ABOUT THIS PROGRAMME

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?

  • Do you like physics and mathematics?
  • Are you always curious about how things work?
  • Do you like to dismantle things to see what’s inside and put them back together?
  • Do you see yourself as an inventor?
  • Do you like to build something new?
  • Do you want to be able to contribute and make a difference to the world?

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.

What should I expect?

Solid foundation in mathematics, physics and chemistry is required for a student to acquire knowledge and skills effectively in his/her learning process in this programme.

Graduates of this programme will be capable of performing engineering tasks in the manufacturing or production sectors, power generation, oil and gas sectors, transportation (road, train, naval, aircraft), building services and construction industries.

Professional Recognition

This programme is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC). EAC is a delegated body by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) as the only recognized accrediting body for engineering degree programmes offered in Malaysia.

These degree programmes are also internationally recognised under the Washington Accord, a multi-national agreement which recognises the substantial equivalency of engineering degree programmes accredited by the responsible bodies in each of the current signatory countries.

As a Washington Accord signatory, Malaysia’s degrees that have been accredited by the EAC will be accepted by other Washington Accord signatories. This means that students who study in universities with engineering degrees that are accredited by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) may find work in other countries that have signed the Washington Accord.

How does the professional recognition for this programme benefit me?

Recognition under the Washington Accord allows graduates to be recognised worldwide for career opportunities or for further education progression.

After graduation, an engineer needs to register with the Board of Engineers Malaysia to be a graduate engineer. After a few years of practical experience (supervised by a professional engineer), the graduate engineer can apply to sit for Professional Interview (with BEM/ IEM). If he/she passes the Interview, he/she can apply to the BEM to be a Professional Engineer that entitles him/her to use the title Ir.

To qualify for the registration, a candidate must:

  • Graduate from recognized engineering first degree.
  • Be a graduate engineer registered with the Board of Engineers Malaysia.
  • Have minimum of 3 years’ experience and apply for Professional Interview. Successful candidates will be entitled as Professional Engineering bringing the title Ir.
  • Have maintained continuing professional development at a satisfactory level.
