Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is a very broad field; hence mechanical engineers can work in a variety of different industries as well as design a wide range of products. Mechanical engineers develop, design, build, test, and inspect mechanical devices and systems, such as machines, tools, and engines. Mechanical engineers often work on the newest industrial pursuits, particularly in automation and robotics, alternative energies and nanotechnology.
 
The Mechanical Engineering Programme offers new opportunities for occupational growth, such as designing production projects to harness developments, improvements of technology in healthcare, or designing more powerful computer chips for the ever-growing digital era. The wide career spectrum opens up opportunities for different genders, different levels of ability, and different interests. The key is that the Mechanical Engineering Programme develops a skilled personnel with competent technical and analytical skills that could be of good use wherever needed.
