What will you study?
Design is the backbone of the course which is reinforced with engineering science, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, materials, statics and dynamics (the action of forces on stationary and moving bodies), solid mechanics, stress analysis and structural design, vibrations, fluid mechanics, automatic control, thermodynamics, heat transfer, electrical and electronic engineering fundamentals, manufacturing engineering, management and computing. Practical work is carried out in an extensive laboratory program and in project work at all levels of the course. The course includes industry-based projects at Levels III and IV.
At the end of the course you will have developed a feel for the philosophy of Mechanical Engineering, be capable of functioning in an environment of rapid technological change, and will know how to go about tackling any unfamiliar engineering problem. This is not to say that your engineering education is over. Far from it! One principal aim of the course is to provide graduates with the ability and confidence to continue lifelong education within their chosen profession.
