Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
General Description of the Program
The field of mechanical engineering covers two broad areas – the thermal system and the mechanical system. The traditional courses in mechanical engineering that include power plant engineering, industrial plant engineering and machine design are supplemented by new and emerging fields such as renewable energy systems, mechatronics, control system and computer applications.
The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program has the following distinctive features: elective courses in the new and emerging technologies; industry immersion or on-the-job training; research project; and a culminating design project. The program also offers new courses such as technopreneurship, design thinking and bio-engineering.
By the time of graduation, the students should have/ be able to:
- Knowledge of mathematics and science to solve complex engineering problems.
- Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability, in accordance with standards
- Ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
- Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
- Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- Ability to communicate effectively.
- Broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- Recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
- Knowledge of contemporary issues.
- Ability to use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
- Knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
