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, 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 and solutions to complex engineering problems.
  • Evaluate sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts.
  • Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  • Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
  • Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and society.
  • Apply knowledge of engineering management principles and economic decision making in one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
