Diploma of Mechanical Engineering

(R/521/4/0061)(08/23) (AA 0045)

Programme Overview:
Mechanical engineering is the broadest among all engineering disciplines. Thus, most of the modern day inventions are due to knowledge and application of mechanical engineering. Ranging from simple machineries to supersonic jets and self-driving vehicles, mechanical engineers were always involved from the inception of an idea to the creation of market-ready product. Graduates trained under mechanical engineering will be equipped with the know-hows and skills to work in a wide spectrum of industries such as manufacturing, automotive, modern agriculture, bio-medical, building services and product design. They are well prepared to contribute to the modern world, fulfilling the needs of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0).
