Mechanical engineering graduates are in high demand for their ability to design machines and think innovatively. They are typically creative, can think logically, have excellent problem-solving skills and manage a project in a systematic manner. They’re involved in almost every aspect of our day-to-day life. Their innovation and design has brought us powerful cars, efficient household appliances and entertainment systems. They combine principles of mechanics, materials and energy to design faster automotive, aeronautical and robotic systems.  This three-year programme will introduce you to engineering principles and subjects such as engineering graphics, mechanical science, electrical practice, fluid mechanics, machine dynamics and robotic systems. You’ll study engineering analysis, design, manufacture and maintenance, and be trained in the use of complex equipment (computers, medical devices, robots, various consumer products). In our laboratories, you’ll face real-world issues. You’ll learn the language of engineers and begin to think like an engineer.

The opportunities for mechanical engineers are numerous. Past  graduates have gone on to work as creators and designers of new technologies. Some are involved in research of fuel and energy, materials, heating and cooling processes, storage and pumping of liquids and gases. Other  graduates work as process engineers or project  engineers in the food, pharmaceutical, medical  device, semi- conductor and energy sectors. Some rise to  work at senior management level within a few years  of graduating. Typical fields:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Semiconductor
  • Technology
  • Small to Medium Enterprises
  • Medtech
  • Food and Beverages
