Faculty of Engineering & Technology (FET)

(R2/521/6/0027) 10/27 (MQA/FA8757)

B.Eng (Hons.) Mechanical is one of the top in-demand disciplines of engineering. Mechanical engineers are relatively versatile and knowledgeable in various fields (both technical and managerial) that increase their value and demand in the job market. Students enrolling in this course will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to apply principles and fundamentals in Engineering Mathematics, Applied Mechanics, Mechanical Design, Thermal/Fluid Sciences, and Material Science to solve complex engineering problems. Throughout the four years Mechanical Engineering degree programme, students will also gain knowledge and experience on the current trend research areas encompassing Renewable Energy, Nanofluids, Composite Materials, Ergonomics, Machine Design and Tribology.

In addition, students are also given the opportunity to select the elective subjects related to IR-4.0 such as Additive Manufacturing, Robotics and Automation, IoT Design and Interfacing, and Artificial Intelligence & Applications. This programme also provides students with industrial experience and research training by requiring students to complete industrial training, capstone design project and final year project geared towards making them industry ready in this era of Industry 4.0.
