We developed the programme to produce graduates who are able to address both technological and societal challenges in the field of mechanical engineering.
In Year 1, the programme aims to consolidate mathematical and scientific knowledge and introducing the fundamentals of mechanical engineering. During their first year, you build a base-line of knowledge and skills, irrespective of academic backgrounds. Thus, examination results from this year do not contribute to their final grades.
Year 2 provides the fundamentals of mechanical engineering with an emphasis on application to real engineering components. The two mathematics modules during this year build the development of your essential skills, concentrated on modelling and computational aspects.
In Year 3, you get to undertake integrated project in design and research in the area of your interest while studying more advanced mechanical subjects.
In year 4, you undertake a final year project and choose from electives of your interest and non-mechanical subject areas like management and environmental issues, essential for a professional engineer in the modern world.
This programme has been approved by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC).
The objectives of this programme are to produce graduates who:
- Are employable in the global mechanical industry and other related fields of the Mechanical Engineering.
- Pursue post-graduate qualifications to satisfy a passion for research and life-long learning.
- Participate in continuous professional improvement leading to professional licensure.
Programme Learning Outcomes:
You are expected to demonstrate the following outcomes:
- Engineering Knowledge – Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
- Problem Analysis – Identify and analyse complex engineering problems, research literature and formulate substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
- Design/Development of Solutions – 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.
- Investigation – Conduct investigation into complex 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.
- Modern Tool Usage – Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
- The Engineer and Society – Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
- Environment and Sustainability – Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of sustainable development.
- Ethics – Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
- Communication – Communicate effectively on complex activities with the engineering community and society at large, with the ability to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
- Individual and Team Work – Function effectively as an individual and as a member or leader in diverse teams within multi-disciplinary settings.
- Life-long Learning – Recognise the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
- Project Management and Finance – Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles, applying it to your work as a member and leader in a team, and manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
