Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Mechanical Engineering

About the Course

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.
