Don’t be surprised to find the brain and hands of a mechanical engineer behind essentially every part of your life – from mobile phones and biomedical devices, to aircraft and power plants.
Mechanical Engineering involves the design, manufacture or operation of any product or system that moves and uses or produces energy. As a mechanical engineer, your knowledge and skills will be applied from design right through to product usage. The Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) programme integrates theory with practical learning through design projects with industry partners, solving real-life problems, providing first-hand insights into complete design cycles in commercial enterprises, and linking you to industry even before graduating. You can also be part of the cutting-edge research efforts of faculty members to bring innovative technologies to the world.
The versatility of Mechanical Engineering opens up a wide array of career options, from the traditional aerospace, automotive and manufacturing industries, to robotics, biomedical technology, energy systems and sustainable technology. Our graduates’ creativity, critical thinking and teamwork are also highly valued in non-engineering fields, such as consulting, management, banking and finance.
Specialisation options include:
• Aeronautical Engineering
• Energy & Sustainability
• Offshore Oil & Gas Technology
