Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering Honours

Programme Overview

Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the responsible development of products, processes, and power, whether at the molecular scale or at the scale of large and complex systems.  Mechanical engineering principles and skills are needed at some stages during the conception, design, development, and manufacture of every human-made object with moving parts.  Many innovations crucial to our futures will have their roots in the world of mass, motion, forces, and energy-the world of mechanical engineers.

Programme Aims

To produce mechanical engineers capable of fulfilling their professional demands in highly competitive global markets with confidence, outstanding ethical and moral values.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

  • Graduates will be employed in mechanical and relevant engineering field with good level of knowledge and competency skills with appropriate attitude enabling them to have successful career.
  • Graduates will acquire abilities for effective communication, creativity, entrepreneur leadership, collaborative working in diverse teams and continual development through professional involvement. 
  • Graduates will pursue lifelong learning in order to contribute to the advancement of the Mechanical Engineering professions and related contemporary issues.

Programme Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

  2. Identify, formulate, and conduct research literature and analyses complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.

  3. 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.

  4. Ability to use the advance techniques, competent create, 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.

  5. 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.
