Mechanical engineering is a broad area that includes application of physics and science principles into energy systems, design and manufacturing. The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in (Mechanical Engineering) programme aims to train graduates that are capable of fulfilling the tasks of a mechanical engineering scientist in various institutions and companies within the country, as well as globally. Young graduates will be able to find job opportunities in various industrial sectors such as research and development, product and process design as well as in manufacturing. Further career options include career in institution of higher learning as a researcher or academician, as well as in sales and businesses.
As an undergraduate working towards your bachelor’s degree, you will learn the science and engineering principles that apply to mechanical engineering systems. Through hands-on computer and laboratory work in our state-of-the-art facilities, your skills will be developed in specialized areas as solid and fluid mechanics, machine control systems and robotic devices. There is a large selection of technical electives that can be taken the senior year, which include in areas of resource conservation, improved efficiency of energy-consuming devices, renewable energy sources, biomedical systems as well as nanotechnology and mechatronics. There is also a variety of industry-sponsored projects which form the basis of your year-long capstone design experience.
Since this program aims to train qualified scientists in the field of mechanical engineering and the qualification awarded is a “Bachelor of Science”, this program do not involve recognition from the Board of Engineers Malaysia.
