Mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves including the human body.
Mechanical engineers learn about materials, statics and dynamics, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, control engineering, industrial engineering, instrumentation and design. It also covers designing and manufacturing everything from small individual parts to large systems such as airplanes and spacecraft.
Mechanical engineering is perhaps the broadest and most diverse engineering discipline as it will require you to learn skills for everything that is made.
Is this programme for me?
If you have these characteristics, then this programme may suit you.
What will I learn?
This programe involves the principles of engineering such as statics, materials science, design and analysis of mechanical parts and systems.
This field also requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, structural analysis, electrical and electronic system.
Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided design, and product lifecycle management to design and analyse manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transportation systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and others.
Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)
PEO 1 : To produce employable graduates with adequate knowledge and competency in various fields of mechanical engineering
PEO 2 : To produce graduates with professional attributes, and are adaptable to the global work environment
The graduates of Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours) at the time of graduation will have to demonstrate the following PLOs:
PLO1 : Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and mechanical engineering fundamentals to the solution of complex mechanical engineering problems.
PLO2 : Ability to identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex mechanical engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
PLO3 : Ability to design solutions for complex mechanical 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.
PLO4 : Ability to conduct investigation of complex mechanical engineering 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.
PLO5 : Ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex mechanical engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
PLO6 : Ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex mechanical engineering problems.
