Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the responsible development of products, processes, and power, whether at the molecular scale or at the scale of large and complex systems. Mechanical engineering principles and skills are needed at some stages during the conception, design, development, and manufacture of every human-made object with moving parts. Many innovations crucial to our futures will have their roots in the world of mass, motion, forces, and energy the world of mechanical engineers.
A career as a mechanical engineer is concerned with the application of physical and human resources in improving human living standards. A mechanical engineer combines the knowledge of fundamental sciences and engineering majors with experience and expertise to devise, run, and maintain mechanical devices and systems in industries. A mechanical engineer also designs and produces a component, a machine or a system, ranging from the smallest components like sensors to the largest systems like cars.
The Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering programme in UCTS is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills to become a competent practitioner within the field of mechanical engineering. After the degree, graduates will be able to choose a career in various sectors such as manufacturing, processing, energy sector, transportation, oil and gas, aerospace and research labs. A mechanical engineer may advance his career either as a consulting engineer providing professional advices to clients, as an engineering project manager, as a research and design engineers responsible for developing and testing new products or as an academician.
